Singer-turned-actress Beyonce Knowles has recently been roped to play the female lead in the movie A Star Is Born, but the production of director Clint Eastwood's upcoming project might postponed due to her pregnancy. The speculation about the delay in shooting started spreading after Beyonce announced at the 2011 MTV VMAs that she is expecting her first baby with Jay-Z, whom she married in April 2008.
According to reports, Warner Bros. Pictures wants to begin filming as early as February 2012, but Beyonce Knowles' first pregnancy might force the the studio to push the production ahead. Clint Eastwood is yet to finalise the male lead for the film. If the remake project is postponed, the director will have more time to look for a suitable male co-star for the wife of Jay-Z.
A Star Is Born is an updated version of a romantic relationship between an alcoholic star on his way out and a young female artist on the rise. Clint Eastwood has been considering several A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale and Will Smith for male lead, but no deal has yet to be sealed.
However, Beyonce Knowles first revealed the news about being pregnant with her first child while attending the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards at Nokia Theaters, L.A. on Sunday, August 28. Later, MTV tweeted, "OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!"
