Barbra Streisand last jumped behind a camera for the Oscar-nominated drama The Mirror Has Two Faces, in which she starred alongside Jeff Bridges and Lauren Bacall. Having been over a decade-and-a-half since that film has hit theaters, the near-egot winner (her Tony was honorary, slacker) is now prepping her next directorial effort and she’s lined up quite a cast.
Showbiz411 reports that Streisand has signed on to direct Skinny and Cat with Oscar winners Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett on board to star. The independent film, written by producer Linda Yellen will follow writer Erskine Caldwell (famous for his novel Tobacco Road) and his epic romance between photojournalist Margaret Bourke White, famous for her war pictures.
It’s rare to get such a perfect pair of actors for such a project, so Streisand is already one step up. The pop culture icon will also be seen alongside Seth Rogen »
