The latest rumor swirling around the remake of A Star Is Born is that the male lead may go to Gerard Butler. Nick Cassavetes is confirmed to direct, but previously Russell Crowe had been buzzed about with Beyonce for the leads. Russell Crowe does have more of that older man vibe, but man it would be great to have Gerry sing again in a movie, something he hasn't done since Phantom of the Opera. I'd also like to see him stretch himself dramatically. Action flicks and Rom Coms are all very well, but where's the guy who excelled in Dear Frankie?
