The film is described as a fish-out-of-water tale about a woman who slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn't fit into the perfect land of Barbies and journeys to the real world. Australian director Alethea Jones is in talks to direct the movie, which is being produced by Amy Pascal. The flick is slated for June 29, 2018 release. (ANI)
