While Warner Bros Pictures is bringing A Star is Born, the Damien Chazelle directorial will be released by Universal Pictures International India, read a statement.

Cooper has expanded his creative horizons and will be making his directorial debut with A Star Is Born. He is also co-producing the project through his 22 and Green production company along with Jon Peters, Bill Gerber and Basil Iwanyk.

The project is based on the eponymous 1937 film, which was directed by William Wellmam.

In this new take on the tragic love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Maine coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Maine fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

A Star is Born also features Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.

First Man, on the other hand, is based on the struggle and sacrifices made by the the first man to land on moon Neil Armstrong and his family. Gosling portrays Armstrong in the film, based on James R. Hansen's book. The actor is joined by noted actress Claire Foy, who plays Armstrong's wife Janet.

Chazelle said, "There are many other stories that tell about the moon landing, but I wanted to know what it felt like in all the years leading up to that first footstep on the moon-as well as what it felt like to be that man who put the first footprint on the moon.

"Only a handful of people in history have ever gone to the moon, and Neil Armstrong was first. Even more importantly, it's an emotional story of a guy who's trying to be a father and husband while undergoing this cosmic journey."

First Man premiered as the opening film at the prestigious 75th Venice Film Festival and received rave reviews from viewers and critics alike.
