Schumer was originally attached to the project but had to drop out over “scheduling conflicts.”
Amy Schumer says that Anne Hathaway would make a “perfect” Barbie.
Schumer was originally attached to star in the Sony movie, which is described as a fish-out-of-water tale about a woman who slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit into the perfect land of Barbies and journeys to the real world.
The comedian dropped out in March over “scheduling conflicts.” In an Instagram post, Schumer gave her blessing to Hathaway, who is the frontrunner for the role but still has not negotiated a deal.
Australian director Alethea Jones is in talks to direct the movie, which is being produced by Amy Pascal and has a June 29, 2018, release date.
