The internationally acclaimed artist had previously been repped by UTA, United Talent Agency. The change follows the recent news that Universal Pictures has passed on producing the film remake of the classic musical Gypsy, starring Streisand as the infamous stage mother Rose.

Universal, which had been working with Streisand on the project, formally put Gypsy in turnaround, meaning it has decided not to develop the film any further. Streisand reportedly had been working with producer Joel Silver on the project, and they are now free to shop their Gypsy around to other studios.

CAA will represent Streisand in all areas.

Streisand was the first American woman to direct, write, produce and star in a feature-length motion picture, "Yentl" (1983), which was shot by David Watkin, BSC. She also directed, produced and starred in "The Prince of Tides" (1991), shot by Stephen Goldblatt, ASC, BSC, and "The Mirror Has Two Faces" (1996), shot by Andrzej Bartkowiak, ASC, and Dante Spinotti, ASC, AIC. She is the only artist to win Academy, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, DGA, Peabody and Golden Globe awards, as well as France's Légion d'honneur, the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award and Kennedy Center Honors.
