Dream Doll Movie

There’s already a Barbie movie in the works at Warner Bros. Pictures with Margot Robbie playing the titular blonde doll and Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach writing the script. But that’s a movie that focuses on the doll as the lead character. What about the woman behind the creation of the beloved toy?

Dream Doll is a new movie in development at Bron Studios that will tell the story of Ruth Handler, the woman who invented Barbie, turned Mattel into a toy giant, and went on to become one of the first women to run a Fortune 500 company. It’s an inspirational tale that everyone should know. Read More »

barbie movie writers

The Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie has found two new writers, and they’re definitely not who you’d expect: Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. The Frances Ha and Mistress America team will work together yet again to pen the script for the toy adaptation. There’s also a chance Gerwig might direct, although there’s no deal for that yet.

Anne Hathaway may soon find that life in plastic, it’s fantastic.

The Colossal actress is reportedly eyeing the lead role in Sony’s Barbie movie, which Amy Schumer was originally slated to play before she dropped out of the comedy in March. But before you start praising the film for casting someone who’s more classically beautiful, I just want to remind you: the Barbie movie is a subversive comedy about a woman who doesn’t fit in, in the land of Barbies. But considering Hathaway’s underrated comedy chops, she could be a good choice for the role anyway.

Amy Schumer Live at the Apollo

Last week, Amy Schumer dropped out of Sony’s upcoming Barbie movie. And while Schumer’s casting was unconventional, the plot of the film is as well: the story follows a lead character who kicked out of a world of “perfect” women and finds herself on an adventure in the real world (Disney’s Enchanted seems to be the common point of comparison). Naturally, all kinds of important life lessons are learned.

Since no one has been hired to replace Schumer just yet, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Using that specific logline (and Schumer’s sense of humor) as a guideline, we’ve offered up our own suggestions for the role. These 11 women are all hilarious, talented, and exist a step (or several) outside the typical Hollywood template.
