Margot Robbie will change of scene abruptly. After playing the insane Harley Quinn, the actress enlists to star in the live-action Barbie.

Award-winning Australian actress Margot Robbie, who will also serve as director through her firm LuckyChap Entertainment.

Margot Robbie is one of the female stars of the moment and her ability has made her very required, so she is close to starring in another great film, at least in name.

Barbie, the most famous doll in history will have a movie in person.

Two factors accompany the launch of said production. The first one refers to the boom that toy-inspired feature films will have in the future. Apart from this, Lily Collins will be in one based on Polly Pocket and Vin Diesel in that of Rock’em Sock’em Robots.

The second fact is that the role that Robbie will fill was not easy to decide. The protagonist was initially the artist Amy Schumer, but Mattel again obtained the rights to the production from Warner Bros. and there everything changed.

When this transfer occurred, Anne Hathaway was chosen for the position, although when the licenses returned to WB, Margot was the one.

Given all this, the celebrity referred to the great challenge that this creation represents. Thus, due to the difficulty it includes, he praised the work of the director Greta Gerwig. For many years, the live-action Barbie movie has passed through the ranks of different production houses. Initially, the project was adopted by Universal, although a short time later it chose to put aside said production and the adaptation of the Mattel star passed into the hands of Sony.

At the moment details of the plot or the cast are unknown, but, from Robbie’s words, we understand that there will be a lot of self-conscious criticism, a dose of feminism and a look as respectful as it is provocative to the figure of Barbie. Or, well, we hope so.


Well, yes, Margot Robbie is not enough to be Barbie, Harley Quinn and Lady Marian, but she is also going to become the successor to Captain Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ saga. In June 2020 it was announced that a spin-off project of the franchise was underway, with the intention of creating a group of female pirates with which to start a new path for Disney ownership. Robbie was announced as the lead, although the rest of the cast or when we will be able to see her on our screens is still unknown. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there is a lot of secrecy about the story, but it is known that the story will be completely original and with new characters, and also that it has nothing to do with the ‘reboot’ that Craig Mazin and Ted Elliot are preparing, announced at the end 2019. The script will be written by Christina Hodson (who previously worked with Robbie on ‘Birds of Prey’).
