Amy Schumer Weighs in on Anne Hathaway as 'Barbie'

Amy Schumer

Variety reported this week Hathaway, 34, is in negotiations to step into Barbie's heels.

She captioned the snap, "Hathaway smathaway jkjk she's ideal!"

Producers of the live-action Barbie movie have reportedly been in talks with Anne Hathaway to portray the title role, and now Amy Schumer has shared her two cents.

Back in March, Schumer revealed that she had to back out of the Barbie movie because of "scheduling conflicts".

Sony Pictures is hoping for a June 29, 2018 release.

Should Hathaway end up committing to the project, it would be a big win for Sony.

Trump has compared MS-13's "meanness" to that of al-Qaida and has promised he would rid the country of it. Trump "wants people to do their jobs, not go beyond the scope of what they should do", Sanders said.

So like us, she's excited about Hathaway possibly playing one of our favourite icons. She is then booted out of Barbie land and retreats to the real world where she has to adapt, until she finally realises that being unique is a blessing, not a curse.

We will try to reserve serious judgement till we at least see the first trailer, because despite the slightly unusual casting, we are still ridiculously excited for this movie!

What do YOU think about Anne Hathaway being cast as Barbie?

We don't know too much at the moment about what the expectations are about this movie based on the popular Mattel toy brand, though the original screenplay is supposedly centring around a doll living in an idyllic "Barbieland" who is expelled from paradise for being imperfect.

When it was first announced, many people thought a movie about Barbie sounded like a disgusting idea.
