Will Anne Hathaway Replace Amy Schumer In Sony's 'Barbie' Movie?

Anne Hathaway Oscar unhappy

Schumer at first boarded the film in December at the end of the day dropped out, refering to planning clashes.

Anne Hathaway may be entering a life in plastic.

Although the release date could still easily shift, especially in the absence of a confirmed director or star, the Barbie movie is now set to hit the big screen on June 29, 2018. The film will follow Barbie as she gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being ideal enough, landing in a real-world adventure. THR states that Hathaway was "integral" in the search for a filmmaker, and handpicked Jones in the end.

Hathaway and Jones seem like a promising duo to take on the long-gestating adaptation of the Barbie toy. The Oscar victor is replacing Amy Schumer in the role.

In the tradition of films like Splash, Enchanted and Big, the Barbie movie reportedly will find the fashion doll, launched in 1959, banished from Barbieland for not being flawless enough and thrown into a real-world adventure.

Hathaway, who won an Oscar in 2013 for "Les Miserables", most recently appeared in the Neon sci-fi film "Colossal".

Barbie is scheduled to see release on June 29, 2018.

Amy Pascal, Walter F. Parkes, and Laurie MacDonald are producing the Barbie movie while Mattel's Richard Dickson is executive producing. She likely wouldn't agree to tentatively star if she didn't think she could make it work, though, so expect Hathaway to finally bring Barbie to the big screen. Her other upcoming movies include Ocean's Eight and Nasty Women. The actress is repped by CAA and Sloane Offer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She is repped by Paradigm.
