"It’d Make A Billion Dollars": Jurassic Park Comparison Helped Barbie Get Greenlit By Warner Bros


Barbie star Margot Robbie explains how comparing her Mattel movie adaptation to Jurassic Park helped it get the greenlight during the pitching process. Helmed by Little Women director Greta Gerwig, and starring Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, and Will Ferrell, Barbie first went into development back in 2009. Robbie became attached to the project when she was cast in 2019, and was responsible for bringing Gerwig on board.
