Set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018, “A Star is Born” is a musical romantic drama film starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. The third remake of the 1937 movie of the same name, it marks Cooper’s directorial debut.
“Watching Bradley work was phenomenal,” Gaga told Entertainment Weekly. “And then having him believe in me, it gave me more ammunition to believe in myself and I just feel so blessed to have had that experience.”
In “A Star is Born,” Cooper and Gaga play the lead characters Jackson Maine and Ally, respectively. Jackson is a hard-drinking country musician who discovers Ally, a young singer, and eventually falls in love with her.
“A Star is Born” also stars Sam Elliott as Jackson and Ally’s manager and Andrew Dice Clay as Ally’s father named Lorenzo. Dave Chappelle is also in the cast as Jackson’s friend named Noodles.
Before directing “A Star is Born,” Cooper voiced Rocket in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” His most recent live-action movie was the 2016 drama comedy crime movie “War Dogs.”
As an actor, Cooper received three Academy Award nominations. He was nominated as Best Actor for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2013 and for “American Sniper” in 2015 and as Best Supporting Actor for “American Hustle” in 2014. He was also one of the producers of “American Sniper,” which received an Oscar nomination as Best Picture.
Gaga also has one Academy Award nomination. She shared the Best Original Song nomination with Diane Warren for the soundtrack of “The Hunting Ground” in 2016.
After “A Star is Born,” Gaga will be busy with her Las Vegas residency. She recently announced that the first of her 27 performances at the Park Theater will be on December 28, 2018.
“We’re creating a show unlike anything I’ve done before,” Gaga said in a statement obtained by CBS News. “It will be a celebration of all that is unique and different within us. The challenges of bravery can be overcome with creativity and courage that is grown out of adversity, love and music.”
