And the world makes sense again.

First, it was happening. Then, things went awry. Then, people thought it might happen. Then … radio silence. For almost an ENTIRE YEAR, we have been waiting with bated breath to know if Barbra Streisand would indeed revive the role of Momma Rose in the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim musical Gypsy for the big screen. We prayed to the musical gods in the heavens above, pleading that Barbra would make this movie, which would be her first musical since Yentil almost 30 years ago.

Today, according to the fine people over at Universal Studios, our prayers have been answer. Gypsy IS happening … and all we can say is:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are no words; just exclamation points!

According to the press release that went out this morning, Babs will produce the remake alongside Joel Silver and Julian Fellowes, an Academy Award-winning writer, will take on the daunting task of adapting the screenplay.

Sounds like PERFECTION! Barbara back on the big screen … and SINGING!

Now, who to play June! Any suggestions????

P.S. - She is going to make Rosalind Russell so proud! We just know it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! … and we broke the one key.

    OMG..Babs is turning 70 next month! I love her, but isn't she kind of too old for Gypsy?

    I hope they do a good job of it, sometimes when they make musicals into movies they do not do well (example - Evita - same darn song throughout the whole movie although the acting was OK).

    I guess I'm unclear as to why Bette Midler's amazing portrayal of Rose wasn't sufficient enough…

    This is a great swan song for Barbra.. as a leading lady. If the moving works, there is no way she can stop from winning the Oscar. As Barbra is an older Mama Rose… they will need to cast a little older for her girls, however Lea Michelle is a perfect choice. Her and Barbra singing on screen together.. wow, that would be great.

    And how about Meryl Streep for the role of Herbie ?
    We all know Meryl loves a chalange, and with her vast knowledge of dialect, and acting skills, I'M sure she could pull the roll off

    Barbra looks younger than her years. She looks much younger than photos of the real mama Rose. She'll be swell! She'll be great!

    Re: Esin Emko – It seems that your life has already faded away. Bitter, mean, unhappy, and not too bright. Barbra's star will never dim. Deal with it!
