It was bound to happen, so I'm not surprised.
Universal Pictures has added Barbie to its star stable.
The studio has made a deal with Mattel to build a live action film around its signature toy line. Studios are placing a premium on building films around well-known concepts. Universal brass feels it has landed the queen of globally branded toy figures.
But will folks pay $15 to see her, Skipper, Ken (and his gay lover) and P.J.?
And Christie BETTER be in it, goddammit!
