The call list for the upcoming Barbie movie in Hollywood has grown to be longer than the Mattel icon's filmography. As soon as it was announced that Margot Robbie would be producing and appearing in the next film. People began to speculate about what a live-action version of the Malibu princess' world would be like.
Robbie shared her thoughts on why Barbie is a character who should be brought to life at the premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” in February 2019. “I think it's a fantastic opportunity to spread some happiness around the world and to serve as an aspirational role model for younger kids,” she told Variety's Marc Malkin about the possibility.
A co-production between Warner Bros., Mattel, and Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment, the picture is directed by Greta Gerwig and is based on a script co-written by the “Little Women” and “Lady Bird” filmmaker with Noah Baumbach. Further information about the film, on the other hand, has been kept under wraps with the plot's specifics remaining a mystery for the time being.
What is the Storyline of the Barbie Film?
At this point, there is no way to know what will happen in the future film, but Robbie has provided fresh information that shows that all of the fans' expectations should be thrown out the window. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress said that the film will provide the audience with ‘the thing you didn't know you wanted until they saw it.
Robbie, who along with her husband Tom Ackerley and close friend Josey McNamara co-owns the production business behind the film, LuckyChap Entertainment, said to the news site that their new Barbie endeavour challenges preconceived notions about the character.
It was the Wolf of Wall Street star who stated that they liked items that were a little “off the beaten path.” It was then that she admitted that she was well aware that many people reading the headlines would think, “Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,”‘ but that her goal was to give fans something completely different—the thing you didn't know [they] needed.”
It is exciting to see what Robbie's production company has in store for audiences, especially after recent releases such as Promising Young Woman, a vengeance fantasy starring Carey Mulligan.
Who Will be in the Cast of Margot Robbie's Upcoming Barbie Film?
As of this writing, Margot Robbie is the only actor that has been confirmed for the role of Barbie. Robbie has become a household name as a result of her work in films such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Robbie has demonstrated her versatility in a slew of films, and while some people may have a preconceived notion of what to expect from her in a live-action Barbie movie, Robbie assures them that she has a few surprises up her sleeve.
A December 2020 interview with The Hollywood Reporter revealed some details about her future character in the Barbie film, including the following: “I'm going to play Barbie,” Robbie revealed “Things that are a little off the beaten path are our favourites.
In the case of Barbie, where the IP and the name itself immediately conjure up the image of, ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I recognise that,' our goal is to be like, ‘Whatever you are thinking, we are going to give you something completely different — the thing you didn't know you wanted.'”
As production on Barbie gets began in the near future, we can expect to hear more about the other amazing performers that will be joining Robbie.
