According to L’Officiel, the actor is in final talks to take on the role of the iconic Mattel doll in the upcoming movie directed by Greta Gerwig.
While he initially passed on the role due to scheduling conflicts, cast and crew changes in the development stage forced production to push the start of the filming. However, in light of these delays, Warner Bros. continued pursuing Gosling as their top choice for the role and the actor was eventually able to find time between other projects.
In July, Variety reported that the movie was slated to begin filming in 2022 with a release scheduled for the following year.
Gerwig will direct and co-write the script with her partner Noah Baumbach.

Margot Robbie will star as the titular figure and serve as a producer through her production company LuckyChaps.
This is exciting! We can’t wait to see the movie and relive our childhood!
