Hollywood star Margot Robbie is in talks to star in a upcoming movie based on the doll, Barbie. A film has been in the making for years on the same, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Earlier, Sony was supposed to take over work on the movie, however, Warner Brothers are going to take over the project and are trying to get Margot Robbie on board.

The project was first announced in 2014 and actor and comedienne Amy Schumer was set to star in the film. However, Amy had dropped the project citing date troubles. The film was supposed to represent the character with more feminist appeal. After Amy dropped the film, there were rumours circling the industry that Oscar winner Anne Hathaway would feature as the protagonist.

The film was set to release on August 8, 2018. But the date was pushed to May 8, 2020 and Sony transferred the original rights back to the toymaking company Mattel. And now looks like Mattel has found a new partner to collaborate with in Warner Bros. The Hollywood Reporter also suggests that Wonder Woman hitmaker Patty Jenkins might take over as well and helm the feature.
