BeyoncÃ© Headed for ‘A Star Is Born’?
Beyoncé Knowles conquered Diana Ross in Dreamgirls—is Barbra Streisand next on her list?
Not just yet, despite speculation this morning that the 27-year-old singer and actress had signed on for a remake of A Star Is Born.
The Houston Chronicle spoke with Mindy Peters, wife of Superman producer Jon Peters, at an event last night. The loose-lipped spouse claimed her husband had already signed Mrs. Jay-Z for the part.
Star, originally made in 1954 with Judy Garland then updated with Streisand in 1976, charts the romance of a washed-up rocker and his affair with a promising young singer.
Beyoncé rep Nicole Perez tells Celebuzz, “There is no offer we are aware of at this time.”
No matter. Bey will keep busy with her “I Am Tour,” trotting out worldwide and featuring Sasha Fierce-caliber costumes and production design from fashion guru Thierry Mugler.
From the looks of the aesthetic Sasha’s already set forth, the show won’t disappoint.
