Warner Bros. held a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival with the cast of A Star is Born, and Lady Gaga explained Bradley Cooper’s filmmaking process as this will be his directorial debut.
About the film:
In this new take on the tragic love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
A Star is Born stars Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, and Sam Elliott. Cooper worked on the screenplay with Eric Rooth and Will Fetters.
All the original music performed by Gaga is the film was recorded live. Gaga wrote the songs with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell, and Mark Ronson.
A Star is Born hits theaters October 5.
