Barbra Streisand, despite being an iconic film actress hasn’t picked up a script to direct in years. It was back in 1996 when Streisand made The Prince of Tides (1996) but she will soon be back on that chair for a royal film about Catherine The Great. The subject is interesting and rare having served on the Blacklist for such a monumental delay in filming: it covers a young Catherine coming to terms with her newfound power post-1762. Her husband’s assassination led her to take over the crown’s responsibility – Catherine found herself in an abusive marriage that she was suddenly freed from following the assassination and used that royal opportunity to transform the Russian Empire.
