For Mattel Films upcoming first feature, Margot Robbie might just be the Barbie girl for their Barbie world. Mattel is partnering with Warner Bros since the toymaker acquired the rights to their brand back, with Robbie also likely serving as a producing partner.
Besides Margot Robbie’s obvious resemblance to the popular doll, the actress already has a working relationship with Warner Bros with her continuing role as Harley Quinn.
The talented blonde-haired beauty certainly will seamlessly fit right into the sparkly dresses, bright heels and Malibu dream house of the popular toy.
Robbie is more of a cookie-cutter choice for Barbie, but hopefully the film still uses an opportunity to open these discussions about women, as the doll has undergone tons of scrutiny in recent years for portraying unrealistic dimensions of the female body.
Margot Robbie can be seen next as Queen Elizabeth I alongside Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scots in theaters on December 2018.
