The film, based on the 1937 film starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, centers on a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Warner Bros. has been working on a remake of A Star Is Born for years. Cooper's American Sniper director, Clint Eastwood, has been attached to the project since 2011. At one time, Beyonce was attached to star, but things stalled when she got pregnant and Eastwood moved on to Jersey Boys.

Reports of Gaga's involvement first surfaced when the singer was caught by paparazzi on a motorcycle ride with Cooper. Gaga tested for the studio, which impressed the execs.

Gaga is best known for her pop music career but has been involved in both film and TV projects in recent years. She starred in American Horror Story: Hotel, the anthology FX series by Ryan Murphy. She won the Golden Globe for her work on the show.
