Barbie: Ryan Gosling reportedly in talks to join Margot Robbie in upcoming movie by Warner Bros

Barbie, starring Margot Robbie, seems to have found its Ken. According to Deadline, Ryan Gosling is in final talks to portray the famous Mattel figure in Warner Bros’ film based on the popular doll line. Greta Gerwig is directing the film, and Robbie plays the title character.

However, given his hectic schedule, Gosling first declined the role, but as pre-production went on and the studio insisted on his being their sole option, an opening in his calendar arose, enabling him to join on. With Gosling on board, the project seems to be on the approach of being greenlit, with production set to begin in early 2022. The script was co-written by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach.

Meanwhile, Plot specifics are unclear at this moment, but considering Gerwig’s track record as a filmmaker, one can anticipate this to be a unique take on the narrative of the doll. However, as per Deadline, Robbie is producing the picture alongside LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley, Mattel’s Robbie Brenner, and David Heyman under her LuckyChap Entertainment brand. Executive producers include Josey McNamara of LuckyChap and Ynon Kreiz of Mattel.

In terms of Gosling, the part may be some of the most accurate casting in recent years, and it is likely to excite fans even more about what to anticipate from this film. The Oscar-nominated actor just completed filming on the Netflix action film The Gray Man, in which he co-stars with Chris Evans and is directed by the Russo Brothers. According to Deadline, Gosling is repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. LuckyChap is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
