Bradley Cooper is currently in talks with Warner Bros to make his feature directing debut on the remake of A Star Is Born, according to Deadline.

Cooper will also take a crack at the script with Will Fetters, who wrote the most recent draft, and is considering starring in the film with the hopes Beyonce will join him, Deadline reported.

A Star is Born follows young woman with dreams of becoming a star who meets a self-destructive Hollywood icon. The original 1937 film was directed by William Wellman and starred Fredric March and Janet Gaynor. Subsequent remakes were made at Warner Bros in 1954 with director George Cukor and stars Judy Garland and James Mason, and 1976 with Frank Pierson directing Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand.

Cooper is fresh off his Oscar nomination for American Sniper, and currently performing The Elephant Man in the play’s London transfer from Broadway.
