Actress Margot Robbie is set to earn HUGE praise for her role in Mary, Queen of Scots, and now the Australian is set to star in a totally different movie.

She's officially signed on to produce and star in a live-action BARBIE movie, E! News reported today.

Warner Bros. and Mattel have struck up a partnership to bring the franchise to the cinemas in it's first ever live-action take on the famous doll.

Chairman of Warner Bros, Toby Emmerich, commented on Margot's new role in the project;

"Margot is the ideal producer and actress to bring Barbie to life on screen in a fresh and relevant way for today's audiences." Robbie intends on co-producing the movie under LuckyChap Entertainment.

The 28-year-old actress released a statement expressing her delight at playing the role of Barbie;

"Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child's journey to self-discovery. Over the brand's almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president."

She continued; "I'm so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can't imagine better partners than Warner Bros. and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen."

Tom Ackerley, Margot's husband, as well as her business partner are also co-producers. Mattel took back the rights after the option passed on Sony's deal, and Robbie signed a first-look negotiation with Warner Bros in 2016.

Chairman and CEO of Mattel, said in a statement; "Barbie is one of the most iconic franchises in the world and we are excited to partner with Warner Bros Pictures and Margot Robbie to bring her to life on the big screen. We look forward to building on this collaboration with Warner Bros Pictures as we tell the stories of our beloved brands."

Amy Schumer was previously roped in to portray the titular doll she dropped out in 2017, saying in a statement, "Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen." 

A director or release date has yet to be assigned. 

We can't wait to see what Margot does with this role, she really can be anything she wants. Barbie inspo 101.

Graduating from soap to the silver screen, it's perhaps no surprise that Margot Robbie harboured reservations ahead of her role in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Starring opposite Leonardo Di Caprio is no mean feat for any actor or actress, but it sounds like Margot had more concerns about the public's perception of her than her co-star's one.

The Australian actress opened up during a recent interview with Wonderland and revealed that her role as Naomi caused her concern due to the script's fixation with her physical appearance.

Described in the script as 'the hottest blonde ever', Margot, who was 23 during shooting, feared that she wouldn't be able to do the character of Naomi justice.

In a display of incredible humility, the stunning actress admitted that she feared audiences wouldn't consider her attractive enough to pull off the role.

"When I was playing Naomi in The Wolf of Wolf Street it was so high-tempo sexy," she began.

"I was acutely aware that the line in the screenplay was 'the hottest blonde ever', I'm clearly not the hottest blonde ever,” she opined.

Arguing that the role put pressure on her, not just from an acting perspective, Margot revealed she became insecure about the fixation on her character's appearance.

“I was just terrified that people would see the movie and think 'eugh! She's not that great.'" she admitted.
