Bradley Cooper is making his directorial debut with the musical feature.

Ray Liotta is in talks to join Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born.

The Goodfellas actor also will be joining Bradley Cooper in the musical remake, which will act as the American Sniper actor's directorial debut.

A Star Is Born centers on a young singer who, with the help of an already established but fading star, finds success.

Judy Garland and James Mason headlined the 1954 feature, while the 1976 version of the film starred Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand, who earned an Oscar nod for best original song.

Jon Peters, Bill Gerber and Basil Iwanyk are set to produce alongside Cooper.

Warner Bros. on Wednesday dated the feature for a Sept. 28, 2018, release.

Liotta (Field of Dreams) recently wrapped filming on Matthew Coppola's Alone, in which he stars opposite Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones). Liotta is repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
