OMG! The story of Barbra Streisand on film?

It may be closer than you think if writer/producers David A. Lee and Daniel Vaillancourt get their way!

Based on William J. Mann's unauthorized biography Hello Gorgeous: Becoming Barbra Streisand, the film would cover Babs' early years as an unknown trying to make it as an actress.

So basically, "A Star Is Born star is born?" It sounds great! Now all they need is a leading lady! Lee says:

"Obviously, casting the starring role is crucial–and difficult. We went to Lea Michele first, because it’s such an obvious and commercial choice to us."

Yes!! Perfect!

Unfortunately, Lea says she isn't interested in doing more TV right now. But that doesn't mean anyone is giving up! Lee says:

"The actress who plays Barbra will be nominated for awards. It could be real event television. Could HBO be interested in the wake of the Liberace biopic? We hope so."

See, Lea? That wouldn't be TV. It's HBO! Not to mention it's BARBRA! Hello! Dolly!

    Let her make her choices. It's probably important to her if Barbra endorses this project and it doesn't sound like she does. So there's that.

    The chances of lea doing a Barbra project that's not even supported by Barbra are very slim…also a TV movie?

    I think they should use Micheles voice and Jennifer Aniston should play Babs (she looks like a younger Barbra)

    If Lea plays Barbra, I'm going to kill myself…… I hope to God (Barbra), that this doesn't become a reality.

    It fits. They're both ugly and have huge noses.

    NO NEVER! Lea can't sing!! this would be an insult to Barbra and many of her fans! Lea looks nothing like her and sings NOTHING like her.She wishes she was her but she'll never live up to the talent of Streisand!!!

    Re: babs – Thank you Babs! Lea Michele is no Streisand and never will be! Listen to her butchering of "Funny Girl" songs on Glee. She has a thin voice compared to the accousitc wonder that is Streisand.
    I'm waiting for Streisand to publish her autobiography. If you're listening Barbra - please write it!!!
