Barbra's Last Laugh: "The Normal Heart" will be made-for-cable

Streisand wanted to make it for HBO in the mid-90s because she couldn't get a studio and distributor on board. Larry Kramer REFUSED because HBO wouldn't pay him his demanded $1 million for the script. When Larry Kramer sold the rights to Ryan Murphy, he publicly chastised Barbra for not paying for the movie out of her own pocket and gloated that Ryan Murphy would be making the theatrical adaptation he had always wanted. Today it was announced that Ryan Murphy's adaptation will be made for HBO with a budget of $15 million.
