Hot Pink Heist

Barbie and Ken reunite as a pair of thieves

Barbie and Ken are reuniting, but this time, they’re leaving Barbieland to steal in the real world.

While that may not be the premise of a Barbie sequel from Greta Gerwig, Margot Robbie and Ryan Golding will be on the screen as another couple, a couple of thieves. The two Oscar nominees will play parents to Danny (George Clooney) and Debbie (Sandra Bullock) Ocean in an Ocean’s Eleven prequel.

Set in the 1960s, the proud parents are teaching their children how to be upstanding citizens. These lessons include things like brushing your teeth before bed, minding your manners, and stealing from the rich. Well, while the last one might not be a part of the “parental dos and don’ts” list, Robbie and Gosling’s characters are expected to show their kids how to pull off a successful heist. 

The film comes after the release of the Clooney-led Ocean’s trilogy, consisting of Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen. In 2018, fans of the franchise were introduced to Danny’s sister Debbie, who led an all-woman team of thieves for a heist at the Met Gala in the spin-off Eight.

Now, with the announcement of the prequel, Ocean’s fans get to see how Danny and Debbie acquired their heist skillset. And Barbie fans get their Barbie and Ken back together again. 

Barbie made waves when it premiered earlier in July, grabbing the top spot in the box office. With awards season underway, the film has already snagged Grammy noms for its soundtrack and created plenty of Oscar buzz for Gerwig, Robbie, and Gosling. 

The dynamic duo of Robbie and Gosling will return to the silver screen in the next installment of the Ocean’s franchise. While the rest of the cast hasn’t been announced yet, fans of Gerwig’s film are overjoyed by this Barbie reunion. 

She’s a Barbie girl, he’s just Ken, they’re a pair of thieves, and we love to see it.
