Margot Robbie is in talks to star in a new film based around the popular Mattel doll Barbie which is now setup at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Four years ago came word Mattel was partnering with Sony for a Barbie movie with Amy Schumer set to star with plans to put a contemporary spin on the toy with an emphasis on feminism and identity. She left due to scheduling conflicts with reports then indicating Anne Hathaway would replace her.
The project never made any further progress however and the rights ultimately reverted back to Mattel. Robbie will also produce the Warners version which will obviously not happen until well after Robbie finishes “Birds of Prey” which she’s slated to film early next year.
