Barbra Streisand has told USA Today that the plans for a film adaptation of GYPSY are still intact.
Before writer and director Arthur Laurents died at age 93 last May, there had been much talk about a movie version of GYPSY starring Streisand as Rose.
"We just have to find our team and a writer," said Streisand. "It's too bad, because I was looking forward to working with Arthur," who directed Streisand in her Broadway debut. "I had seen him a few months before that, and he seemed so strong and healthy."

Streisand has appeared on Broadway in I CAN GET IT FOR YOU WHOLESALE and FUNNY GIRL. Her film work includes FUNNY GIRL, FUNNY LADY, YENTL, and NUTS. She has won numerous awards including the Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy awards. Her first book, "My Passion for Design: A Private Tour" debuted on the NYT Bestseller List. Barbra's 63rd album, "Love Is The Answer" was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), just months after debuting at #1 on the Billboard Charts. This brings the number of gold albums awarded to Barbra to 51. Additionally, Barbra is the recipient of 30 platinum albums and 13 multi-platinum albums. A DVD recording of Barbra Streisand's performance at the Village Vanguard on September 26, 2009 was released last May.
