Leonardo DiCaprio could join Beyonce in Clint Eastwood's A Star is Born? Why?

Jun. 27, 2011by: Niki Stephens

While on the set of J EDGAR, Clint Eastwood has been talking to Leonardo DiCaprio about starring in his rendition of A STAR IS BORN.

..........

The only thing I can think of are the great words of Michael Scott, "NOOOO! GOD! NO GOD! PLEASE NO! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOO!"

That's really all there is to it. Eastwood is just talking over the project with him so we will see if he actually wants to team up with Beyonce. The remake has been set up over at Warner Bros. for a few years now and there was talk of putting Beyonce with Will Smith.

I'm usually down for whatever Eastwood wants to do as well as DiCaprio. I just don't know how I feel about either of them on this project. Eastwood should be doing more original projects, not a film that's been done to death.

How do you guys feel about it?

Is Eastwood going back on his "I don't make movies for the MTV crowd" stance? If so Beyonce must have sucked his c**k really good for that to happen.

Because she's a terrible actor and an even worse human being. Eastwood is the man, but I think old age is finally getting to him. Because this decision is senile.

Did Beyonce like kill a Schmoe's puppy or something? Why do you guys all hate her?

She can't act
She's married to a rapper
If she did kill one of the Schmoe's puppy it was probably for ritualistic purposes as Avartad below alleges

in the minority

Beyonce gets a lot of heat around here. I think she was good in Dreamgirls and great in Cadillac Records. With Eastwood behind camera and a leading man like DiCaprio this has the potential to be great.

She seriously should not even be allowed INTO a movie theater, much less star in a movie after butchering Etta James' "At Last" in Cadillac Records.

I enjoyed everyone in that movie, then I see her and all I can think is "Hey! Its Beyonce in a bad wig!"

Clint Eastwood has made some amazing films (hell, I even liked Hereafter which puts me in a minority) so why the **** would he want to make this movie? With f^%$&@#g Beyonce? Yeesh!

Beyongay

I could see an edgy version with Clint and Leo if they got rid of that God awful, demon worshiping beeyatch. Plug in somebody else with acting an singing chops and then, maybe... But dear God, not that whore!

I fucking hope not. I don't see it though. DiCaprio if nothing else is probably the best in Hollywood at picking his projects, and jumping on a movie with Beyonce of all people doesn't seem like something he'd do, regardless of who's directing. Plus with Gatsby and Django, I don't see how he'll have time.

I will watch anything with Eastwood or Leo, let alone something with both of them.

Fuck Beyonce

I am so sick of Beyonce. She is not an actress. She's a decent singer (who really just screams on-pitch) but stay away from movies please.

nope

not that i'm against this idea or movie, it's just he's gonna be too busy filming "Django Unchained" and spreading an actor too thin at one time is never a good thing

I don't think he'll end up doing Django. He'll be too busy with Gatsby... and Django has him saying the word "nigger" countless times... not gonna happen.

what does him saying Nigger have anything to do with it. Great Gatsby filming wraps up just before the release of "J. Edgar" and "Django" starts films just after that. Time works out just perfectly to film and promote all his works. This movie would just be an unnecessary distraction
