You had to either not have cable or have been living in an unmarked cave somewhere to miss the attention-grabbing news that Beyoncé Knowles is pregnant. Last night may have found The Hunger Games trying to compete for the spotlight, but finding out that Mr. and Mrs. Carter have an heir on the way has done more than just overloaded the Internets. Warner Bros. will now have to shift around its planned production schedule for Clint Eastwood's A Star is Born remake, as a result of the Queen of Pop's baby bump.
She still remains set to headline the act, and has been since January, when Eastwood picked her to play a young singer who falls in love with a fading rock star. Filming on the project, according to Deadline, was scheduled to begin in February. The insider's report says that Dirty Harry has agreed to delay rolling cameras until Bey-Z's star is born (pun intended) and the singer is back to full strength.
To make matters more interesting, the film lost its leading man, as Eastwood's J. Edgar star Leonardo DiCaprio declined to take on the role of the alcoholic rock ‘n roller. Christian Bale has been named as a possible replacement. This will be the fourth iteration of the film; previous versions starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in 1976, Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954, and Janet Gaynor and Fredric March in 1937.
Do you think Clint Eastwood will choose to direct another film before this one? What are your thoughts on Jay-Z/Beyoncé's impending road to parenthood? Speak your piece below.
