Director Greta Gerwig is currently helming upcoming Americal film Barbie starring Margot Robbie as the titular Mattel doll. While the makers are tight lipped about the project, the director recently opened about making of the film.

In Dua Lipa's podcast At Your Service, Greta said that she is both "excited" and "terrified" about Barbie. "It was terrifying. There’s something about starting from that place where it’s like ‘well, anything is possible.’ It felt like vertigo starting to write it. Like, where do you even begin? What would be the story?” the director was quoted as saying by a Variety report.

Greta has written the film along with Noah Baumbach. "That feeling that I had, was knowing that it would be really interesting terror. Usually that’s where the best stuff is. I am terrified of that. Anything where you’re like, ‘This could be a career-ender,’ then you’re like, ‘OK, I probably should do it,'" she added.

Besides Margot, the film also stars Ryan Gosling as Ken, along with America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Kingsley Ben-Adir, among others.

Barbie will release on July 21, 2023.
