– Ryan Gosling’s platinum Ken knocks the net: the beauty of “La La Land” will be Margot Robbie’s sweetheart in Greta Gerwig’s next film, “Barbie”, and fans started fighting when Warner he distributed the first image in the actor lowered in the part. “Perfect for an Academy Award-winning film”, predicted the “Guardian”, while for many who love Gosling the new look of the photo is “scary”: “How they managed to transform into” not hot “- yes and asked a fan on Twitter – one who is “hot” naturally? “. The image is the second after that, released at the end of April, of Margot in the part of the Mattel doll at the wheel of a shocking pink corvette. The columns of a Pepto-Bismol colored house are also the backdrop for Ryan’s Ken: bleached, almost white hair, underpants with the word “Ken” on the elastic (made by Calvin Klein) peeking out of faded jeans and a sleeveless jeans open on the well chiseled abs. The look out of the toy store is completed by a tan that, rather than from the Santa Monica beach, seems to be produced by the self-tanner so much it turns into shades of orange. Eva Mendes, the partner of the 41-year-old Canadian actor, liked the new look: “#ThatsMyKen”, she commented on Twitter: “I can’t wait for you to see it in the film too”. There is a release date in theaters, June 21, 2023, but the plot reigns the utmost secrecy even if, according to unconfirmed rumors, it would include various characters in the parts of as many Barbie and Ken, plus the younger sisters of the Skipper doll, Chelsea and Stacie.
Gerwig wrote the script with Noah Baumbach, her life partner and collaborator on “Francis Ha” and “Mistress America” ​​and the cast is five-star: America Ferrera, Simu Liu, SNL ex Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey and Ncuti Gatwa from “Sex Education”, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, Michael Cera and many more. One of the various Kenes would be Liu (“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”) who described the production as “incredible” with an important choreographic part while not being a musical. “When they hear about” Barbie “people think they know what to expect, but then they tell you that Greta is directing – said Robbie, who also entered production in 2019 – and you have a thousand doubts”. The film has been in the making for years. A first screenplay by Jenny Bicks (“Sex and the City”) for Sony was rewritten by Diablo Cody (“Juno”) and Amy Schumer in 2016 came aboard with a new script by Hillary Wilson about a Barbie hunted from Barbieland. for its alleged imperfections. But then Schumer had abandoned the project due to divergence of views on the rendering of the iconic doll. However, Barbie is not the only Mattel toy that is receiving a cinematic treatment: Lily Collins of “Emily in Paris” will be Polly Pocket in a film directed by Lena Dunham of “Girls”
