The production of Barbie was laborious, but the biopic finally seems to be taking shape. Let’s recap the project. If Amy Schumer was once approached to embody the famous doll, it is finally Margot Robbie who will take on the role and who will also produce the film with her box LuckyChap Entertainment, which continues to sign projects as cool as they are daring, such as Promising Young Woman, directed by Emerald Fennell and released in 2020. Ryan Gosling will have the difficult task of playing Barbie’s iconic boyfriend. The Hollywood playboy reportedly backed out of the ambitious project at first due to his busy schedule, but as pre-production dragged on and the studio insisted, the actor eventually found a place in her diary and was recently spotted with platinum blonde hair. Often mocked for his frozen facial expressions, Ryan Gosling seems to be the ideal actor to slip into the skin of the smooth character with perfect measurements. We learn today that Will Ferrell joins the project in the role of the boss of a toy company, possibly Matel, who created the Barbie doll. Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera and Emma Mackey, often compared to Margot Robbie for her physique, have also just been added to the cast. The biopic will also be co-written by lovers of independent cinema Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, the latter having succeeded Patty Jenkins behind the camera. We still don’t know anything about the plot of the film. At the time, it was planned, according to the Hollywood Reporter, that this live action Sony would begin in the idyllic world of Barbie, where the heroine fails to fit in. Excluded, she then sets off to discover the real world, on a kind of initiatory journey where she becomes aware of the importance of being unique. dream, she had been insulted by Internet users who considered her too fat. After considering Anne Hathaway in the title role, the producers then set their sights on Margot Robbie, whose body is closer to beauty standards. In the meantime, Sony lost the film rights, which were recovered by Warner. It will therefore be necessary to wait a little longer to know the bias of Warner.
