Life in plastic, it's fantastic.

Margot Robbie has been on the Oscar hunt lately, starring as Tonya Harding in I, Tonya last year and as Queen Elizabeth I in Mary Queen of Scots alongside Saoirse Ronan (in theatre now).

But the Australia actress has been confirmed for a slightly different role in the coming years. Robbie has been confirmed for the title role in Warner Bros' upcoming live-action Barbie film, which is set for release in 2020.

"Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery, said Margot. "Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president.

"I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide."

Robbie has had to switch up her look lately to star in films like Suicide Squad or Mary Queen Of Scots, but as far as casting Barbie goes, it's fair to say that Robbie is pretty much spot on.

Now let's hope Aqua make a comeback to do the soundtrack.
