Margot Robbie was cast as Barbie earlier this year but now a front runner for Ken has emerged with Ryan Gosling.

It’s not 100% official but apparently, the stud is in final negotiations, according to Deadline.

The Barbie movie will be co-written by Greta Gerwig whose genius includes Lady Bird and Little Women and her husband Noah Baumbach.

With Greta at the helm, directing the film too, she plans to slip the Barbie narrative on its head so I don’t think we’ll be seeing the classic ditzy depiction of the doll.

But no matter what she does with the modern-day live-action, she’ll never be able to beat these classics, sorry queen.
