Lily Collins To Star As Polly Pocket In Upcoming New Movie!

Lily Collins is bringing Polly Pocket to life!

The 32-year-old Emily In Paris star was just revealed to star in a live action movie based on the popular children’s toy.

Lily will star as Polly in the movie, which will “follow a young girl and a pocket-sized woman who form a friendship,” THR reports. Lena Dunham will write and direct.

“Little Lil, big news. As a child who was obsessed with Polly Pockets, it’s a real dream come true to announce this project! I am partnering with the most inspiring powerhouse team — Robbie Brenner, @lenadunham, @mattel and @mgmstudios — to reintroduce Polly to the world in a fun, modern way… bringing these tiny toys to the big screen. Truly so excited to be coming on as both a producer and Polly herself! Can’t wait to dive into this pastel world…” Lily shared in a post on Instagram.

“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,” Lena said in a statement, via Variety. “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.”

If you missed the news, this CW actor joined Emily In Paris season two as a new love interest for Lily.
