Betty on the News: Barbie Gets Her Own Movie
Little Miss Popular is heading to the big screen
Universal Pictures is about to provide us with the greatest thing since sliced bread: a live-action film starring Barbie!
The studio has teamed up with Mattel, our favorite gal’s original manufacturer, to begin hashing out ideas which will no doubt amount to one amazing movie.
“Barbie may be the most popular girl in the world,” Lawrence Mark, who will take on producing duties, stated. “And has always been a wonderfully aspirational figure, so we must do her proud.”
Fun fact: Mattel broke the news that Barbie had dumped Ken Carson in 2004, but later stated that the lovers decided to give it another go.
Will we be seeing any knockdown drag-out fights in this future flick? We can only hope. (guardian.co.uk)
