Lily Collins (Emily in Paris, Mank) signed an agreement to play the lead role in the film Polly Pocket which, as the name suggests, is based on the popular 80s toy.
Lily Collins will star in a Polly Pocket movie
The film adaptation will be written and directed by the creator of Girls, Lena Dunham. Collins, in addition to being the star of the film, will produce the film and, according to what reported by Variety, “The film will focus on a girl and a pocket-sized woman who form a friendship.”
Here are the words released by Collins on the occasion of the announcement:
“As a little girl obsessed with Polly Pockets, this is a real dream come true and I can’t wait to bring these little toys to the big screen.”
Dunham then added:
“Polly Pocket was responsible for countless hours of childhood escapism for me – Polly gave me a little world of magic and autonomy to tell, so it’s quite poetic to tackle those same ideas now, as a director collaborating with the brilliant Lily Collins, Robbie Brenner, Mattel and MGM. I am so excited to assert both my love for this historic property and my ingrained belief that young women need intelligent playful films that speak to them without condescension. “
