Hot Rumor: Barbra's Next Movie?

From Playlist.com:

Barbra Streisand & Seth Rogen Offered Roles In The Comedy 'My Mother's Curse'

Yes, it's an offer story so it's nothing close to gospel yet, but it is a potentially interesting duo.

In the latest issue of Production Weekly, it's revealed that Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen have been offered roles in the comedy "My Mother's Curse." The film is the rather heartwarming-sounding tale of an inventor who embarks on a road trip with his mother with a secret plan to reunite her with a long lost love.

Here's the synopsis from PW:

The young inventor of a new organic cleaning product invites his mother on a cross-country road trip as he tries to sell his product to marketing outlets. His ulterior motive is to reunite her with a man she loved when she was young, and her motive is to help him overcome his ‘curse’ of non-commitment in relationships, for which she blames herself.

Streisand and Rogen are being offered the roles of mother and son, Joyce and Andy Brewster. The film has a script from Dan Fogelman ("Cars," "Crazy, Stupid, Love") and, less promisingly, has Anne Fletcher ("27 Dresses," "The Proposal") in the director's chair.

Again, these are just offers and both, one or neither of them may sign on. But the teaming of Streisand and Rogen could potentially be kind of great, so we'll be watching to see how this plays out.
