Beyonce is rumoured to star in the remake of the 1964 TV Series Gilligan’s Island playing the role of 'Ginger Grant' famously portrayed by Tina Louise. Hmmm...come on Hollywood. Are there no original scripts in LA? Beyonce will star opposite Juno and Superbad actor, Michael Cera as Gilligan. The Picture is set to be released in 2011.

It is also rumoured that Russell Crowe has been cast opposite the voluptuous singer in the remake of A Star is Born. This will be the fourth remake for this film. If first you don't succeed - try, try, try, try again!

The classic film was first made in 1937 with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March in the lead roles, which won an Oscar for Best Writing, Original Story. It was made again in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason who both won Best Actor Golden Globes for their roles.
Then the film was remade yet again in 1976 with Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. The picture won an Oscar for Best Music, Original Song.
Maybe this fourth dubb will bring Mrs. Carter a Best Actress Oscar?
Hmmm...what do you think?

Star is set for a 2012 release and has attached The Notebook director, Nick Cassevettes to direct. Mad Men's gorgeous Jon Hamm and singers Alicia Keys and Rihanna are also said to be attached. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros.
