Barbra Streisand Will Finally Play Mama Rose in 'Gypsy' Movie

Barbra Streisand Will Finally Play Mama Rose in 'Gypsy' Movie

Barbra Streisand is nearing the end of negotiations to play the iconic role of Mama Rose in a new movie version of the classic musical Gypsy.

The 73-year-old actress has been attached to the project for many years and at one point she was said to be directing the film.

Barbra will produce alongside Joel Silver and the movie is set to be made with STX Entertainment. Oscar-winner Barry Levinson will direct while Richard LaGravenese will write the script.

“It’s Barbra Streisand doing one more, if not the last, movie musical of her career,” STX chairman Adam Fogelson told Variety. He says he is excited by “the type of talent that is clamoring to work with her on one of the most famous and satisfying musicals ever.”

    I suppose if the story is tweeked and altered a bit, Striesand could play Mama Rose. Rumor has it Lady GaGa and John Travolta are on board as well…

    Barbra has wanted to do this film for some time. She has never disappointed and I seriously doubt she will this time. This movie will prove to be exceptional. Just like Barbra!
