Gypsy began its Broadway run in 1959 with Ethel Merman in the lead. Since then, the story — based on the memoirs of the famous striptease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee — has spawned numerous reincarnations, including the 1962 film starring Rosalind Russell and Natalie Wood, four Broadway revivals, as well as a made-for-television movie.

Barbara Streisand was originally involved with the project in 2016 with director Barry Levinson at STX. That is until the studio had second thoughts and sent the entire production back to the assembly line. Now, with Sherman-Palladino reviving the project, according to the report, Melissa McCarthy, who worked with Sherman-Palladino on Gilmore Girls, may be circling to star. Though, no official cast has been announced.
