Hollywood veteran actress Barbra Streisand is ready to get back to direction and is set
to helm her first movie project in 16 years called Skinny and Cat.
The 70-year-old actress has tapped Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett as the lead couple in her upcoming film project
about the love story between late author Erskine Caldwell and Margaret Bourke White, reported Ace Showbiz.
Skinny and Cat, which is expected to kick off filming in January 2013, will mark Streisand's first directing stint
since 1996's The Mirror Has Two Faces. Her publicist, however, noted that the new film has not secured the green
light yet because of financial issue.
Besides preparing for Skinny and Cat, Streisand is keeping herself busy with some other projects.
She has been attached to the big screen take on Broadway musical Gypsy to be written by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.
She will also appear in The Guilt Trip alongside Seth Rogen.
