Gaga will compose and perform new songs for the musical drama.

The Bad Romance and Applause singer recently appeared in the fifth season of the FX series American Horror Story. Her other acting credits include the Robert Rodriguez films Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Die For.

The original A Star Is Born was released in 1937 and featured Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. The drama centred on the relationship between a young actress and an established Hollywood star.

It was remade as a musical in 1954 and 1976.
