Ryan Gosling is in final negotiations to join Margot Robbie in the big-budget live-action movie based on Mattel's classic and iconic "Barbie" toy line at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The two-time Oscar-nominee is in negotiations to star in the upcoming Warner Bros. and Mattel film, directed by Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote the script with Noah Baumbach.
Gosling was offered the role in the summer but due to scheduling issues declined. When the feature project got pushed back, it allowed for an opening.
Margot Robbie is starring as Barbie and producing the project via her LuckyChap banner alongside LuckyChap's Tom Ackerley. Mattel Films's Robbie Brenner and Paddington's David Heyman are also producing.
