He’s the latest to join the all-star cast.
The new film stars co-producer Margot Robbie in the titular role, opposite Ryan Gosling as Ken. It is not yet clear what Liu’s role will be, according to Deadline, and the plot is being kept under wraps.
Ugly Betty and Superstore star America Ferrera has also been announced as part of the cast, but her role, similarly, remains a mystery.
Little Women‘s Greta Gerwig is directing the movie based on the famous Mattel doll line, and she co-wrote the script with her partner and filmmaker Noah Baumbach.

Speaking about the project, producer Josey McNamara said: “You think you know what that movie is with Margot as Barbie, but Greta and Noah have subverted it, and we can’t wait to get into that one.” (via The Hollywood Reporter.)
And Robbie added in an interview with Vogue: “It comes with a lot of baggage! And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it.”
Liu himself is currently set to appear in Andy Fickman’s One True Loves, adapted from the Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel of the same name. His co-stars include Hamilton actress Phillipa Soo, who plays his love interest. He will also star in canine adventure movie Arthur the King.
With filming set to take place in London in early 2022, we can expect a release date of 2023 for the new Barbie movie.
