All eyes are on Barbie! The much-anticipated movie gets even more hype thanks to a recent report that Dua Lipa is joining the cast. A newcomer in the film industry, the 26-year-old British singer is set to make her acting debut in Apple+’s spy movie Argylle in 2023.
Dua is reportedly set to join veteran actors Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling — who play Barbie and Ken respectively — in the live-action film directed by Greta Gerwig.
The Barbie live-action cast also includes Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Issa Rae (Insecure), Emma Mackey (Sex Education), Emerald Fennell (The Crown) and Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).
The movie’s all-star cast may be a clue to a more interesting twist! Kyle Buchanan of the New York Times reported that there will be multiple Barbies and Kens in the film. Think multiverse!
For one, I’m hearing that Ryan Gosling is not the only Ken in the BARBIE film. Simu Liu and Ncuti Gatwa also play Kens— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) May 18, 2022
Barbie has already started production and is scheduled to be released in July 2023.
This article will be updated with Barbie live-action confirmed cast, official trailer and other details as more information becomes available.
