Director Clint Eastwood’s remake of A Star Is Born has hit yet another snag.  Production was initially pushed back when star Beyonce Knowles became pregnant, and then Eastwood was having trouble casting his male lead.  The director approached a number of top shelf talent including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper, but failed to land a commitment.  Now Eastwood has lost his female lead, as Knowles has dropped out of the project altogether due to scheduling issues.

Hit the jump for more details including who Eastwood is eyeing for Knowles’ replacement.
