Lilly Collins To Play POLLY POCKET In Live-Action Movie; Lena Dunham Will Direct

Girls star Lena Dunham is set to write and direct a live-action Polly Pocket movie for Mattel and MGM, with Mank and Emily in Paris actress Lily Collins on board to play the pin-sized Polly.

There's a live-action Polly Pocket movie in the works from Mattel and MGM, and Lilly Collins is set to play the pint-sized lead.

The Wrap reports that Collins (Mank, Emily in Paris) has signed on to star in the project, which will "follow a young girl and a pocket-sized woman who form a friendship." Girls actress Lena Dunham will write, direct and produce via her Good Thing Going company.

“Polly Pocket was responsible for countless hours of childhood escapism for me – Polly gave me a tiny world of magic and autonomy to narrate, so it’s pretty poetic to be tackling these same ideas now as a director collaborating with the brilliant Lily Collins, Robbie Brenner, Mattel and MGM. I’m so thrilled to bring to bear both my love of this historic property and also my deep-seated belief that young women need smart playful films that speak to them without condescension,” Dunham said.

Collins also shared her enthusiasm: “I’m so excited to partner with this inspiring powerhouse of a team. Developing this project with Robbie, Lena, Mattel and MGM to reintroduce Polly in a fun, modern way has been such a treat. As a child who was obsessed with Polly Pocket, this is a real dream come true and I can’t wait to bring these tiny toys to the big screen.”

Polly Pocket hit shelves over 30 years ago and proved massively popular as a "microscale doll" with various accessories. She went on to appear in her own Family Channel animated series in 2018, which is currently on Netflix.

Other Mattel properties currently in development include American Girl, Barbie, Barney, Hot Wheels, Magic 8 Ball, Masters of the Universe, Wishbone and Thomas & Friends.
