Clint Eastwood has reportedly been confirmed to direct Beyoncé in a big screen remake of A Star Is Born.

Deadline reveals that Eastwood will also produce the feature along with Billy Gerber, Basil Iwanyk and Jon Peters, who was behind the 1976 version starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

Beyoncé will take on the starring role of up-and-coming singer Esther Hoffman, though no male lead has yet been cast.

A Star Is Born is due to begin filming this autumn with a release date set for 2012.
