The upcoming Barbie movie may have found its director — and she’s no stranger to directing iconic female characters.

It looks like the long-promised film about the famous doll is finally getting off the ground, with Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie set to bring the figure to life.

The 28 year old is also expected to produce the film, which is likely to be made by Warner Bros. now that Sony is out of the picture.

It now appears as though the project has found a director who knows all about movies that have a strong feminist message — Patty Jenkins.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Wonder Woman director is the current favorite to helm the film.

The writers include Diablo Cody of Juno, Olivia Milch from Ocean’s 8, Hilary Winston, and Inside Amy Schumer’s Kim Caramele, as well as Amy herself.

We can’t wait to meet Wonder Barbie.
