It’s Official: Margot Robbie Will Play Barbie in a New Live-Action Film

The beautiful Margot Robbie will portray on the big screen the most glamorous of all toys, the iconic doll Barbie.

This is the end of a long, tortuous road for Mattel, which has been trying to make a Barbie film since 2014. Previously, Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway were attached to the role.

It’s not known whether Robbie’s version of the film will use the same script as Schumer’s, which Variety said had more of an adult comedy tone.

“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery.”

Robbie said.

“Margot is the ideal producer and actress to bring Barbie to life on screen in a fresh and relevant way for today’s audiences.”

Said Toby Emmerich of Warner Bros.
