“Lady Gaga is not attached and will not appear in the project,” her publicist said. “Reports of Gaga starring in the project are false.”
According to a source, Lady Gaga had never even heard of the movie.
Gaga’s supposed casting made international headlines, after Warwick held a press conference in Cannes on Friday afternoon and told reporters that the “Born This Way” singer had committed to the film. Journalists were even shown a promotional poster with Gaga’s name on it.
Warwick said the character Gaga would be playing would be “her nemesis.” “She stole my songs,” Warwick said of Black. “I’m not a happy camper about that.”
The Cannes event on Friday was publicized by Rogers and Cowan, who released a press release with the casting news.
Warwick’s rep wasn’t immediately available for comment.
