Why Anne Hathaway Is the Perfect Choice to Play Barbie

Anne Hathaway Barbie Movie

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.

"Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts", Schumer said to Variety back in March. Mattel's President and COO of Richard Dickson, who over the past two years has worked to modernize the brand, will serve as executive producer. The Oscar-winning actress is in talks to star in the upcoming Barbie movie, a long-gestating project that, in its last incarnation, would have starred the stand-up comedian as a doll who gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being flawless enough.

If a deal between Sony and Hathaway will be finalized, the award-winning actress will give life to the role of the famous doll, Barbie.

Amy Schumer was previously attached to star in the film, which is slated for release on June 29, 2018.

Jones' next film, the indie comedy "Fun Mom Dinner", will be released August 4 from Momentum Pictures.

What do you think of Anne Hathaway starring as Barbie on the big screen? The pic had been billed as a fish-out-of-water tale akin to Big and Enchanted.

That actress, according to numerous insiders, is Hathaway, who won an Oscar for Les Miserables and recently wrapped Ocean's Eight. In addition, Hathaway will co-star with Rebel Wilson in "Nasty Women", MGM's remake of "Dirty Rotten Soundrels".

Amy Pascal is producing the Barbie movie with Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, as well as Mattel.
