Pop star Beyonce has confirmed she'll lead the cast in Clint Eastwood's A Star Is Born remake.
The Halo hitmaker, who previously starred in Dreamgirls and Austin Powers: Gold Member, has been linked to the leading lady role for months and now she has ended the speculation by revealing she'll follow in the footsteps of Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand for a fourth remake of the classic movie.
Making the announcement during her summer concert series performance on Good Morning America on Friday (01Jul11), she says, "Clint Eastwood? Can you believe that? I can't believe it still. When I met with him I was just in awe. I'm so, so honoured that he believes in me. And I can't wait to do this film.
"I represent this generation's talent and for me to be the chosen person, as an African American woman, is incredible."
Russell Crowe is in talks to co-star.
