We have seen many top Hollywood stars deciding to move from being in front of the camera, to showing their talents behind it, with a lot of actors and actresses deciding to try their hand at directing in recent years. While some of these stars have shown that they are just as good at directing as they are at acting, there are others who have failed to impress as a director.
Well now it seems that yet another big Hollywood superstar is considering making their directorial debut in the near future, as it has been claimed that Bradley Cooper is looking to test himself behind the camera. It has been reported that Bradley Cooper will make his directorial debut for the planned remake of the movie A Star is Born, which has been in development for a while now.
The A Star is Born remake was initially set to get off the ground back in 2011, with the legendary Clint Eastwood taking on the directing duties, while singer Beyonce was due to play the lead role in the project. Unfortunately, Beyonce fell pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy and Clint decided to turn his attention to the Jersey Boys movie, leaving A Star is Born lingering in development.
A Star is Born has already been brought to life on three separate occasions and it is believed that, if Bradley Cooper agrees to direct the project, it will be based on the 1937 version, which managed to pick up to Oscars. It will be interesting to see what sort of director Bradley Cooper will be and whether he has the directing talent to match his acting skills.
If Bradley Cooper was to take on the job of directing A Star is Born, we are sure he could as Clint Eastwood for some tips, should he need them.
