According to reports, Gosling initially turned down the role due to his busy schedule.
Ryan Gosling could play Ken in an upcoming movie based on the classic Mattel doll.
According to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, the "La La Land" actor is in "final negotiations". Outlets reported that 40-year-old Gosling initially gave up the role due to his busy schedule, but later signed up after the project was pushed back and the studio "persevered" with his participation.
The "Barbie" film is produced by Margot Robbie, 31, - who will play the title character - and her production company LuckyChap Entertainment. Mattel Films and Warner Bros will also produce the film.

Details of the premise of the film are currently unknown, but the director is Greta Gerwig, who has worked on major projects such as "Little Women", "Isle of Dogs" and "Lady Bird". Gerwig wrote the film together with her partner and frequent collaborator Noah Baumbach.
Gosling, who shares two children with Eva Mendes, recently completed filming on the Netflix movie "The Gray Man," starring Chris Evans.
Gosling said he has not shown all of his films to his daughters during a recent interview with Modern Luxury Riviera Orange County.
"I'm in no hurry if you watch one of my films," said Gosling. "However, Eva made a children's film called My Brother the Pig, which was very popular with our girls. I can only recommend it warmly, by the way; she is great at it."
