Newsflash – Steisand to Star in “GYPSY” Remake?

Having gotten the blessing of Arthur Laurents, who wrote the book and directed the story of an infamous stage mother on numerous occasions, Barbara Streisand is now in talks to star as the infamous Mama Rose. She would be following in the foot steps of Rosalind Russell and Bette Midler who have played Rose in the film and on television respectively. Ethel Merman originated the role on stage;  who was later played by such stage veterans as Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly, Bernadette Peters and Patti LuPone. It is still a little unceratin at this point if Streisand will just be performing in the film. Rumors are that she might also direct and produce the feature, but those rumors have been disputed.
