Mar­got Rob­bie will bring Bar­bie to life in a live­ac­tion film.

Mat­tel and Warner Bros. Pictures an­nounced this week that Rob­bie will star as the iconic doll in the fran­chise’s first-ever live-ac­tion film. The 28-yearold “I, Tonya” ac­tress will also co-pro­duce the film un­der her Luck­yChap En­ter­tain­ment ban­ner.

The Bar­bie film is the first an­nounced deal to come out of toy­maker’s newly-es­tab­lished Mat­tel Films. The Bar­bie doll de­buted at a New York toy fair in 1959.

Rob­bie said in a state­ment that she be­lieves the film will have a “tremen­dously pos­i­tive im­pact on chil­dren and au­di­ences world­wide.” The Os­car-nom­i­nated ac­tress has also starred in “Mary Queen of Scots,” and “Sui­cide Squad.”

The film’s ti­tle and re­lease date have not been re­vealed.
