Beyonce Priced Out of A Star is Born


For years Beyonce has been attached to the re-make of A Star is Born.

First with Clint Eastwood [click here if you missed that] and then with Bradley Cooper [click here if you missed that].

Queen B is no longer attached...

Insiders tell Page Six Beyonce priced herself out of the part.
Warner Bros. was negotiating with “American Sniper” star Cooper to direct and star in the remake of the 1950s Judy Garland musical. BeyoncĂ© was being lined up to play the lead, a young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by an aging icon.
But one Hollywood source tells Page Six, “BeyoncĂ© wanted too much money, and Warner Bros. balked at her price. The production budget was also said to be an issue with the studio, so the project has fallen apart.”

I would love to see her play in a action movie.

I was lead to believe that she and Jayz had their own Production Company, and if that be the case they can Remake the Movie on their own , if they want too.

Jigga and Bey on some get cash quick scheme all these celebs be fronting about t heir worth - I feel like at this stage they don't have the luxury to relax they owe too much money and got their hands in too many projects that aren't paying off - I think they HAVE to work HARD at this point to keep up the lifestyle... and in my opinion that sucks - what's the point of being a celebrity if you end up being an indentured servant

Beyonce in a star is born? She's going to have to take serious intensive acting classes.

Anonymous said...

Yes, at 11:48am; She's going to need an intense acting coach as well as read one book a week to stay sharp along with diction and elocution lessons. She can do it if she really tries, but it'll be tough. She should take it seriously and go for it. If Madonna's non-singing self can do "Evita" then after enough coaching, Beyonce should be able to do "Twelfth Night" if she works hard enough.

I can see making the transition but she needs to be careful. She can feel the seats in theaters but I want her to be known for her craft and not her box office numbers.

Bey deserves an Oscar but I want her to get playing non stereotypes.
Not playing a maid,slave or getting naked like Halle.

Black women should not have to degrade themselves to get an award.

Beyonce is one our last great role models.

@ 10:26 am. it seems that way. another tour after touring for almost four years? (mrs carter/on the run) you're a billionare but still touring like a mad woman? i understand she may like to perform, but ain't that much love in the world especially if i was a billionare. lol. something is not right. i'm sure the flop of Tidal ain't helped financial matters. I think Jay invested heavily into it so that has put him in the red. and he still owes hundreds of millions to livenation.

they used it as an excuse not to hire her

Well you can't win them all. Beyonce came out swinging when she dropped her first solo album almost 13 years ago and she hasn't stopped since!!

She was offered 4 cents to play the role of a MINOR STARLET... in what would have been the COMEDY-HORROR SHOW entitled:

BEYONCE: A MINOR STARLET IS BORN

Beyonce wanted 5 cents, but the producers thought it was too much for a CERTIFIED MINOR STARLET.

After she did Dream girls I don't ever want to see her on the big screen again. Please STOP...
