According to Deadline, the 40-year-old actor is in the final stages of talks to join the project. Gosling is set to play the role of Ken opposite Margot Robbie, who will play the titular character, Barbie.
Though plot details are being kept mostly under wraps, the film is pegged to challenge stereotypes and will have a more feminist approach to the popular doll. IMDB suggests the story will follow Barbie after her expulsion from ‘Barbieland’ for not being perfect enough.
Production on Barbie hopes to begin early next year.
