After 50 years in the spotlight, our favorite doll is finally going to get the red carpet treatment she deserves. Universal Pictures has announced that they are going to make a live-action Barbie movie. The family-friendly film does not have a script yet but there is reportedly no shortage of plot possibilities, since as we all know, over the years Barbie has gained experience working in over 120 professions.
“Barbie is the most famous doll in history, a unique cultural icon in the world of brands,” said Universal Pictures chairman Marc Shmuger. “So many representations of Barbie frequent pop culture, but never before has she been brought to life in a motion picture. We’re grateful to Mattel for entrusting us with this extraordinary opportunity.”
