Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will not be the only interpreters of the famous dolls from Mattel.
In the middle of filming Barbiedirected by Greta Gerwig (lady bird) from a screenplay co-written with Noah Baumbach, a journalist from New York Times learned yesterday at Cannes that this crazy-cast comedy would actually feature multiple versions of Barbie and Ken. We knew so far that the couple of dolls would be played by Margot Robbie (harley quinn) and Ryan Gosling (Drive), but Kyle Buchanan is formal on Twitter : Barbie will also have the features of Issa Rae (Insecure) and Hari Nef (Assassination Nation). Here they are together:
In the same idea, Ken will appear on the screen embodied by Simu Liu (Shang Chi) and Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education):
Knowing that the cast also consists of the female side of Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Emerald Fennell and Emma Mackey, and the male side of Kingsley Ben-Adir, Scott Evans, Connor Swindells and Michael Cera, could it be that some of them also play Barbie and Ken? Apart from Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and Will Ferrell (chosen to play the boss of Mattel), no role has been officially confirmed by Warner Bros. at this time. Barbie will be released in theaters on July 19, 2023.
Margot Robbie promises a Barbie movie “totally different” from what we can imagine
