    Gerwig has been working on her third directorial venture ‘Barbie‘ which stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken respectively. However, she has a different feeling about the film’s outcome.

    In a conversation with singer Dua Lipa on the At Your Service podcast, the 39-year-old filmmaker talked about the film. “It was something that was exciting because it was terrifying,” Gerwig said.

    I think that was a big part of it, like: ‘Oh, no, Barbie.’” She further said, “It felt like vertigo, starting to write it, like: ‘Where do you even begin, and what would be the story?’”

    And I think it was that feeling I had was knowing that it would be really interesting terror. Usually that’s where the best stuff is, where you’re like, ‘I am terrified of that.’ Anything where you’re like, ‘This could be a career-ender’ — then you’re like, ‘I should probably do it,‘” she concluded.

    Margot Robbie had earlier talked about portraying the titular character. “Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,’ but our goal is to be like, ‘Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn’t know you wanted,’” she said.

    Before Gerwig took over the project, the script had been in development for years. Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway were initially in talks to play the title role.

    America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Rhea Perlman, and Will Ferrell will appear in supporting roles. The film is slated to release on July 21, 2023.
