A movie about the world's most popular doll - Barbie has changed its "registration". According to Deadline, after years of trying to movie the story of Mattel's toy, Sony Pictures ceded the Warner Bros. The latter immediately offered the lead role to Margot Robbie.
Sources in the studio claim that the contract with the actress has not yet been signed, but the likelihood of its conclusion is very high, since Robbie and Warner Bros. connect years of fruitful cooperation.
Note that Anne Hathaway was previously listed as the performer of the role of Barbie, but she dropped out of the project for unknown reasons. As for the plot, it was assumed that Barbie would find herself in the human world, since her physical parameters no longer corresponded to the ideas of beauty in the universe where the dolls live. It is not specified whether the previously announced rental schedule will be maintained due to the change of studio. The movie was scheduled to be released on May 8, 2020.
Recall that Barbie was introduced to consumers in 1959 and quickly became one of the most popular and best-selling toys. The Mattel brand is valued at $ 3 billion.
