Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach have come aboard to pen the screenplay for the Warner Bros Barbie movie, which is being headlined by Margot Robbie.
Gerwig, who is currently editing her much-anticipated "Little Women" adaptation for a Christmas release, is also being "eyed" to direct the film for Warner Bros. Baumbach is also preparing for his next release, an untitled marital drama starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson that Netflix will release in the fall.
The project has been in development for some time and was previously being worked on over at Sony Pictures. At various points, both Anne Hathaway and Amy Schumer were attached to take on the lead role.
