‘Star’ Remake Has Legs

Will Fetters tapped to write draft of script.

 Warner Bros.’ remake of "A Star Is Born" could finally be moving toward a due date. 

The studio has hired up-and-coming writer Will Fetters to do a draft of the script with the aim of pushing the long-gestating project forward. A number of scribes have written previous drafts, including "Ali" writers Stephen Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson and "Notorious" scribe Reggie Rock Bythewood.

Jon Peters, Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk are producing the new take, with Courtenay Valenti overseeing for Warners. 

"Star" centers on a showbiz ingenue who falls for an established male star, only to see their careers move in opposite directions.
