Beyonce to Star in Clint Eastwood's 'A Star is Born' Remake.

Beyonce Knowles is headed back to the silver screen. The 29-year-old superstar will play the leading role in A Star is Born, a film directed and produced by Oscar winner Clint Eastwood, Deadline reports.

The movie will be a musical, scheduled to begin production in the fall. While a male lead has yet to be cast, names like Will Smith, Diddy, Eddie Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Jon Hamm have been floating around.

This will be Hollywood's fourth version of A Star Is Born, the last being the 1976 version starring Barbara Streisand. The basic premise is a singer turned superstar, a role Beyonce has played before in the 2006 film Dreamgirls.
