Beyonce’s Pregnancy May Push Back ‘A Star Is Born’ Filming

Beyonce debuted her baby bump at last night’s VMAs and while much of the world was shocked at the big reveal and subsequently elated for the diva, the career consequences of the bun in the oven are starting to materialize. Deadline reports that the shooting schedule for the Beyonce-starring remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ could be pushed back in order to accommodate the star’s delicate condition.

Deadline revealed that Warner Bros. was hoping to begin production on the film, to be directed by Clint Eastwood, by February of 2012. With Beyonce expecting, that goal seems highly unrealistic. However, the star’s pregnancy does have an upside in that it gives the studio more time to find a suitable male lead. Leonard DiCaprio was the director’s first choice, but he is not available. Other names that were bandied about to play opposite of Bey were Will Smith and Christian Bale. While both actors would probably have great onscreen chemistry with Beyonce, nothing has been settled or set in stone yet.

This film could be the one that puts her on the map, movie-wise. She is already a musical superstar and her film roles, as Etta James in ‘Cadillac Records’ and as Deena Jones in ‘Dreamgirls,’ were respectable turns, but failed to transform her into a bonafide movie star.

Congrats once again to Bey and hubby Jay-Z as they await the birth of their first child. We found it adorable how Beyonce kept cradling her tummy while posing on the black carpet and while performing. It was maternal instinct, no doubt. She also didn’t miss a step or a beat during her performance, despite her delicate condition.
