Barbie maker Mattel and movie studio Warner Bros have announced they’re partnering up to create a live-action Barbie film starring Australian actor Margot Robbie. Margot will also serve as a producer on the project.
“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery. Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president,” Margot explained.
“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.”
The big question now is “Who will play Ken?”
We may be waiting awhile as no release date has been set, but the movie is expected to hit cinemas in 2020.
