Fans Of 'A Star Is Born' Will Love Bradley Cooper's New Netflix Movie

Fans Of 'A Star Is Born' Will Love Bradley Cooper's New Netflix Movie

It's been over a year since the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga box office smash A Star Is Born left us emotionally shattered and questioning whether a relationship is really worth it unless someone is prepared to write a hit song about you.

The good news for fans of the Oscar-winning musical is that another film fronted by Cooper is on the horizon.

According to reports in Deadline and IndieWire, Cooper will write direct, star in and produce the upcoming movie - much like A Star Is Born.

There's an epic musical storyline, too. The biographical drama will follow the life of genius American composer and musician Leonard Bernstein.

The project - which is coming to Netflix after being developed by Paramount - has the backing of megawatt producers Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Joker director Todd Phillips.

That's some triple threat.

As yet no title for the movie has been announced but we do know that the script spans an incredible 30 years.

The story will explore the colourful life of the prolific composer, known for his flamboyant style of conducting, and explore his marriage to Chilean stage and screen star Felicia Montealegre.

Bernstein and Montealegre tied the knot in 1951, though the classical composer was widely believed to be gay.

The pair had three children together - Nina, Jamie and Alexander - who have worked closely with Cooper as consultants on the movie.

After nearly three decades of marriage, Bernstein left Montealegre to be with a male partner. He later returned to the marriage following Montealegre diagnosis with cancer and the pair were together until she died in 1978.

Romance. Music. The internal struggle of a genius. A lot of A Star Is Born boxes are being ticked here, folks.

With the project in the earliest stages of production, it could be a while before we have more concrete details.

Deadline report: "The Bernstein film is expected to begin production early next year.

"Netflix will give it a significant theatrical release before the film premieres on its streaming site."

The entertainment platform followed the same process for Scorsese's mob epic The Irishman and Marriage Story starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver.

Apparently, Scorsese was originally set to direct the Bernstein biopic, but stepped back to concentrate on The Irishman.

The project is a long time in the making. Cooper has been busy developing over the last two years with the help of the Bernstein estate.

We smell another Cooper passion project in the making - and we couldn't be happier.
