Beyonce's pregnancy reveal might delay Clint Eastwood's A Star is Born

Aug. 29, 2011by:

Because the MTV VMAs are still desperately trying to create headlines after all these years, they somehow talked Beyonce into revealing that she was pregnant on stage thanks to a very visible belly.

Well that's great news for when my kids are teenagers and want to listen to a hot new talented artist with a musical gene pool, but for now it's probably going to delay the movie she was supposed to star in, Clint Eastwood's A STAR IS BORN.

The film follows a young woman who dreams of stardom and is helped along her way by a washed up former star. Now if you're thinking that washed up star was going to be Eastwood himself, think again.

Leonardo DiCaprio was said to be filling that role, but now he's apparently passed on the project. Being considered now is supposedly Christian Bale, but like Leo, he would seem to be pretty young for the proposed part as well.

In any case, this new joyous news might have Eastwood thinking about doing a different project first, and putting STAR on hold for a while.

This sort of movie has been remade so many times already. Both under this name as well as under dozens of other names over the decades. Eastwood should focus on something a little more original. Nobody's waiting for this shit to be remade once again.

Or maybe Eastwood can just replace her with an actress who can, you know... act. Sorry--I just can't stand Beyonce's music or her acting, though there's certainly worse of both.

No idea if the film would turn out to be good even without Beyonce in it, but frankly Clint Eastwood is one of my absolute favorite living directors and he's too good for Beyonce. Same goes for Bale and DiCaprio.

She's more on Uwe Boll's level of talent (okay, sorry, that was just mean).

Why the red replies? This is GREAT news. I couldn't think of a project I'd LESS like to see either Eastwood, DiCaprio, OR Bale pursue. Let's everyone move on.

Good News!

I am glad Leo passed on this and hope Bale does the same. They're both too GOOD for this movie.
