Barbie, a classic toy spawning multiple animated films and features, is making a live-action movie! So far, the confirmed cast members include Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu (劉思慕), and Will Ferrell.
Preparing for his role, Simu shared that he had gone through full body waxing in order to achieve a plastic sheen. He exclaimed that it was one of the most painful experiences of his life! “But at least it was an educational experience. I have newfound admiration for all the women who go through this every month.”
The Shang Chi star shared that he had little knowledge of the storyline or character when he auditioned for the role, but he decided to accept the offer after his agent said that it was one of the best scripts he’s ever read. Another factor that influenced his decision was that Greta Gerwig, who is an Academy Award nominated director, will be directing the film.
Barbie is produced by Warner Brothers and is expected to be released on July 21, 2023.
