A drunken Russell Crowe romances Beyonce?

02.04.2010

The Warner Bros. remake of A STAR IS BORN (that seems like it has been in the works since around when the Barbra Streisand version came out) is heating up and word is that Russell Crowe is in talks to star alongside Beyonce Knowles. The LA Times is reporting that Warner Bros. has set their sights on Crowe to star as the alcoholic musician who mentors (and really mentors if you know what I mean...) an up-and-coming singer. They had previously talked to Robert Downey, Jr. and Sean Penn about the role but Crowe sparked to the project and his enthusiasm has breathed new life into the film.

Nick Cassavetes (THE NOTEBOOK) is in talks to direct the film from a script by a number of different writers (I'm guessing should Crowe come aboard, he'd bring with him some rewrites of his own). Beyonce last starred in the truly awful revenge thriller OBSESSED and STAR IS BORN would be her first big starring role in a Oscar-caliber type film. (I realize she was in DREAMGIRLS but she was far from the star of that movie.) While she's been attached to the project for quite some time, Crowe's interest in the first has apparently resparked her fire to remake the film.

Crowe can be seen next in ROBIN HOOD and recently wrapped filming on Paul Haggis' next film THE NEXT THREE DAYS.

Extra Tidbit: The original STAR IS BORN was released in 1937.

Ummm, no. No, no, and no. I had no idea Russell Crowe would ever sink this low. Beyonce is the epitome of laugh-out-loud HORRIBLE at acting. She hasn't made enough dough from music and everything else? I don't believe she's an artist, I believe she is a money-devouring fame whore. She will stop at nothing to blow up her own head even further.

Beyonce is a great singer. With that said, her acting is terrible. I have not seen one film where her acting was up to par. Espcially acting against Russell Crowe? Good luck, Beyonce.

I can see Russell Crowe doing a great job in this movie, but Beyonce? Gimme a break! Cast someone who can act, or Crowe will blow her off the screen!

Beyonce is still trying for that Oscar gold eh? Well keep trying baby doll. I think someone should tell her that playing a singer yet again is not going to exactly fetch her awards gold.
