A Star Is Born has been made three times already. Once in 1937 Janet Gaynor starred as Esther Blodgett, once in 1954 and 1976 where Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand each reprised the role. The role is obviously a pretty big deal when such famous names have played it before. So the fact that Lady Gaga is the latest person to play Esther just makes sense.
Bradley Cooper is set to direct the film and star in it alongside Gaga. Cooper will play Norman Maine, the man who helps Esther rise to stardom as his own career plummets. With a cast like this already set, the film is sure to be a success!
