'A Star Is Born' to have world premiere at Venice Film Festival
Venice: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's "A Star Is Born" is all set for a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
The film, which marks the directorial debut of Cooper, will be screened out-of-competition at the 75th edition of the festival, the organisers said in a statement.
The premiere screening will be held on August 31 in the Palazzo del Cinema on the Lido.
The musical romantic drama film is a remake of the 1937 film of the same name. Cooper has also penned the screenplay alongside Will Fetters and Eric Roth.
Also starring Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott, the story follows a hard-drinking country musician (Cooper) who discovers and falls in love with a young singer (Gaga).
Both the actors have performed original songs for the film, which also features collaboration with artistes like Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson.
The 75th Venice International Film Festival will take place from August 29 to September 8.
