Barbie goes Hollywood

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Thursday, September 24, 2009

Barbie has found a big screen home with Universal Pictures. The studio will make a live-action film starring the world's most famous piece of girly plastic, with Julie & Julia producer Laurence Mark developing the picture. For a woman that turns 50 years old this year Barbie sure looks great (and she's lucky to get a leading role past the age of 45 in showbiz!)

No screenwriter has bene hired and there's no ETA for the Barbie movie. As for what direction the film's storyline could go, since Barbie has had so many high profile jobs (astronaut, doctor, lawyer, beauty technician) there's no lack of story possibilities for the writer that gets the job.

Barbie was created in 1959 by Ruth Handler as a new kind of companion for her daughter's paper doll collection. Her full name is Barbar Millicent Roberts and she comes from the make believe small town of Willows, Wisconsin. A standard Barbie doll is 11.5-inches tall and has a newly expanded waist size of 33-inches. Her on-again, off-again boyfriend is Ken. Last year a Barbie doll was released that had Ken's name tattooed on the lower back of Barbie, effectively giving her her very own tramp stamp. Awww.

Barbie : The Movie, GI Joe, Battleship..... all these toy movies. I think they should make a movie based on those Star Wars toys I had as a kid. Seeing the Millenium Falcon or an X-Wing on screen would RAWK!!!!

They could call it "Star Wars". It would be awesome!

....says "Kill Bond, NOW!"
