We’ve completed a comprehensive analysis of the scripts from all four A Star Is Born versions in order to closely examine which elements of a movie change when it is remade and which withstand the test of time (hint: alcohol). By implementing the power of AI to compare thousands of features of these scripts, studios have the data they need to make more informed decisions about a remake’s potential before an investment is made.
