Live-Action Barbie Movie Gets Writer

March 5th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



Though it’s 2015, Barbie is still one of the best selling toys out there. There’s just no stopping it. So with recent success in movies, mainly the Lego Movie, a Barbie movie was only a matter of time.

Now, not only is there a movie coming, it has an official writer. Diablo Cody, who you might know from Juno among other films, is set to draft the script for the upcoming film.

“Diablo’s unconventionality is just what Barbie needs,” he said. “It signals we’re going for a legitimately contemporary tone. We’re bringing her on because she had great ideas, but even more importantly, she truly loves Barbie.” said Parkes + McDonalds, who made a deal with Mattel to make this picture possible.

It’s unclear who may star in this film, or when a possible release date for it is.
