Three months ago, we reported that toy maker Mattel has teamed up with Warner Bros to create a Barbie adventure movie. Then there were rumors that Margot Robbie would play the most popular doll on the planet, which were confirmed today. The Variety portal managed to find out that the actress actually signed a contract for this role.|
“Our project is a great start to our partnership with Mattel Films,, said WB spokesman Toby Emmerick. -And Margot is the perfect candidate for the position of producer and actress who can take a fresh look at the Barbie story and tell it to a modern audience. ”
“Playing with Barbie develops self-confidence and curiosity throughout the child's journey to self-discovery. Over the 60 years of the brand's existence, the doll has given children the opportunity to imagine themselves as both a princess and a president, ”said Robbie.-It is a great honor for me to play this role and make a film that, in my opinion, will have a huge positive impact on children and viewers around the world".
The Barbie tape will be the first film from the new Mattel Films studio, headed by producer Robbie Brenner. His track records include Dallas Buyers Club, Escape Plan and Snow White: Revenge of the Dwarfs.
Robbie will start filming Birds of Prey next month, where she will return to the role of Harley Quinn, and was recently seen on the big screens in the historical film The Two Queens.
