Barbra Streisand is slated to direct a love story called Skinny and Cat about writer Erskine Caldwell and photojournalist Margaret Bourke White who were the only foreign journalists in the Soviet Union when the German Army invaded in 1941.
The buzz is that Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett are attached to play the couple. No word yet on who is writing the script. Streisand hopes to start production in January 2013, but she's currently having trouble getting financing together for the drama.
Welcome back Barbra.
