The producer, 48, opened up about where 'Barbie' could go next at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards
Mark Ronson wants to take Barbie to Broadway!
The songwriter, 48, shared that he would be open to making a Barbie musical following his success with the movie's soundtrack at the 2024 Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters, Ronson said he "absolutely" wanted to be involved in any musical version of the film.
"I'm just waiting for the call,” he added. “It would be amazing. Greta basically made a musical that's without calling it a musical, so we would love it.”
“I think that we love music so much and we also love comedy. That's our other bomb, but we've never been able to merge them,” Ronson told reporters about the song performed by Ryan Gosling in the film.
“I think Greta and Noah's script was so inspiring, literally put it down and that song came to us pretty quickly," he continued. "So I don't know if we'll be as lucky to get that kind of a script every time, but we really did love working on this.”
"Once we saw Ryan's performance as well, we were still making the song. We were like, ‘Oh my God, we're going to have to dress the song up in the equivalent of a white mink and two sunglasses,' " he continued. "And then we called Slash… basically we were so inspired by everything.”
For his acceptance speech on Sunday, Ronson thanked Gosling, 43, for his performance on the power ballad.
"Ryan Gosling, this is as much your award as ours," Ronson said to the actor, who jokingly faked a deadpan reaction when the award was announced. "You made the audience fall in love with this song with your matchless performance, so thank you."

Speaking of director Greta Gerwig, he said, "The fact that you carved out 11 minutes for this prog-rock, power-ballad, dream-ballet, shred fest so the boys could cry and hold hands a little too, we're really forever in your debt for that.”
