According to Deadline, which cited sources, Ryan Gosling is in “final negotiations” to sign on to the movie about the classic Mattel dolls. The publication added that Gosling had initially passed on the project because of his busy schedule.
However, the studio thought that he was the only choice to play Ken, and when pre-production dragged on and an opening in his schedule appeared, the 40-year-old actor reconsidered.
Online chatter has touched on Gosling’s resemblance to the doll.
With the two leads almost confirmed, the Warner Bros movie is close to being greenlit and will likely begin shooting at the start of 2022, reported Deadline.
The Barbie movie will be directed by Greta Gerwig, who helmed Lady Bird and Little Women. Gerwig is also co-writing the script, together with frequent collaborator Noam Baumbach (Marriage Story).
With Gerwig’s involvement, it’s safe to say that the film will likely not be a typical representation of these iconic characters’ stories.
