In January 2011, it was announced that Clint Eastwood was in talks to direct Beyoncé in a third remake of the 1937 film A Star Is Born; however, the project was delayed due to Beyoncé's pregnancy. In April 2012, writer Will Fetters told that the script was very inspired by Kurt Cobain. Talks with Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, and Christian Bale failed to cast them, while Tom Cruise was still in talks. On October 9, 2012, Beyoncé left the project, Johnny Depp also rejected and Bradley Cooper was in talks to star. Eastwood was interested in Esperanza Spalding to play the female role. On March 24, 2015, Warner Bros. announced that Cooper was in final talks to make his directorial debut with the film, and potentially to star with Beyoncé, who was in talks to rejoin. Lady Gaga would star in the film. On August 16, 2016, it was reported that Gaga had been officially attached and the studio had green-lit the project to begin production early 2017. On November 9, 2016, it was reported that Ray Liotta was in talks to join the film in the role of the manager to Gaga's character which later went to Sam Elliott. On March 17, 2017, Elliott was added to the cast, with Andrew Dice Clay entering negotiations to play Lorenzo, the father of Gaga's character. In April 2017, Rafi Gavron, Michael Harney and Rebecca Field joined the cast of the film. Filming of the movie began on April 17, 2017. In May, Dave Chappelle was cast in the film. The filming ended on June 15, 2017. Some extra scenes including Gaga were also filmed on August 9, 2017 in between Gaga’s two performances at The Forum for the Joanne World Tour.
