The 'Levitating' hitmaker, who will make her big screen debut in spy thriller 'Argylle', reportedly will join Margot, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell and Saoirse Ronan in the live-action adventure of Mattel dolls.

AceShowbiz - Dua Lipa has landed a role in the "Barbie" movie. If a new report is to be believed, the "Levitating" hitmaker has been cast in the the live-action adventure of Mattel dolls opposite Margot Robbie.

The 26-year-old pop star will make her big screen debut in the spy thriller "Argylle" later this year and will cement her film star status with a part in Greta Gerwig's movie about the iconic doll, with filming taking place in the U.K. A film insider told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column, "Dua is making waves in both music and movies."

"She really impressed in 'Argylle' and word spread around Hollywood about how good she was," the so-called insider continued. "Now she has joined the cast of 'Barbie' alongside big names including Margot, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell and Saoirse Ronan."

The source went on saying, "Although 'Argylle' is a big film in its own right, 'Barbie' will be a breakthrough part for Dua because there is so much hype around it." The informant added, "Dua is quickly proving there is far more than her than just being a pop star. She has an exciting future ahead of her in films."

The script is still under wraps but is said to be about a doll who gets kicked out of Barbie Land for not being perfect enough. Margot will not be the only Barbie in the film, as Issa Rae and Hari Nef will play other incarnations of the Mattel doll.

Simu Liu, who plays a version of Ken in the film, recently revealed how an agent told him that the project has one of the best scripts he has ever read. The "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" star recalled, "He said, 'If I could stake my career on any one script, it's the 'Barbie' script. I really think you should do it.' "
