barbie live action movie

After more than 50 years, Barbie is finally getting her own live action movie!

And not just that - Sony thinks gurl will be their next big franchise!

People have been trying to get the movie rights for a live action Barbie from Mattel for years! So how did Sony finally win them over? Apparently the female empowerment take on it from What A Girl Wants and Sex & The City writer Jenny Bicks is pitch perfect!

Barbie will use her special skills to step in and out of the lives of others, making everything around her better! Sort of like a modern day Emma - that is to say, like a MORE modern Cher from Clueless! LOLz!

But if they want a hit franchise, they're going to have to cast the absolute perfect gal to bring the plastic icon to life! Here are our top pics for the role of Barbie!

barbie kate upton

Kate Upton is far and away the obvious choice. She's obvi a perfect ten who even looks like a real-life Barbie, PLUS she just showed off her sense of humor in the hit comedy The Other Woman!

barbie emma stone

Emma Stone may be more petite than Barbie, but she just radiates loveliness into the world - just like the movie! Plus, she could just hop from one Sony franchise to another…

barbie jennifer lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is unlikely to go back to a franchise after Hunger Games and X-Men, but she does have the statuesque beauty and natural likability needed for the part.

barbie margot robbie

So far, Margot Robbie has tended towards more mature fare, but the near-perfect looking 23-year-old Wolf Of Wall Street star has the looks, the acting ability, and the star quality to lead the franchise for years!

barbie emily vancamp

Emily VanCamp has an old school grace that she could easily move from Revenge to paying it forward!

barbie katrina bowden

Katrina Bowden is best known for playing the ditzy Cerie on 30 Rock, but she's been working nonstop since then in roles of all kinds. She also looks about as Barbie as you can get!

barbie laura vandervoort

Laura Vandervoort not only looks the part, she already played one girl who went around saving people - she was Supergirl on Smallville!

barbie ashley benson

Ashley Benson would be a tiny little Barbie, but hey - still more than four feet taller than the original! LOLz!

barbie lupita nyongo

Does Lupita Nyong'o not possess every quality we've been talking about? Beauty, poise, a joie de vivre? And she DEF makes the world around her better!

barbie taylor swift

Setting people up, making friends wherever she goes, helping others instead of herself - we're pretty sure Taylor Swift IS a live action Barbie!

    Re: Emily – Last time I checked, Barbie doesn't look like a RAT. So no, Taylor [fake as a sociopath] Swift is not good for the role.
