The enlarged cast of the forthcoming film about the legendary Mattel doll has piqued the interest of armies of fans.
Simu Liu, the star of Marvel‘s recent film 'Shang-Chi And The Legend of the Ten Rings', will play an as-yet unnamed role in the forthcoming 'Barbie' movie, that has already signed two big stars: Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie will play Ken and Barbie.
Before Robbie, Amy Schumer was considered for the role, but she couldn't join the project because of her busy schedule with other movies. There were rumors that Anne Hathaway was also considered for the lead role.
The movie will reconsider the classic Barbie story. Margot Robbie, who turned in a legendary performance as Harley Quinn in 2016's 'Suicide Squad', promised that the film will surprise the audience.
Judging from the actress' words, she will play an atypical Barbie and will also be a producer of the picture: “People, when mentioning Barbie, immediately think: 'Oh, Margot plays Barbie, I already know what will happen.' We say: 'Whatever you think, we will show you something completely different. Something that you didn’t even imagine'.”
The Barbie team is actively preparing to start filming, which is due to kick off this year. The premiere is scheduled for 2023.
