Actor Margot Robbie has been roped in to play the role of Barbie in an upcoming live-action film.
The Suicide Squad actor is also set to co-produce the movie, alongside Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara. Robbie said, “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.”
The film was originally being developed under a different studio, with actorcomedian Amy Schumer being tapped to star in it.
The plot of the film reportedly follows a character who gets kicked out of the perfect Barbieland because she doesn’t quite fit the mould. After she’s exiled, she sets out on a journey to the real world and eventually discovers that being unique is an asset.
