Eastwood Hopes to Pair DiCaprio With Beyoncé for A Star Is Born

Yes, Clint Eastwood still plans to direct Beyoncé in his remake of A Star Is Born. What's more, he's got a male lead in mind: Leonardo DiCaprio, who stars in his current project, J. Edgar. Deadline reports that Eastwood has been in talks with DiCaprio to come onboard, though all principals are rather busy at the moment: As Eastwood finishes J. Edgar, Beyoncé is busy promoting her new album, 4, and DiCaprio is preparing to play the villain in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained. Rumors had flown that Eastwood might pair Beyoncé with Will Smith for Star, but is DiCaprio a better bet? [Deadline]
