While she had small roles in Meet The Focker and Little Fockers and will be seen in the upcoming The Guilt Trip, Barbra Streisand hasn’t directed a movie since 1996′s The Mirror Has Two Faces (indeed she’s only helmed three films since her 1983 helming debut, Yentl). Now Showbiz411 suggests she’s thinking of heading back behind the camera for a new romance.
The film is an epic love story about writer Erskine Caldwell and photojournalist Margaret Bourke White, with a script by Linda Yellen. Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett are apparently attached to star in the main roles. Bourke White was one of the first female photojournalist, while Caldwell wrote Southern-set novels like Tobacco Road.
Streisand is also continuing to develop a remake of the musical Gypsy, with her starring as Mama Rose, although it isn’t known how close to production that might be.
