Barbie is ready for her close up.
Mattel has set up a live-action Barbie movie at Sony Pictures, Variety reports.
The picture, written by Jenny Bicks, is expected to begin shooting by the end of the year, and will be a comedy. (Hopefully a self-aware one.)
It’s not the first time a Barbie movie has neared fruition. Universal Pictures came close in 2009. The iconic doll also made several appearances in the Toy Story series.
Sony hopes a successful Barbie movie could inspire a new franchise, similar to their current plans to give every Spider-Man character their own movie.
So, only Anna Faris should star in this, right?
