News   Will Barbra Streisand Direct Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett in New Film? Academy Award winner Barbra Streisand is planning to direct her screenplay for "Skinny and Cat," a love story about Erskine Caldwell and Margaret Bourke White, according to Showbiz411.

It is reported that Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett will respectively star as the late American author and photojournalist. Linda Yellen will produce.

An official announcement of the project has not been made, though Streisand did discuss it with the Los Angeles Times in recent weeks. "It's about a woman ahead of her time. It's just a fascinating story that is very relevant to today," Streisand told the L.A. Times.
