Incase you didn’t already know, Margot Robbie has been cast in a new live-action Barbie film.

Now I know what you’re thinking… that sounds absolutely horrendous.

BUT, hear me out.

The film will be helmed by directing duo and partners Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach!

Greta is known for her incredible work such as Lady Bird, Little Women and indie film Frances Ha.

Noah has worked on numerous accoladed films, the most recent of which, Netflix phenomenon Marriage Story.

So, with the film in such powerful hands, and their plans to take the classic ‘perfect’ Barbie and add a dystopian twist, the film is shaping up to be very good.

Margot Robbie recently revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that “our goal is to be like… whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different – the thing you didn’t know you wanted.”

The plot begins when ‘Barbie’ is cast out of Barbieland because she isn’t making the cut when it comes to the expectations of other residents, a tale we can all relate to in some way, shape or form.

We will have to wait and see…
