After the recent success of live action toy franchises to hit the big screen it comes as no surprise to hear that Mattel’s Barbie doll is getting the Hollywood treatment.
As a child I couldn’t see the point of Barbie when my brother had much more fun toys to play with like Action Man and racing cars. I ditched the doll and played with the boys.
It’s too early to say which direction Universal will take on one the most famous dolls in the world. My hope for a black comedy starring Anna Faris in the role of the blonde who has every thing is rather doubtful.
