Hath­away to re­place Schumer?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Ac­tor Anne Hath­away (above) is in ne­go­ti­a­tions to re­place ac­tor-co­me­dian Amy Schumer (in­set) in the Bar­bie movie. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for the pro­duc­tion house said the cast­ing is pre­ma­ture, as sched­ul­ing ar­range­ments have not been worked out, re­ported Va­ri­ety.

Aus­tralian direc­tor Alethea Jones is in talks to helm the com­edy. The big screen adap­ta­tion of Mat­tel’s iconic toy line was orig­i­nally ex­pected to start pro­duc­tion on June 23, but Schumer’s busy cal­en­dar de­layed it. She later left the project due to sched­ul­ing con­flicts. The pro­duc­tion house in­tends to stick to its June 29, 2018 re­lease date, though it’s un­clear clear when pro­duc­tion would start.

The Bar­bie movie is said to be in the vein of Splash, Big and En­chanted. In it, the main char­ac­ter gets kicked out of Bar­bieland for not be­ing per­fect enough and lands in a real-world ad­ven­ture.
