Babs to sit in director’s chair


For the first time since 1991, Barbra Streisand is returning to the director’s chair.

Aldamisa International, an LA-based sales and financing company said they struck a deal with Streisand to direct some new projects, although no titles have been confirmed as of yet, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“We are thrilled to provide underwriting for a filmmaker of her vision, stature and accomplishment,” said Nadine de Barros, Aldamisa’s president of international sales and acquisitions.

Babs film career has not been particularly good recently. Her latest film, “The Guilt Trip,” barely grossed $37 million, and also happened to score 37% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The last time she directed a film was 1991’s romantic comedy,  “The Mirror Has Two Faces.”
