Eastwood allegedly wants Cooper as the leading man for the movie, according to Variety.
The director's version of "A Star is Born" will be a remake of the 1937 film. The movie is about an aging rocker who falls in love with a young, rising star. Screenwriter Will Fetters based the aging rocker character on Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, imagining how he would have fared in the industry 20 years later, had he survived.
The Press Association reports that Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale and Will Smith have all turned down the "Star Is Born" role. Tom Cruise was the latest to be linked to the part.
"The Hangover" actor may be contemplating the role in Eastwood's Warner Bros. remake, but, according to Variety, "there is no deal in place and Cooper has a very busy schedule."
