Sony announce actress set to replace Amy Schumer as Barbie”

Anne Hathaway may soon find that life in plastic, it's fantastic. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Hathaway is now in negotiations to play Barbie, with the deal dependent on whether Hathaway's schedule is amenable to Sony sticking to their planned June 29, 2018 release date.

The movie was to follow Barbie's journey and adventure in the real world, while promoting the message of body acceptance.

Diesel engines, however, have higher nitrogen oxide emission which harms human health and sulfur which harms the environment. Vehicles from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles allegedly also have defeat devices in their cars.

While it's still a little early to consider anything to be definitively in place, it would definitely be a natural fit to cast Hathaway as the lead in a live-action Barbie movie. Thankfully, while Sony still doesn't have a star attached to the project, Fun Mom Dinner's Alethea Jones has already been tagged to join the production as Barbie's director. Amy Schumer exited the role in March due to scheduling conflicts; thus, the spot has been wide open since then.

The movie is being produced by the husband/wife team of Walter Parkes and Lori MacDonald, along with former Sony studio chairman Amy Pascal (who bought the rights in 2014 while an executive). Pundits are expecting a huge marketing push from Sony and its partner, toymaker Mattel, in mid-2018. "I'm bummed, but I look forward to seeing "Barbie" on the big screen". The film has been described as being a contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity in the comedic fantasy vein of Splash, Enchanted or Big.

Anne Hathaway is looking pink.

Hathaway won her Oscar for Les Miserables, was just onscreen in Colossal and co-stars in next year's Ocean's Eight. But considering Hathaway's underrated comedy chops, she could be a good choice for the role anyway.
