Barbra Streisand is set to team up with THE STATION AGENT star PETER DINKLAGE to tell the true story of DR BEN LAMBERT, who dedicated his life to unravel the genetic secrets of dwarfism.

Streisand has bought the rights to SIMON MAWER's book MENDEL'S DWARF and will co-produce the movie.

She says, "It uniquely combined elements of science, fantasy and the brave new world of genetic research. It explores the future of humanity."
