Looks like Beyonce is teaming up with one of Hollywood's most iconic directors -- five-time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood .  Deadline.com is reporting that Bey will star in the fourth remake of A Star Is Born , which will be directed and produced by Eastwood.

The first A Star Is Born was in 1937 and won two Oscars.  The second A Star Is Born was in 1954, starring Judy Garland , nominated for five Oscars with Garland famously losing to Grace Kelly - this was the same year Dorothy Dandridge was nominated for Carmen Jones . The 1976 version starred Barbra Streisand and won an Oscar for Best Original Song.

The story is about a struggling singer who gets involved with a former star that helps her break into the music business. There are no details on how close the script will resemble the previous versions, but the film will be a musical.

Working with Clint Eastwood is what every actor dreams of but people will surely give this role the side-eye considering it's another role where Beyonce is playing a singer, which she has done in three other films.

Are you excited to see Beyonce in A Star Is Born ?
