Margot Robbie says she was initially unsure that the studio would even let them produce the Barbie film after reading the script.
“The first time I read the Barbie script, my reaction was, ‘Ah! This is so good. What a shame it will never see the light of day,” she told BAFTA. “Because they are never going to let us make this movie.”
Robbie refused to elaborate on the plot of the Barbie movie and remained silent when asked about the script.
Greta Gerwig directed and co-wrote the script for the picture. She had previously mentioned in November 2022 that writing the script was a “terrifying” experience for her.

“It was terrifying. I think there’s something about starting from that place where it’s like, ‘Well, anything is possible,’” Gerwig told Dua Lipa on her podcast At Your Service. “It felt like vertigo starting to write it. Like, where do you even begin? What would be the story?”
She later on added, “Usually, that’s where the best stuff is. When you’re like, ‘I am terrified of that.’ Anything where you’re like, ‘This could be a career-ender,’ then you’re like, ‘OK, I probably should do it.’”
Ryan Gosling co-stars with Robbie as Ken.
