The advent of a Barbie movie is already a long time spoken. Sony announced the project in 2014 and reported later that Amy Schumer as the lead had drawn. That did not go through because Schumer, the recordings could not combine with another movie where she played. Then it was Anne Hathaway, any time linked to the film.
Earlier this year, the rights go back to Barbie-maker Mattel, who then have a new film studio found in Warner Bros. Sources inform The Hollywood Reporter that Patty Jenkins, known for Wonder Woman, in the picture, as a director.
