Beyonce Knowles quits 'A Star Is Born'?
Knowles, who was on board to take on the female lead, dropped out of the Clint Eastwood-directed remake due to scheduling issues, reported Aceshowbiz.
Studio insiders say Eastwood is now eying jazz star Esperanza Spalding to fill in the female lead role.
In the remake of the 1976 musical film, Beyonce was set to tackle the character which was originally played by Barbra Streisand.
Warner Bros Pictures had earlier postponed the production, which was expected to begin in February this year, due to Beyonce's pregnancy.
"A Star Is Born" remake promises an updated version of a romantic relationship between an alcoholic star on his way out and a young female artist on the rise.
