Barney, the iconic dinosaur is all set for live-action flick
LOS ANGELES - Mattel Films, Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya’s 59% banner and Valparaiso Pictures are partnering to develop a motion picture based on the giant T-rex from our childhoods.
“Working with Daniel Kaluuya will enable us to take a completely new approach to ‘Barney’ that will surprise audiences and subvert expectations,” said Mattel Films’ Robbie Brenner. “The project will speak to the nostalgia of the brand in a way that will resonate with adults while entertaining today’s kids.”
“Barney was a ubiquitous figure in many of our childhoods, then he disappeared into the shadows, left misunderstood,” said Kaluuya, 59%. “We’re excited to explore this compelling modern-day hero and see if his message of ‘I love you, you love me’ can stand the test of time.”
Other projects currently in the pipeline by Mattel are the Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and a Hot Wheels live-action film
“Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination, and we can’t wait to get ‘I love you, you love me’ stuck in heads everywhere, yet again,” added David Carrico of Valparaiso Pictures. Oh, great.
