Filming has begun on reimagining of the musical A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and introducing Stefani Germanotta, known as Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (American Sniper, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook) is helming the film, marking his directorial debut.
Cooper plays Jackson Maine, a country music star who is on the brink of decline when he discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). As the two begin a passionate love affair, Jack coaxes Ally into the spotlight, catapulting her to stardom. But as Ally’s career quickly eclipses his own, Jack finds it increasingly hard to handle his fading glory.
In addition to playing Ally, Germanotta, who earned her Oscar nod for the song Til It Happens to You from The Hunting Ground, has composed and will perform original songs in the film. The main cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott.
A Star is Born is being filmed entirely in Southern California and will be released in 2018.
