A source told pagesix.com that Beyonce has agreed to join Cooper in the leading role previously played on screen by Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand.
"Beyoncé is a go," said the source of Cooper's remake of "A Star Is Born", which originated in 1937, was remade in 1954 and again in 1976.
"A Star Is Born" narrates a story of how a young aspirant actress and singer finds love in an actor, only to be marred by alcoholism and ambition.
The source added that Cooper is still looking out for the the rest of the cast.
"He's out to find the rest of the cast, but he may take another acting role (in the meantime). He's furiously making everything he can," the source said.
It's likely that the "American Sniper" star will do another acting role before going into production on his remake, which will be ready by end of next year or 2017.
