Barbie To Be Made Into Film By Sony Pictures
Sony Pictures and Mattel plan to bring live-action comedy on toy fashion doll into production by end 2014
Brace yourselves; Sony Pictures is looking at Barbie as a possible film franchise. The film production giant and Mattel have come together to kick-start production plans for the first Barbie film by the end of the year.
Will she be a princess or doctor, you ask? A movie star or a president? Sources say that the film will be a buddy comedy, in which Barbie is an overworked bureaucrat looking for an assistant. Whatever it is, we pray she has normal body proportions. Modelesque if you will – she is Barbie after all – but none of those unbelievably tiny feet or 18-inch waist, please.
