yentl.jpgBarbra Streisand has acquired the rights to a film called Mendel's Dwarf, based on a novel by Simon Mawer about a scientist trying to untangle the convolutions of both the disease that causes Dwarfism, as well as those that plague his romantic life. Streisand will produce and Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent) will star. As for her attraction to the project, She Who Was Yentl says that the film "explores the future of humanity, eugenics, the existence of God as well as the meaning of true love and acceptance."
