Will Lady Gaga Play Louise in Barbra Streisand’s New Gypsy Film?

Will Lady Gaga Play Louise in Barbra Streisand’s New Gypsy Film?
Lady Gaga
Barbra Streisand is 'thinking of casting Lady Gaga' as the lead in 'Gypsy.'

Barbra Streisand’s long-gestating new film adaptation of Gypsy is still heating up, with news now breaking that the divine Miss Streisand is considering adding a mega music star to her dream cast list.

“She told me she’s thinking of casting Lady Gaga as the lead in her remake of Gypsy,” reports Time Magazine’s Joel Stein in an article about Streisand’s concert tour and new comedy flick The Guilt Trip.

As Streisand herself would step into the shoes of Mama Rose, that would mean that Gaga would ostensibly play Louise to Streisand’s overbearing stage mother.

The film has long been in the works, but received a healthy bump last March when Universal announced that the project would move forward with Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes helming the screenplay of the classic stage musical. Should Gaga enter the Gypsy fray, she’ll join other past Louise portrayers, including Natalie Wood, Sandra Church, Cynthia Gibb, Tammy Blanchard and Laura Benanti (who won a Tony for the role in 2008).
