Beyonce Knowles Carter announced this week that she will not be able to do Clint Eastwoods re-make of A Star Is Born. The first question I asked when I witnessed Clint Eastwoods RNC Chair speech, trashing President Obama was, ” I wonder if Beyonce will still do his movie, being that she is one of Michelle and Barracks biggest supporters? ” Well, question answered.
“I was looking forward to the production of A Star Is Born and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood,” the Grammy winner said in a statement to E! News. “For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together.”.
Sources say it’s due to her heavily packed schedule for this year. And she would be stretching herself far too think taking on such a major role.
She’s working on her new album, tending to her 10-month-old daughter, and has plenty of performances and another tour rumored to be lined up. .Many people do believe that Clints support of Mitt Romney has somthing to do with it. I agree with them….
Esperanza Spaulding is now in talks to fill the role, but there’s also no male lead lined up. According to Variety:
Studio insiders said that with Knowles now off the project, there has been interest, at least from Eastwood’s end, in jazz musician Esperanza Spaulding. Sources emphasized, though, that until the male lead is locked, no discussions or offers will be out to the female lead.
Good luck Mr. Eastwood. It sounds like it may be time to let this re-make go??
