Sunset Boulevard

Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Barbra Streisand are fighting to play Sunset Boulevard diva Norma Desmond on the big screen, according to Hollywood reports. The ladies are reportedly on a shortlist being considered by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who composed the music for his version of the 1950 film classic.

London’s Daily Telegraph reports all three stars have been in discussions about taking on the role of Desmond, played famously by Gloria Swanson.

Close played the role onstage in Los Angeles and originated the role on Broadway, while Streisand has recorded versions of Sunset Boulevard ballads As If We Never Said Goodbye and With One Look.

Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman are reportedly favored for the role of screenwriter Joe Gillis in the musical remake.

Who do you think the role should go to?

None of the above!

Christine Ebersole, anyone???

And, maybe, Raul Esparza?

Nix that -- Hugh Jackman is hot. I pick him!
