    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.

    SOPHIE and Lady Gaga are working on new music

    It was speculated recently online, but now we have confirmation that this rumor is indeed true! Lady Gaga and Scottish singer, songwriter, producer and DJ, SOPHIE, are working together on new music for Gaga's upcoming sixth studio album. 
    Fans met the Scottish artist, known for her unique electronic synthesized and hyperkinetic pop production, after a show recently and filmed while asking if she was working with Lady Gaga on her next album. She simply responded "yes", adding that she works on alot of music and if it comes out then it will be cool, but she can "never tell" when or if the music will be released, and that Gaga is a cool person. But fingers crossed this music sees the light of day!
    SOPHIE joins fellow collaborators DJWS, BloodPop and Boys Noize who have all been hard at work recently in the studio making new music with Lady Gaga. There is no confirmation regarding when the album will be released, but a 2019 release seems most likely.

    Lady Gaga for Variety: this year is "the most pivotal year of my career"

    Lady Gaga is five-foot two inches tall and still growing.
    “I’m actually five-foot three and three quarters,” she clarified at Saturday’s MTV Movie and TV Awards.
    The New York-born pop magnet, whose “Gaga: Five Foot Two” won best music documentary at the MTV event, has been largely out of the public eye since ending her Joanne World Tour in January, which grossed over $95 million in ticket sales.
    Sitting backstage after the MTV taping, draped in black, she tells Variety she’s been holed up in the studio, readying for what could be the most pivotal year of her career, which will see her first major movie role in “A Star Is Born” opposite Bradley Cooper, a two-year Las Vegas residency that kicks off in December, and oh yeah, she’s working on a new album.
    “I’m just always making music, I’ve always been that way and I think you see in ‘Five Foot Two’ that I’m a studio rat,” the 32 year-old says.
    Netflix and Live Nation’s cinéma vérité-style doc, released in September, featured Gaga in her most vulnerable state yet, from rehearsing a high-wire performance at the Super Bowl to more down to earth moments like cooking at home, sitting poolside, topless, skewering “bulls-t” men and having a meltdown on the set of “American Horror Story.”
    “All my insecurities are gone, I don’t feel insecure about who am I as a woman,” she says in the doc.
    She tells Variety, “I made a decision really early on that I wanted Chris (Moukarbel, the film’s director) to have full access to me and my life. I just blocked the cameras out so they could capture the realities of my life.”
    Moukarbel’s raw look at the global superstar also chronicled her battle with fibromyalgia and chronic pain, stemming from a hip injury she suffered three years ago that eventually cut her European tour short. She hopes by revealing the invisible illness it helps raise awareness and tackle ignorance about the disease.
    “To anyone that doesn’t believe in fibromyalgia: I dare you to spend five minutes in my body on a day when I’m in pain, and then try and say it again,” she said of her condition.
    Moukarbel, who has directed a handful of docs, including HBO’s “Banksy Does New York,” said his intention was never to make a movie about fame. “I think it happens to be a documentary about an artist who is famous. She has an opportunity to do a lot of things that other people haven’t. At the same time it also comes with all of these other conditions that she has to work against to make her art.”
    “I wouldn’t call it a compromise,” Gaga says of her immersive lifestyle, “It’s more of a special gift called passion. And I’m just so passionate and what keeps me going is being inside the vortex of my art and creating and making things that are not only meaningful to me but hopefully to other people.“
    “When I’m with Tony Bennett, and we hang out, we always joke that we never work a day. Because we love what we do.”
