Margot Robbie has been slaying on the big screen with iconic roles like Harley Quinn, Queen Elizabeth, Tonya Harding, just to name a few. And looks like she’s about to take on life in plastic – as a life-sized Barbie!
Entertainment Tonight reports that the 28-year-old actress will be taking on the starring role in Mattel’s upcoming Barbie movie.
The feature film based on the iconic doll has been in the works for years. It was first announced in 2014. In 2016, Amy Schumer was attached to the project but later had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. In 2017, Variety reports that Anne Hathaway was in talks to take on the role.
The original storyline is supposed to be about an “imperfect doll living in Barbieland,” but ET also reports that Mattel has taken back the rights earlier this year, so it’s unsure whether they will be keeping the same story.
Margot is also set to take on a role behind the scenes of the movie. According to ET, she will be producing the film with her production company, Lucky Chaps.
