In January, the Golden Globe-nominee was cast in Clint Eastwood’s telling of the story of a young singer who falls in love with a spiraling, fading rock star. Filming on the pic according to Deadline, was due to begin in February. That won’t happen, the site reports, quoting an insider’s relaying that Eastwood has agreed to delay rolling until the baby is delivered and the singer is back to full strength.
The film still does not have a leading man, as Eastwood’s “J. Edgar” star Leonardo DiCaprio declined to take on the role of the alcoholic musician.
This will be the fourth version of the film; previously, versions were produced starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson 1976, Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954 and Janet Gaynor and Fredric March in 1937.
