R&B star Beyoncé Knowles made her first screen debut in "Austin Powers in Goldmember" 11 years ago, but she has come a long way since then. She played one of the leads in the critically acclaimed movie "Dream Girls" in 2006 and 5 years later, she is ready to take on the lead role all by herself!
She is slated to follow in the footsteps of likes such as Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand when she plays the lead in the fourth "A Star Is Born" remake! Russell Crowe is currently in talks to co-star and the movie will be directed by none other than Clint Eastwood.
Beyoncé confirmed the news yesterday during a performance on Good Morning America, saying, "Clint Eastwood? Can you believe that? I can’t believe it still. When I met with him I was just in awe. I’m so, so honored that he believes in me. And I can’t wait to do this film.
I represent this generation’s talent and for me to be the chosen person, as an African American woman, is incredible.”
We wish her all the luck in the world and really cannot wait to see both her performance and Clint Eastwood tackling a genre so different from his usual niche!
