Abstract Vision: Barbra Streisand's Barwood Films is developing a film on Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock, based on Jeffrey Potter's 1985 biography, "To a Violent Grave." Robert De Niro is slated to play Pollock, and Streisand will play his wife, artist Lee Krasner. Christopher Cleveland is writing the script, focusing on the couple's "complex, fascinating relationship," according to Cis Corman, president of Barwood. Cleveland will have access to dozens of taped interviews conducted by Potter in the course of writing the book.
