Barbie Is Getting a Live-Action Movie

It’s true – Mattel and Sony Pictures are coming together to create a live-action comedy centered on our favorite fashion doll.

Hannah Minghella, Columbia Pictures’ president of production, had this to say:

We’ve always thought that the Barbie story had great potential, but a universe of possibilities opened up when Jenny, Walter and Laurie brought us their unexpected, clever, and truly funny concept. It captures everything that has made Barbie a classic for generation after generation while also standing on its own, establishing Barbie as a truly original screen character.

The actual plot is not yet known, but may involve the use of some of Barbie’s various careers and personas she has accumulated since her inception. Production begins at the end of the year, with Jenny Bicks (What a Girl Wants, Rio 2) composing the script.
