First, Liberace. Next…A Barbra Streisand Biopic? ” Hello, Gorgeous!”THEBACKLOT.COMYes, there is a Barbra Streisand movie in the early stages of development that would detail an important period in Babs’ life just as she was becoming a megastar.
The project, based on William J. Mann’s 2012 unauthorized biography, Hello, Gorgeous: Becoming Barbra Streisand, is in the hands of writer/producer team David A. Lee and Daniel Vaillancourt, who recently optioned the motion picture rights to the book. Lee and Vaillancourt, spouses who are also co-vice chairs of the Gay & Lesbian Committee of the Writers Guild of America West, filled me in on the details of the project, the closeted man who was vital to her success and casting thoughts on who could step into Barbra’s shoes.
