First Photo From Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie – Deadline

Blond hair? Check. Abs in eight? Check. A sleeveless faded denim jacket? Check.

Anyone who’s survived the ’80s knows the look, and Ryan Gosling pulls it off perfectly in the first image of him as “Ken” from Barbie, Warner Bros.’ Mattel movie directed by Greta Gerwig.

Barbie has been in development for some time, initially at Sony with Anne Hathaway and Amy Schumer framing the lead role before the project moved to Warner Bros. It also features Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Issa Rae also starring. Gerwig and Noah Baumback co-wrote the screenplay. Little is known about the plot, but given Gerwig’s track record as a director, one would expect this isn’t your typical take on the iconic doll’s story.

The first image of Margot Robbie as the film’s titular doll came out a while ago.
