Iwanyk revealed Warner Bros is moving ahead with A Star is Born and is in negotiations with Russell Crowe to take on a starring role. Iwanyk also confirmed Nick Cassavetes, director of The Notebook, will helm the project, and shooting will begin this fall. However, Iwanyk said it'll be going into production without Beyonce in the lead, as had been rumored.
"We wanted Beyonce, she wanted to do it, but it was hard to figure out her dates and her deal," Iwanyk told me on the black carpet at the Clash of the Titans premiere. "She just came off of a huge world tour and Warners wants to have the movie for next summer, and so we just couldn't work out."
