Barbie: Anne Hathaway new top choice

Sony’s planned Barbie movie was all set to go ahead with Amy Schumer in the title role, before scheduling conflicts led her to pull out of the project. Since then, things seem to have been in limbo for a bit.

However, it looks like there’s progress again. It’s now being reported that Anne Hathaway is top of the shortlist to play Barbie, although as of now, no offer to her is believed to have been made. There’s still some work to do there.

Still, if she signs onto the project, she’ll be playing the role of the misfit Barbie in a world of otherwise perfect ones. Currently in line to direct the film is Alethea Jones, with Hilary Winston said to be writing the script.

As we hear more on the movie, we’ll pass the information your way.
