In a recent revelation that has left fans buzzing, it was reported that Timothée Chalamet was originally slated to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Barbie movie. According to Deadline, Greta Gerwig, the director of the film, had planned to include Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan in the Margot Robbie-starring film. However, due to scheduling conflicts, this ultimately did not pan out.
Gerwig, who previously worked with Chalamet and Ronan in Lady Bird and Little Women, expressed her disappointment at not being able to include the actors in the Barbie movie. Despite this setback, the film boasts a star-studded cast and is eagerly anticipated by audiences worldwide.
The Missed Cameo Opportunity
Gerwig opened up about her plans for Chalamet and Ronan in a recent interview with CinemaBlend. She said:
Well, it was always going to have to be a sort of smaller thing because [Saoirse] was actually producing at the time, which I am so proud of her for. And of course, it’s brilliant. But it was going to be a specialty cameo. I was also going to do a specialty cameo with Timmy, and both of them couldn’t do it and I was so annoyed. But I love them so much.
The news of the missed cameo opportunity has left fans wondering what could have been. Chalamet, known for his roles in Call Me By Your Name and Dune, and Ronan, known for her roles in Brooklyn and Lady Bird, would have added an extra layer of star power to the film.
The Busy Schedules of Chalamet and Ronan
At the time of the Barbie movie’s production, both Chalamet and Ronan had other commitments. Chalamet was busy playing Willy Wonka in Wonka and filming Dune: Part Two, while Ronan was occupied producing her first film titled The Outrun.
Despite the missed opportunity to include Chalamet and Ronan, the Barbie movie boasts a star-studded cast that includes Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Will Ferrell, and many more.
