Ryan Gosling To Play Ken with Margot Robbie In ‘Barbie’ Movie From Warner Bros

Warner Bros. and director Greta Gerwig have seemingly found perfect Barbie and Ken for the upcoming film based on the iconic Mattel dolls, according to Deadline.  Joining Margot Robbie as Barbie, Ryan Gosling, the two-time Oscar-nominee is in final negotiations to star in the upcoming film, “Barbie.”

The 40-year-old “La La Land” star initially passed on the role due to his busy schedule, however, since production was delayed because of COVID, which allowed him to reconsider.

Director Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote the script with Noah Baumbach. Margot Robbie also does double duty on this project, in addition to starring as the iconic Mattel doll, she’s producing the movie under her production company LuckyChap Entertainment, which is coming off an Oscar-winning run for last year’s “Promising Young Woman.” Producers on “Barbie” also include LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, Mattel’s Robbie Brenner and Ynon Kreiz, and David Heyman.

So far, plot details are unknown, but given Gerwig’s track record as a director, one can expect that this won’t be your typical take on the doll’s story.

Gosling recently wrapped production on “The Gray Man,” the big-budget Netflix action thriller from Anthony and Joe Russo. Based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Mark Greaney, as Court Gentry, a veteran CIA operative who is forced to become a fugitive after he’s betrayed.

“Barbie” was set to start production in early 2022 at WB’s Leavesden Studios in London, with a planned 2023 theatrical release.
