Actress Lily Collins has been cast in a new live-action movie that pays homage to another Mattel doll - Pocket Polly.
The original pocket-sized doll with a case that doubled as her home, wardrobe, and even housed a pet dog, was invented by Bluebird Toys in 1989. Later, Mattel acquired the patent and started producing Pocket Polly in the United States. The line underwent numerous rebranding initiatives and strategic changes that eventually led to the project's closure in 2012. Now, Mattel wants to recount the doll's story in a cinematic format. To play the role of Polly, they've enlisted Lily Collins.
The script for the movie is being crafted by Lena Dunham, who is also set to direct the film. It's an exciting development for fans of the iconic doll and for those eager to see Collins' interpretation of the beloved character.
