You'll NEVER Believe Who Is Set To Play BARBIE In New Movie!

There is a Barbie movie coming and while Amy Schumer was originally cast in the role but has now left that position.

But it now looks like Anne Hathaway will be taking the role and getting behind the pink dream convertible.

The Oscar winner is currently in negotiations to star in the feature project which will see the classic Barbie story turned on its head.


The new movie will see a contemporary spin on the toy with an emphasis on feminism and identity.

The script will tell a story of a woman that slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit into the perfect land of Barbies and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset. The fish-out-of-water tale is supposed to be in the vein of Big or Enchanted. 

The movie is set to be released on June 29, 2018 but could be pushed back if Hathaway’s schedule doesn’t it in.
