Margot Robbie is starring in the Barbie live action film... as Barbie
Don't exactly have high hopes for this but sure look.
Margot Robbie has been cast in the Barbie live action film as Barbie - hooray.
The film doesn't have a director, title, or any other cast members yet but seeing as Margot's playing the lead, we're guessing it'll at least be semi-alright and maybe watchable, maybe?
Margot announced the news earlier today via a statement saying that she was absolutely delighted to be playing the iconic doll that promotes such "confidence, curiosity and communication."
"I'm so honoured to take on this role that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children," she said.
"Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president.
“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.”
Amy Schumer was originally tied to the project, but she had to drop out in 2017.
Anne Hathaway was then reportedly in talks to play the iconic doll, but apparently that's not true at all because Margot has now taken over.
