Sony's production president Hannah Minghella said: "We've always thought that the Barbie story had great potential, but a universe of possibilities opened up when Jenny, Walter and Laurie brought us their unexpected, clever, and truly funny concept.
-
"It captures everything that has made Barbie a classic for generation after generation while also standing on its own, establishing Barbie as a truly original screen character."
-
The Barbie movie will be the second collaboration between Sony and Mattel, who are also working on a Masters of the Universe project together.
-
According to Deadline, the Barbie storyline will see the character utilise "her personal and professional skills to step into the lives of others and improve them, almost like a modern-day Mary Poppins".
