Now it looks like Hathaway may be preparing to sport a blond wig and some very unrealistic body proportions.

Alethea Jones is in talks to direct. Amy Pascal will produce with Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Mattel.

The "Barbie" film's story follows a doll who is banished from the otherworldly Barbieland because of her unconventional appearance and attitude.

'The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners.

The negotiation is expected to be complicated, as May's minority government will face challenges at every step in the process. The couple arrived with their children George and Charlotte in Warsaw at the start of a five-day tour.

As previously reported, Schumer, 36, parted ways with the film in March due to other projects on the horizon. According to THR, the script followed "a woman that slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn't fit into the ideal land of Barbies and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset". "Barbie" will hit the screens on June 29 next year.

Academy Award victor Anne Hathaway appears to be going all the way from awesome Colossal star down to a height of about 11.5 inches.

Hathaway won her Oscar for Les Miserables, was just onscreen in Colossal and co-stars in next year's Ocean's Eight. It's not Sony's fault that Schumer walked away from Barbie, but one was hoping they might go after another under-the-radar choice as a lead. Though the world certainly doesn't need more (sometimes, as was the case for Lego, startlingly good) films based on zeitgeist-y toys and virtual symbols, there's no doubt that any non-human thing could become a movie. In addition, Hathaway will co-star with Rebel Wilson in "Nasty Women", MGM's remake of "Dirty Rotten Soundrels". She is repped by CAA and Sloane Offer.
