Beyoncé is Too Expensive for Bradley Cooper

So Bradley Cooper can’t afford Beyoncé. According to Page Six, the American Sniper actor was looking to direct a remake of A Star is Born. He had his eyes set on the R&B powerhouse for the leading role. But negotiations fell through because she wanted too much money and Warner Bros. balked at her asking price. Funny thing is this isn’t the first time Beyoncé’s been mentioned when it came to this movie. Apparently Clint Eastwood was trying to remake the film back in 2011 and he wanted Queen B too. But like a lot of projects in Hollywood, this one never got off the ground. But Bradley picked it up after the success of American Sniper. If he does get the film going, it’ll mark Bradley’s directorial debut.
