Lady Gaga! “A Star Is Born!” Bradley Cooper Directing This Classic Hollywood Story!

Bradley Cooper Directs Lady Gaga In The Classic Hollywood Story – “A Star Is Born!”

Now THIS is a film I can’t wait to see!

There have been a number of public appearances by Lady Gaga recently, performing for Bradley Cooper’s cameras, as he directs and co-stars in the latest remake of the classic Hollywood Story, “A Star Is Born!”

This classic Hollywood tale is the story of a successful Actor in Hollywood who discovers and falls in love with a fresh young talent – and destroys his own career at the same time…

This is Cooper’s directorial debut – and a flashy starring role for Lady Gaga, who has been terrific on television in a variety of roles…

“A Star Is Born” – Again!

This will be the fourth time this story has been told – I’ll get to the previous ones in a moment – and filming begins after years of rumored pairings like Will Smith and Beyonce – to have been directed by Clint Eastwood…here is the latest filming from the Glastonbury Festival…

Bradley Cooper
Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton, United Kingdom – 23 Jun 2017
US actor Bradley Cooper is filmed making a re-make of the movie ‘A Star is Born’ during the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts 2017 at Worthy Farm, near Pilton, Somerset, Britain, 23 June 2017. The outdoor festival runs from 21 to 25 June.

As it was reported in the press:

“The Oscar nominee was there to film a scene for A Star Is Born, the Warner Bros remake due he’s doing with Lady Gaga that’s out in September 2018. Cooper strapped on an electric guitar and “performed” — no definitive word about that — ahead of a set by outlaw country hero Kris Kristofferson (who starred in the 1976 version of the movie). As cameras rolled, one operated without explanation by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Cooper got his shot.”

How funny, Lars Ulrich on camera!

Cooper also filmed Gaga at Coachella earlier this summer….so the film will be filled with great musical performances by the duo!

I can’t wait for this film, because the previous three films were all classics in their own way!

The first film was released in the 30’s, and Judy Garland and James Mason were phenomenal in the version from the 50’s…

The last version was filmed in 1976 – with Kris Kristofferson playing the burnt out rocker who discovers Barbra Streisand singing in a small club….

Streisand won an Oscar that year for Best Song – “Evergreen”, which she wrote with legendary singer/Actor Paul Williams…

Here is some very personal trivia: my neighbor, Songwriter Carol Connors, lost to “Evergreen” that year – what song did she write? Well, she wrote the lyrics to “The Theme From Rocky – Gonna Fly Now!”

If you want to read more about the previous three versions of the film, here is a story that look at them – and all of the classic “Hollywood” melodramas!

  1. This is an interesting duet. Good for Bradley–I like him more and more each year. I hope it’s successful. I loved both versions with Judy and Barbara. We shall see if the two can pull off the chemistry.

  2. Like Sarah, I am a fan of the Judy Garland version. However, this is one idea that can be adapted over time, due to changing tastes in music. It might be interesting to see if Gaga can carry off something other than elaborate pop videos too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Ooh, I don’t know about this! I love Streisand and Kristofferson but not their version. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are very talented but the only one for me is Judy, Judy, Judy! I’d give it a go but probably wait for the DVD.
