Hathaway had been in the mix shortly after Amy Schumer left the project in March.
And though we have until June 2018 before the Barbie movie is released in theaters, Hathaway is staying busy until then. The script told of a woman that slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn't fit into the ideal land of Barbies and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset. Sure, why not. Hathaway can do comedy very well and she's not afraid to take the piss out of herself either, so yeah, this could work.
Producing the project are Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal, while Richard Dickson, president and COO of Mattel, is executive producing.
Set to premiere next summer, Sony's upcoming live action film is set to tell the story of what happens after Baribe gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being flawless enough.
US Navy ship fires warning shots at Iranian ship in Persian Gulf
An Iranian vessel, allegedly part of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IIRGC) Navy , came within 150 yards of a U.S. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is a paramilitary force that answers directly to Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The actress' commitment to the Barbie movie may depend on her current schedule because the star's current filming commitment has her signed on to IM Global's science fiction film O2.
The forthcoming live-action film will be the first big-screen movie based on the iconic fashion doll.
Barbie will see theatrical release in the US on June 29, 2018.
