    Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper interviewed for EW's Fall

    Bradley Cooper was warned. Friends discouraged the American Sniper star from choosing A Star Is Born as his directorial debut.
    Aside from it being one of a handful of takes on the tragic romance, the project had stalled for years in Hollywood, attracting directors and stars like Clint Eastwood and Beyoncé, respectively. “I had a lot of people tell me, ‘Please don’t do this’ — people I respect and who care about me,” says Cooper, 43, on a hot afternoon in the Hollywood Hills while being interviewed for this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly.

    “I just knew this could be the end of everything if it doesn’t work. It’s like, ‘Who’s this guy making the fourth [version] of this movie? Shut up already.’ But I still could not deny what I felt deep down, and that’s why it was this movie. It sort of ignited something in me.”
    The actor admits this is a story that’s been building in him since his childhood. “I used to write songs — that’s like the first time I’ve ever said that,” reveals Cooper.
    “I used to always hear verses and songs in my head as a kid. And I wrote a couple down. I’m talking from like [age] 8 to like 19. So I knew that there was something that I hadn’t pursued that maybe I could actualize one day in a movie.”
    Cooper’s Born, in theaters Oct. 5, charts the tumultuous relationship between alcoholic rock star Jackson Maine and burgeoning singer-songwriter Ally, played by pop icon Lady Gaga, 32. As Jackson falls deeper into addiction, Ally blazes a path toward superstardom. Much in the way Jackson helps lift Ally, Cooper has directed Gaga to her most accomplished and dramatic performance to date. “It just has changed me,” says Gaga of Born.

    “Watching Bradley work was phenomenal and then having him believe in me — it gave me more ammunition to believe in myself and I just feel so blessed to have had that experience.”
    Cooper, who also co-wrote the script with Eric Roth and Will Fetters, has reshaped the story into an exhilarating, emotional rock epic with electric performance scenes shot at real festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury.
    “I never wanted to be in the crowd,” says Cooper of his decision to have the cameras on stage with the actors. “I always wanted the audience to feel what it would be like if you were the person performing.”

    Born features a stirring original score (collaborators include producer Mark Ronson, singer Jason Isbell, and Willie Nelson’s son Lukas), a career-best performance from the actor, and — yes — a career-redefining role for Gaga.
    The film, which will world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, has already generated awards talk for its two leads. “I think the reason it’s so outstanding is because of the deal they made at the beginning,” explains producer Bill Gerber (Gran Torino). “She said, ‘People are gonna think you’re a rock star.’ And he said, ‘People are gonna think you’re an actress.’ They both accomplished what they said they would do.”
    The pair’s electricity on and off screen is undeniable as is their bond. “I think the biggest thing I learned is that sky’s the limit if you find a companion artistically, and you have a project,” says Cooper of working with Gaga.
    “There is no dreaming too big. What people can do together is so much more powerful than what they can do by themselves.” Adds Gaga, “I think what I learned from Bradley [is] it’s okay to be relentlessly sure of your vision, and to go after it with every fiber of your being, and to never stop white gloving what you’re making. Sometimes, as an artist, I second-guess myself when I go, ‘Am I pulling the thread? Am I unraveling the whole blanket now? Do I need to stop?’ It’s changed the way that I work today.”
    For much more with Gaga and Cooper, including their friendship and the day Barbra Streisand came to set, pick up the Fall Movie Preview issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday. Watch the first interview below.

    Lukas Nelson talks about Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper's 'A Star Is Born' and its music

    In a recent exclusive interview on GRAMMYs website, Lukas Nelson had some things to say about 'A Star Is Born'.
    "It was great, man. Bradley [Cooper] and [Lady] Gaga, I mean Bradley being a great musician and Gaga being a great actress, I'm really looking forward to seeing people's reactions to the movie and seeing how they like it. I think they really will. I think they'll like the music, it's all original that we wrote, and Promise Of The Real is in it. And there's music from Dave Cobb and Jason Isbell. Mark Ronson produced a bunch of stuff. And then Bradley's just so fantastic. I mean he put his heart and soul into it. So I'm really looking forward to when that comes out. "

    Sources tell Deadline that Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born is headed to the Venice Film Festival

    EXCLUSIVE: Multiple sources tell Deadline that Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born is headed to the Venice Film Festival. Although no one is officially confirming it, we have been told the festival will screen the Warner Bros movie out of competition as a world premiere on Friday, August 31.
    It should certainly turn out to be one of the hotter, more anticipated titles when Venice formally announces its schedule next Wednesday — a day after we get the first wave of films from the Toronto Film Festival which has its press conference Tuesday. A Star Is Born is also expected to be listed among TIFF’s North American premieres
    The first screening of the film, which marks Cooper’s directorial debut and in which he co-stars with Lady Gaga, was actually held by Warner Bros for exhibitors Wednesday at the state-of-the-art Dolby Screening Room at Hollywood and Vine. Reaction from top exhibs was through the roof, at least those I heard from. One major theater owner predicted Oscar nominations across the board including Picture, Director, Actor and Actress, and big box office when it opens October 5. Another from a large chain said the film was “fantastic” and noted the sound in the concert scenes made you feel as if you were actually there live. He also predicted Oscar buzz for both leads and was particularly impressed by Cooper’s singing. Cooper appeared in person at the screening to introduce it.
    Buzz has been steadily building  for the film. Even Barbra Streisand, who of course starred in the 1976 version, has offered praise for it since seeing “parts of it” that Cooper showed her. “I’m really proud of him — he did a great job on this film,” she told me when we spoke last month. “I think it’s a story that works. It’s interesting to see my version, it’s interesting to see Judy Garland’s (1954) version, you know even go back to 1937 (Janet Gaynor’s version). The story works every time.” As the nascent awards season takes shape, it feels like Warners is going to be in it big-time with this rebirth that was produced in association with Live Nation Productions and MGM.
    As reported yesterday, the upcoming edition of Venice that runs August 29-September 8 is shaping up to be another with a heavy major studio presence for Oscar contenders, with Universal having grabbed the opening-night slot for Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong tale First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as the legendary astronaut who was first to walk on the moon in 1969.

    Boys Noize says he wrote a hit with Lady Gaga

    Boys Noize says he wrote a hit with Lady Gaga. Speaking to Boiler Room, the German electronic music producer and DJ, real name Alexander Ridha, praised the “Million Reasons” singer as one of the most down-to-earth artists he has ever worked with and revealed that they recorded a song for one of Gaga’s upcoming projects.
    “[Lady Gaga] is so cool,” he said. “She is definitely one of the coolest artists I met that is ridiculously famous, but so down to the ground. She asked me, ‘You know [UK techno DJ] Surgeon?’ and I was like, ‘Are you f—ing with me?’, and she was like ‘Yeah, he’s my friend, he opened some of my shows.'”
    He continued: “She’s down to techno and what’s crazy is that she got into modular stuff too. I brought my modular system—and she spilled water on it, by the way—but it broke the ice and then we wrote a f—ing hit. But now she’s into modular, she bought a system, and we used that on some of her songs.”
    Lady Gaga is currently busy working on at least three upcoming albums: a follow up to the 2014 jazz collection Cheek to Cheek with Tony Bennett, the soundtrack for her debut film A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper, and her fifth solo studio album, which is rumored to be released in 2019.
