LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are starring in a remake of "A Star is Born."
Warner Bros. says the film will mark the singer-actress' first leading role in a movie and the directorial debut of the "American Sniper" actor-producer. Gaga will compose and perform new songs for the musical drama.
The "Bad Romance" and "Applause" singer recently appeared in the fifth season of the FX series "American Horror Story." Her other acting credits include the Robert Rodriguez films "Machete Kills" and "Sin City: A Dame to Die For."
The original "A Star Is Born" was released in 1937 and featured Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. The drama centered on a young actress' relationship with an established Hollywood star. It was remade as a musical in 1954 and 1976.
