Barbie is less likely to trip in her stilettos since filmmaker Greta Gerwig has laid the driveway to her ideal home. On July 9, 2021, Variety announced that Little Women filmmaker Greta Gerwig will direct the live-action Barbie movie, with Robbie cast as Mattel’s size-zero icon. The iconic blonde who has worked as a president, doctor, teacher, fashion designer, and Olympian will have to defend her feminism in front of her detractors under Gerwig’s direction.
But that also brings with it a tonne of fascinating ways to go after it. Here is what we now know about the doll drama.
When will the movie Barbie be available?
The movie Barbie premieres on July 21, 2023. In the first glimpse of Robbie dressed as the character and draped in pink, Warner Bros. revealed the information.
The Warner Bros. project was initially revealed in 2019, but in the time since then, Gerwig and Robbie have been quite busy with a variety of other endeavors, not to mention a pandemic. Variety claims that after completing work on the Baumbach-directed 2022 film White Noise, Gerwig and co-writer Noah Baumbach will finalize the script.
Who is Ken playing in the movie Barbie?
On October 22, 2021, it was revealed that Ryan Gosling was close to signing a contract to play Ken, the well-known love interest of Barbie and an excellent candidate for a leading guy to co-star with Robbie. According to reports, Gosling first turned down the part because he said he was too busy, but the production’s holdup coincided with a spare time in his schedule. Alongside Chris Evans, Gosling just finished filming the Netflix movie The Gray Man by the Russo brothers.
Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled an incredible first-look photograph of Ryan Gosling in the notorious role on June 15, 2022, complete with bleached blonde hair, a denim vest, and a spray tan, no less.
What other actors are there in Barbie?
Barbie is going to be a really popular production. According to reports, Would Ferrell will portray the CEO of a toy manufacturer.

Together, they join Issa Rae from Insecure, Michael Cera from Superbad, Marisa Abela from Industry, Rhea Perlman from Cheers, Kingsley Ben-Adir from One Night in Miami, Ncuti Gatwa from Sex Education, Emerald Fennell from The Crown, a promising young woman director, Sharon Rooney from Dumbo, Scott Evans from One Life to Live, Grace and Frankie, Ana Cruz Kayne from Painkiller, Connor S Emma Mackey (Sex Education), Hari Nef (Tick, Tick…Boom! ), and Alexandra Shipp.
Simu Liu supposedly went to the audition because of the quality of the story, which was co-written by director Greta Gerwig and her life partner, filmmaker Noah Baumbach.
“If I could bet my career on one script, it would be the “Barbie” script, said [a junior agent]. I really believe you should,” in May, the star of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” spoke to GQ UK. Harold, the couple’s kid, was born in 2019 and Gerwig and Baumbach have been dating since 2011. The plot of the film is unknown.
