We love to marvel at Bradley Cooper on the big screen, but now he's stepping BEHIND the camera as a director!
The American Sniper star is in talks to make his directorial debut with a remake of the musical A Star Is Born!
This would mark the third remake of the 1937 movie that followed an alcoholic movie star who helps an aspiring young actress find fame.

The 1954 retelling starred Judy Garland and James Mason. The second 1976 remake starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson and won an Oscar for best original song for Evergreen!
Warner Brothers Studios has been planning on making this remake since 2011. At one point, Beyoncé was set to star, but the project got stalled once she got preggers with Blue Ivy!
So what lucky lady is set to play opposite B-Coop? No names have been released just yet, but we're sure there's no shortage of actresses wanting to play the iconic role — and wanting to play the love interest of the Hollywood hunk!
As far as Cooper's first time directing goes, we're sure the 40-year-old Oscar nominee will be just as good behind the camera as he is in front of it!!!
