Alright alright, it’s a slow day on the news front. After months of rumours linking her to the role which both Anne Hathaway and Amy Schumer were previously attached to, it’s now been confirmed by ‘Vogue UK’ that the Suicide Squad and Mary, Queen of Scots star will lead the film – both as its star and its producer. Says Margot:
“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery. Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president. 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.”
Margot of course has just finished shooting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and is about to film DC’s Birds of Prey.
