Warner Bros. and Mattel production will shoot sometime in early 2020.
This is a dream come true! Anyone will get onboard with a fun movie or a good story, especially when they adapt a well known property. But Warner Bros. went the extra mile taking someone from the indie scene with a reputation as an artist. Then brought along her partner to co-write it.
The brilliant thing about this movie is that it’s a blockbuster mansion deal that doubles as an arthouse. We all know that in addition to being a babe, Margot Robbie is a brilliant actress set to win an Oscar someday. Diddo for Gosling, who in addition to being a sex-symbol is also a great movie star that can act. He might even prove a better option than my original pick (the other more sardonic and self-aware Ryan).
I wouldn’t put it past these artists to put a spin on how society looks at these figures as celebrities and non-persons. Might Margot make Barbie a model who lives in a hype house with Gosling as an empty and plastic Social Media star? It’s an idea. But I bet real life partners Greta and Noah who can be equally funny (Lady Bird, Frances Ha, Madagascar 3) and serious behind the camera might come up with something better.
