Citing "scheduling conflicts", R&B superstar Beyonce has officially released a statement that she's no longer able to work with legendary actor Clint Eastwood in the remake of "A Star Is Born". A strong supporter of President Barack Obama, we're thinking that 'empty chair' stunt pulled at this years Republican National Convention by Eastwood may have had something to do with her decision. Or maybe not.In Bey's official released statement, she stated the reason for not being able to star in the film was due to "scheduling conflicts":

"I was looking forward to the production of A Star Is Born and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood. For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together.”

Word in the industry is that Clint is looking for another actress to star in the remake. Singer Esperanza Spalding's name is being thrown around for the role.
