Universal To Make A Live Action Movie About Barbie

Live Action Barbie Movie in the Works — Who Should Play Her?

We were just talking about the trend of board games getting made into movies, and now comes word that the holy grail of childhood toys, Barbie, is also getting a film deal.

Universal Pictures is teaming up with Mattel to develop a family film based on the doll, but here's the kicker: it's going to be live-action. That means two Hollywood types are going to be playing the famous blonde with impossibly high arches and her anatomically challenged boyfriend, Ken.

Let's talk casting. I'm sure a bunch of celeb mommies will be lining up to take on the part — what mom wouldn't want to play a role that's guaranteed to be a huge hit with her kids? — and I'm curious to see just which lady lands the lead. Until then, let's have some fun and try a few guesses of our own. Who would you choose to portray Barbie and Ken in the new movie?
