Why Margot Robbie tempered by Harley Quinn solo flick!
Margot Robbie has seriously been on a roll with her pick of roles in the last few years. Audiences love her Harley Quinn of course and her turn as Olympic ice-skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya was unforgettable. As the new year arrives, there’s still a ton to look forward to from the actress. Following her refreshing projects (most of which she also produces as well) one I’m curious about is what her take on Barbie will be. Yes, she’s still on board to play the plastic icon in the near future.
The timing of any rebound is uncertain, as debut dates could change. Hollywood executives have repeatedly shuffled their schedules as they try to judge when the pandemic will fade. Initial excitement over vaccines has been tempered by slow distribution. And audiences will have more choices to stream at home.
What really has me excited about the Barbie movie already is the writers Margot Robbie and her production company chose to pen the Mattel Film. Little Women and Lady Bird filmmaker Greta Gerwig are pairing with her partner Noah Baumbach, the guy behind the Oscar-winning Marriage Story, are taking on the toy property with Robbie leading the film. So, what even is this movie? Here’s how the Birds of Prey star recently described it:
Between the success of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming solo flick, Black Widow, fans have been waiting for Marvel to start developing an all-female Avengers squad, better known as A-Force. We already know that Larson pitched the idea to Marvel president Kevin Feige, and it now looks like she isn’t the only one who wants to see the project get up and running. Turns out Johansson is also pushing Marvel to make an A-Force film, despite the fact that her character perished in Avengers: Endgame.
