Most of the non-music career news about Barbra Streisand in the past little while has been about her taking a role in the brewing big screen remake of "Gypsy" set to be penned by "Downton Abbey" writer Julian Fellowes, but it looks like Babs has a little trick up her sleeve, and something that will come first.

A smash hit in its native France, an arthouse sensation on this side of the ocean, and nominated for 9 Cesar awards, it's not a shock that The Weinstein Company (who distributed the original stateside) are eager to remake "Intouchables" for what they hope is an awards season contender. "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig and Colin Firth are already set to team up on the movie -- titled "Untouchable" en anglais -- about a wealthy quadriplegic who finds a new reason to live thanks to a plucky urban caretaker. That latter role is the one that landed Omar Sy a Best Actor Cesar over favored nominee Jean Dujardin for "The Artist." And now, a trio of actors are hoping they can duplicate that success in English.

Colin Firth is set to play famed English playwright Noel Coward, in the Willy Holtzman-penned project, “Mad Dogs And Englishmen,” about Coward’s eventful two week-stay at The Desert Inn in Las Vegas in 1995. Although there’s still no director attached, this seems like a great role for the actor to sink his teeth in, as Coward was famous for what Time called “a sense of personal style, a combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise.” So we’ll be definitely be looking forward to this project in the future.

While "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" didn't bring home any Oscar gold in February, Tomas Alfredson's expertly calibrated spy thriller proved that the genre can deliver just as much thrills with dialogue, obversation and a deeply intelligent approach, than movies packed with gadgets, martinis, babes and tuxedos. The picture finally earned Gary Oldman his long overdue first Oscar nomination, and brought together an ensemble of Britain's finest acting talents the likes of which we may not ever see again.

You're probably asking yourself, "Who asked for a third "Bridget Jones" movie? I don't know anyone who saw the second!" Well, you're probably a filthy, dirty American. "Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason" overcame it's clunky title to gross $222 million outside of America, a whopping 85% of its global total. It's taken awhile for the wheels to begin turning on a third film, but "Bridget Jones' Baby" overcame scheduling setbacks and the defection of director Paul Feig ("Bridesmaids") to set a coming start date under Peter Cattaneo ("The Full Monty"). However, several people behind the scenes were whispering that the film would be shutdown entirely in the face of script problems.

Far from it. Last year "The Devil's Knot" started heading into production from Canadian director Atom Egoyan ("Exotica," "Chloe," "The Sweet Hereafter") with Reese Witherspoon to star. Now another Academy Award winner is coming on board.
