America Ferrera is getting dolled up…
The 37-year-old Honduran American Emmy-winning actress will co-star opposite Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in Warner Bros.’ Barbie, the studio’s film centered on the classic doll line.
Gerwig also co-wrote script with Noah Baumbach.
Plot details are unknown, but given Gerwig’s track record as a director, one can expect that this won’t be your typical take on the doll’s story.
Robbie is producing the film under her LuckyChap Entertainment production banner along with LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley.
Ferrera is set to make her feature directorial debut with an adaptation of Erika Sánchez’s bestselling novel I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, with Sánchez to serve as a co-producer on the film. She also has the anticipated Apple TV+ limited series We Crashed, which bows in March and also stars Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway.
Ferrera executive produced and directed episodes for Seasons 1 & 2 of Netflix’s Gentefied.
