Anne Hathaway in talks to star in Barbie, replacing Amy Schumer

Sony Wants Anne Hathaway For 'Barbie' Live-Action Film

(Buckle your seat belts as you ready for...Cleaning Spray II.) And you've likely heard, over a long development process, and the addition then subtraction of Amy Schumer, Barbie is amongst the commodities to soon be turned into a film.

It looks like Anne Hathaway is all set to live the life of a "Barbie" doll.

Instead, the plot will follow the awkward protagonist who gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being flawless enough and ends up in a real-world adventure.

After months of searching, it's rumored Sony is ready to fill the void with Oscar victor Anne Hathaway! With her being an Oscar victor and this being a movie based on a doll based on a German erotic novelty gift and all, Hathaway reportedly agreed to negotiations as long as she got to hand-pick a director. The Oscar victor would replace previously reported star Amy Schumer in the project.

Should things pan out, Hathaway would portray the iconic Mattel character and Australian filmmaker Alethea Jones (Fun Mom Dinner) would direct.




Yes, Oscar victor Anne Hathaway may be playing Barbie. She is also set to star in "Ocean's 8" with Sarah Paulson and Rihanna.

Though Hathaway is well known for her dramatic roles, she's no stranger to comedy, having starred in films like The Princess Diaries and Bride Wars in the past.

Barbie is scheduled to see release on June 29, 2018. Sony will have to find another leading lady should Hathaway's filming schedule is a problem for "Barbie".

Prior to shooting the action film - which also stars Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Sarah Paulson - Hathaway opened up about why the project was a good first movie to jump into after giving birth.
