28 Jul – Following their 2021 announcement, Mattel has now confirmed that the upcoming "Polly Pocket" is now in the works.
The news was shared by Mattel Films' Robbie Brenner, who also produced "Barbie" and all developing Mattel projects, saying that the movie has a script now and that it is "great".
It is noted that the movie will have Lily Collins playing the lead, with "Girls" creator Lena Dunham directing.
"First of all, they are two of my favorite ladies ever," said Brenner, referring to the two women. "It's been an amazing collaboration. Lena is so collaborative and rolls up her sleeves and really likes to roll around in notes and listen. She's incredible. Lily is so smart and so specific and so productorial. It's just been an incredible collaboration, so we are thrilled about it."
"Hopefully, we'll be making that at some point in the future," she added.
Back in 2021, Collins expressed her elation over the idea of playing the tiny character on the big screen, writing, "I'm so excited to partner with this inspiring powerhouse of a team. Developing this project with Robbie, Lena, Mattel and MGM to reintroduce Polly in a fun, modern way has been such a treat. As a child who was obsessed with Polly Pocket, this is a real dream come true and I can't wait to bring these tiny toys to the big screen."
