Set for an Oct. 5 theatrical release in the United States, the musical marks Cooper's directorial debut. He also co-wrote and produced the movie, which features Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott. Although she had a role in the TV series American Horror Story, A Star is Born will be Gaga's first big-screen, acting job.
"In this new take on the powerful love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers -- and falls in love with -- struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons," a synopsis said.
The movie features original songs Cooper and Gaga performed live on-camera.
