Damien Chazelle’s ‘Babylon’ Now Going Wide On Dec. 23

The Margot Robbie-Brad Pitt Hollywood yesteryear ensemble is no longer going limited on Christmas, rather wide on Dec. 23 as Sony’s A Man Called Otto switches to a New York-LA engagement on Christmas and a wide break on Jan. 13. Babylon was going to go wide on Jan. 6.

Babylon will open in the wake of 20th Century Studios/Disney’s Avatar: The Way of Water on Dec. 16 and will share the marquee nationwide with such movies as Sony’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Universal/Dreamworks Animation’s Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and the expansion of United Artists Releasing’s drama Women Talking.

Word is Robbie is amazing in the movie and could very well hook awards season buzz, in addition to Pitt. The pic was shot in Santa Clarita, CA, where many silent and early sound movies were made, i.e. Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times. Pitt won two Oscars for Best Picture on 12 Years a Slave and Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Robbie was previously nominated in Supporting for Bombshell and Lead Actress for I, Tonya.

Filmmaker Damien Chazelle showed off the first trailer for Babylon at TIFF following a teaser viewing at CinemaCon back in April.

America Ferrera Joins Margot Robbie In ‘Barbie’ Movie

America Ferrera Joins Margot Robbie In ‘Barbie’ Movie

America Ferrera is set to co-star opposite Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in Warner Bros’ Barbie, the studio’s movie centered on the classic doll line. Greta Gerwig is directing the pic, with Robbie playing the titular role and Gosling playing Ken. No word yet on who Ferrera will play.

Gerwig also co-wrote script with Noah Baumbach.

Plot details are unknown, but given Gerwig’s track record as a director, one can expect that this won’t be your typical take on the doll’s story. Robbie is producing the film under her LuckyChap Entertainment production banner along with LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley. Robbie Brenner also will produce through Mattel, as will David Heyman via Heyday Films. LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara and Mattel’s Ynon Kreiz are executive producers.

Ryan Gosling To Play Ken Opposite Margot Robbie In ‘Barbie’ Movie.

Margot Robbie’s Barbie movie looks to have found its Ken. Sources tell Deadline that Ryan Gosling is in final negotiations to play the iconic Mattel character in Warner Bros’ movie centered on the classic doll line. Greta Gerwig is directing the pic, with Robbie playing the titular role.

Given his busy schedule, Gosling initially passed on playing the part, but insiders add that as pre-production dragged out and the studio remained persistent with him being their only choice, an opening in his schedule appeared, allowing him to sign on.

With Gosling close to signing on, the film looks to be on the verge of a greenlight, and the hope would be to shoot at the top of 2022. Gerwig co-wrote the script with Noah Baumbach.

Plot details are unknown at this time, but given Gerwig’s track record as a director, one can expect that this won’t be your typical take on the doll’s story.

Robbie is producing the film under her LuckyChap Entertainment production banner along with LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley, Mattel’s Robbie Brenner and David Heyman. LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara and Mattel’s Ynon Kreiz are executive producers.
