Streisand Set For All About Eve

BARBRA STREISAND will star in a musical version of OSCAR-winning 1950 film ALL ABOUT EVE.

The 61-year-old diva will take on the role of MARGO CHANNING, played by BETTE DAVIS in the original, which scooped six ACADEMY AWARDS.

A host of A-list ladies are being touted to play Margo's double-crossing rival EVE HARRINGTON, including singers BRITNEY SPEARS and CHRISTINA AGUILERA - but JESSICA SIMPSON is reportedly favourite to win the part.

A source says, "Jessica radiates innocence. You wouldn't suspect her of being a slut and a back-stabber."
