Beyonce signs up for A Star Is Born?

Beyonce Knowles has reportedly signed up for the remake of 'A Star Is Born'.

The 34-year-old actress was originally approached about starring in the movie when Clint Eastwood was attached to direct in 2011 and has now agreed to take part in Bradley Cooper's production.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "Beyoncé is a go. Bradley's out to find the rest of the cast, but he may take another acting role [in the meantime]. He's furiously making everything he can."

Beyonce last appeared on the big screen in 2009's 'Obsessed' but it was recently claimed that she has been taking acting lessons.

The singer - who also starred in the movie 'Dreamgirls' - is so serious about making it as an actress that she has been honing her craft over the past year, fitting in classes whenever she can.

A source told Us Weekly: "She wants to land leading roles in movies and has been taking classes in New York and Los Angeles for the past year.

"Bey's looking for an iconic dramatic role."

The publication also reported that Beyonce frequently receives scripts but is waiting for the perfect role.

The insider explained: "She's always being sent scripts to read."
