Barbie Doll live action movie in the works

Barbie and her friends have made their movie appearances on the small screen and over the past few years Barbie has starred in CGI-animated direct-to-DVD filmsbut now a live action silver screen version is in the works. Fans of the famous fashion doll will be delighted to hear that Mattel, Sony Pictures and Parkes +MacDonald Imagination have teamed up to make a comedy film. Production on the film is set to begin later this year and may even turn into a new film franchise. The Barbie doll made its debut in 1959 and brings in about $3 billion in sales annually.

Hannah Minghella, Columbia Pictures’ president of production, said in a statement: “We’ve always thought that the Barbie story had great potential, but a universe of possibilities opened up when Jenny, Walter and Laurie brought us their unexpected, clever and truly funny concept. It captures everything that has made Barbie a classic for generation after generation while also standing on its own, establishing Barbie as a truly original screen character. We’re confident that Barbie will delight audiences, no matter where her adventures take her.” ~Tarah Bleier
