When you think sexy, you think Barbra Streisand. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, or massive headaches and Barbra Streisand. So it’s no surprise that she might star in a new big screen adaptation of the famous musical Gypsy. It’s about the life story of famou burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee, before the term was co-opted and destroyed by Cher.

Though Gypsy writer Arthur Laurents┬árecently said he won’t allow another film version to go forward, cause the last one in 1962 took a big dump on his story, reports say otherwise. Apparently Universal is mounting a new version with Streisand as the awful stage mom who sings “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” along with Joel Silver as producer. The purported deal gives Laurents and lyricist Stephen Sondheim a big say in casting, as well as deciding on a screenwriter and director. (The Playlist)
