HOLLYWOOD, March 10 (UPI) -- Tom Cruise
's dance card may soon include a staring role in the upcoming remake of "A Star is Born," Hollywood sources told Daily Variety.
Cruise has been getting good buzz among studio executives for his work as a rock star in the upcoming musical "Rock of Ages" and is considering joining the cast of the Clint Eastwood production opposite leading lady Beyonce.
Variety said no negotiations have taken place and Cruise has two other projects lined up before he could devote his attention to "A Star is Born."
Warner Bros. and New Line are apparently not banking entirely on Cruise for the picture. They have also considered Leonardo DiCaprio for the role as well as Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman.
