Greta Gerwig to Write & Possibly Direct 'Barbie' Movie Starring Margot Robbie!

Greta Gerwig will be co-writing the screenplay for the upcoming live-action Barbie movie and she’s also in talks to possibly direct the film!

The 35-year-old Oscar-nominated actress and filmmaker will be writing the screenplay alongside her longtime partner Noah Baumbach, according to THR.

Margot Robbie will be playing Barbie in the movie. The project has been in the works since 2018 and Amy Schumer was originally set to star in the film and Anne Hathaway was later attached.

Greta and Margot grew close during the 2018 awards season when their movies Lady Bird and I, Tonya were both nominated at nearly every show. It was only a matter of time before they found a project to work on together!
