Dave Chappelle is the latest celebrity to join Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the Warner Bros.’ remake of “A Star Is Born”.
This will also be Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut.
The film is based on the original 1937 movie and centers around a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.
The Cooper version will be the fourth in a series of remakes. “A Star is Born”was remade in 1954, starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976, with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
For this upcoming version, Dave Chappelle will play a character named Noodles, who is the oldest friend of Cooper’s character. In the story, they started out playing together in blues clubs.
Besides Chappelle, Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott are also in for the remake that’s currently being filmed.
“A Star is Born” is scheduled to be released in September, 2018. I can’t wait!
