If the production of the biopic on the famous doll was eventful, the film is finally on track. In 2018, it was Amy Schumer who was chosen by Sony to play Barbie, a choice that displeased Internet users who considered the measurements of the actress unsuitable for the role. In the meantime, Sony lost the rights to the film, recovered by Warner, who has set her sights on Margot Robbie, whose body is closer to beauty standards. The studios have just unveiled a first image of the actress in her Barbie doll outfit and her candy pink car, which we can admire in cinemas on July 21, 2023. Ryan Gosling who will play Ken, while Will Ferrell will take on the role of the boss of a toy company, possibly Matel, who created the Barbie doll. The idyllic world of Barbie was imagined by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, an emblematic couple of independent American cinema, who co-wrote the screenplay. Gerwig is also the director of the film and succeeds Patty Jenkins, first approached to direct the feature film. directed by Emerald Fennell, said: “The world of this beloved doll is fraught with nostalgia. But there are also many ways to tackle it. Often when people hear the word ‘Barbie’, they think : ‘I know what this film is going to be like’, but when they find out that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing, they say to themselves: ‘OK, fine, maybe not, finally.'” Note that Across the Atlantic, the Barbie movie is dated July 21, 2023. However, another blockbuster is scheduled for this date, namely Christopher Nolan’s new film, Oppenheimer. A beautiful summer of 2023 in perspective.
