When is Barbie: The Movie Being Released? Barbie, directed, produced, and written by Greta Gerwig, who co-wrote it with Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story), is set to hit theaters on July 21st.
Interestingly, this release date coincides with Oppenheimer, a film directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Interstellar), making it a highly anticipated day for movie lovers in 2023.
Behind the Scenes of the Barbie Movie Did you know that there have been previous attempts to create a live-action Barbie film? In 2014, Diablo Cody (Juno) worked on a screenplay for Barbie in collaboration with Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City) for Sony. However, the project didn't move forward until Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer) took over the adaptation in 2016, also produced by Sony.
According to reports, Schumer was set to star in the movie, which would have featured a Barbie who didn't fit the stereotypical standards imposed by the Barbie world. Due to creative differences, Schumer exited the project, and Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) took over the lead role. Nevertheless, the movie never materialized.
In 2019, Margot Robbie, Greta Garwig and Noah Baumbach took over the Barbie movie, this time produced by Warner Bros, and the result arrives this July.
