Margot Robbie wants to work with this director, and we’re hopeful

Barbie's Margot Robbie named one of the best directors of all time as a filmmaker she'd like to make a movie with next, and we would love to see it happen.

Margot Robbie in Barbie

We’re having trouble imagining a world where we’re not celebrating the pastel pinks of the approaching Barbie release date every day with a well-timed ‘Come on Barbie let’s go party’, but Margot Robbie is already looking ahead to future new movies. And she wants to work with one of the people on our best directors of all time list.

Margot Robbie has famously avoided the blonde bombshell typecast following her breakout role in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, appearing in DCU movies as one of the fan-favorite best DC characters, Harley Quinn, and earning two Oscars nominations for her dramatic work.

After Barbie comes out, she has her sights set on possibly collaborating with acclaimed There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson, whose work appears on many critics’ and film fans’ best movies of all time lists.

“Greta [Gerwig] was on that list for a long time,” she told Vogue. “Damien [Chazelle] was on that list for a long time,” she says, referring to Babylon‘s director. “PTA [Paul Thomas Anderson] is the big one I haven’t ticked.”
