The Ultimate Diva is Gonna Be the Ultimate Stage Mama: Streisand as Rose, that is!
Streisand is producing with Joel Silver.
Steisand will play Mama Rose in the movie -- her first musical since "Yentl" in 1983 and her first starring role since "The Mirror Has Two Faces" in 1996. Streisand, who won the best actress Oscar for the 1968 "Funny Girl," most recently played Roz Fokker in 2010's "Little Fokkers" and also has a Road Trip movie coming out soon where she co-stars with Seth Rogen as his mother (yes, and they go on a Road Trip...) Oy.
