Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen will costar in the comedy
My Mother's Curse, set to shoot in spring for release in 2012, reports
The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows an inventor and his mother who take a road trip together. He tries to sell his new product and she reunites with a lost love.
The director is Anne Fletcher ( 27 Dresses, The Proposal) and the screenplay is by Dan Fogelman, who wrote the scripts for animated films Cars, Bolt and Tangled.
Streisand is in negotiations to produce, direct and star in a new adaptation of the 1962 musical film Gypsy, based on the 1959 Broadway production about the showbiz mother of Gypsy Rose Lee, reports the New York Post. She is currently in the comedy Little Fockers with Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro.
Rogen, currently starring in The Green Hornet, will next be heard in Paul, a sci-fi comedy about a wise-cracking alien with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Glee's Jane Lynch.
Also, coming in 2011, Rogen will appear in Live With It, a comedy costarring Joseph Gordon-Levitt ( Inception) and Anna Kendrick ( Twilight Saga, Up in the Air) and lend his voice to Kung Fu Panda 2 with Jack Black.
