Lady Gaga stars opposite Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) in a remake of the iconic musical drama A Star is Born. The announcement was made by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Warner Bros. Pictures. The film is also directed by Cooper, who will be making his directorial debut.

Lady Gaga’s (Stefanie Germanotta is her real name) role in “A Star is Born” will mark her first lead in a feature film. In addition, she will compose new songs for the film, which she will also perform.

Cooper plays Jackson Maine, a country music star who is on the brink of decline when he discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). As the two begin a passionate love affair, Jack coaxes Ally into the spotlight, catapulting her to stardom. But as Ally’s career quickly eclipses his own, Jack finds it increasingly hard to handle his fading glory.

The story has been filmed a few times – 1937 with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March – 1954 with Judy Garland – 1976 with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand.

“A Star is Born” is being produced by Billy Gerber and Jon Peters; together with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips, under their Joint Effort Productions banner. Basil Iwanyk is serving as executive producer.
