In what might be a perfect casting, Margot Robbie is rumoured to play Barbie in Mattel’s upcoming feature film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-nominated actress is ‘in talks’ with Mattel, after reports that Amy Schumer would no longer play the role due to scheduling conflicts.

Back in 2014, it was announced that Sony would produce the film, however rights reverted back to Mattel sometime this year. This was around the same time Schumer was rumoured to star.

Reports aside, let’s hope the deal with Robbie follows through.

In the meantime, we’ll be eagerly awaiting her epic portrayal of Queen Elizabeth I later this year.
