"We are thrilled to provide underwriting for a filmmaker of her vision, stature and accomplishment," said Aldamisa president of international sales and acquistions Nadine de Barros, who is in Berlin at the European Film Market.

Mark Manuel's Kilburn Media will provide financing. Aldamisa co-chairman Sergei Bespalov will produce alongside de Barros.

Streisand seems to have renewed interest in her movie career. Over Christmas, she appeared in The Guilt Trip, her first starring role since The Mirror Has Two Faces.
