Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway were rumoured candidates for the lead part in the Barbie live-action remake when it was once being created for Sony. However, since then, Warner Bros. gained control and chose Margot Robbie as Barbie after many creative alterations. In 2021 Ryan Gosling was chosen to play Ken, Barbie’s romantic lead. Lately, images of the movie’s leading actors on the sets as they were shooting a sequence involving rollerblading have created a buzz on social media. Here are fan reactions to the same:
All we know about the Barbie movie:
In July 2019, Margot Robbie revealed that Greta Gerwig and her partner Noah Baumbach would be co-writing the script for the live-action adaptation of “Barbie.” Eventually, Gerwig’s role as the movie’s director was revealed. This exciting news was released on the 60th birthday of the popular blonde-haired doll. The movie will debut in theatres on July 21, 2023. It will be created by Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, and she will play Barbie opposite Ryan Gosling’s Ken in it. Robbie has revealed that the Barbie movie carries a lot of history and brings back a lot of memories to pay homage to the heritage of the doll. “But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it,” Robbie said to British Vogue. “People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ’Oh, well, maybe I don’t'”.
Fan response to the recent Barbie set pictures:
In latest set photos for Barbie, the lead actors were spotted on the Venice Beach boardwalk wearing a vibrant pink, blue, and neon green attire. However, this isn’t the first time the actor’s wardrobe has been made public. A few days ago, images of Gosling and Robbie decked out in cowboy gear did the rounds. As they filmed scenes for the Barbie movie in Los Angeles, the Hollywood heartthrobs wore matching white hats and boots along with hot pink neckerchiefs on each of them. This behaviour irritates the fans since they think knowing too much before the movie’s premiere will ruin it for them, which was the same mistake Marvel did with Doctor Strange 2. @keyon on Twitter said, “PLEASE close the Barbie film set DOWN. We gone know every outfit before the movie comes out”. To this, Filmviewer84 replied, “Watch none of those outfits be in the movie and they’re just trolling us”. Speaking along similar lines, user Maxxine said, “Right I wanna b surprised! I hate it here lol”.
