Variety reports that Anne Hathaway is officially in talks to star in Sony’s upcoming live action Barbie film as the iconic doll.

Hathaway is set to be taking over the titular role from Amy Schumer, who was originally set to star in the comedy, but had to back out due to scheduling conflicts.

Though many were looking forward to seeing what Schumer could have done with the role, it looks like fans are mostly pleased with the idea of Hathaway taking over. A few even took to Twitter to share their opinions on the new casting choice.

Check out their reactions below:

Set to premiere next summer, Sony’s upcoming live action film is set to tell the story of what happens after Baribe gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough. From there, she’ll have to figure out how to navigate the real world, which is sure to make for some pretty hilarious moments.



Though Hathaway is well known for her dramatic roles, she’s no stranger to comedy, having starred in films like The Princess Diaries and Bride Wars in the past. With that in mind, we’re sure she’ll do a great job at portraying Barbie on the big screen!
