It looks as though Barbra Streisand may have found a star for her upcoming Gypsy remake, a project that has been in the works for several years now. According to CinemaBlend, Streisand is highly considering casting Lady Gaga as the lead character Louise.
From Joel Stein’s recent Time Magazine column on the singer:
Other than the temperature controlling and backseat driving, Barbra was a really fun, mellow driving buddy. She told me about her cousin Lowell, I told her what a mullet is, she told me she’s thinking of casting Lady Gaga as the lead in her remake of Gypsy, and I told her I was really, really cold.
Though we have not been given any more information, we’ve learned that Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes has reportedly been enlisted to write the script.
