The premise of the new movie (made by Mattel and Sony) is that a "normal woman" is living in a land of ideal Barbie people, until the penny drops and she realises that she doesn't fit in. "Hathaway smathaway jkjk she's flawless!" she wrote. In 2016, the role originally went to actress and comedian Amy Schumer, who had to exit the project three months later due to scheduling issues.

The Trainwreck star posted a makeup-free selfie on social media to respond to the news of Hathaway's potential casting. "Can't wait to see it!" she wrote in the caption alongside her photo. Her announcement about departing from the film reportedly put a strain on Sony to meet deadlines not only on the film, but on the obvious marketing demands that come with it including Mattel commitment to produce merchandise tie-ins with the film.

In a statement, she said, "Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen".

"Very very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammys and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. It's an illusion", she added. The publication also claimed Australian director Alethea Jones is in talks to helm the comedy, though studio reps say no deal is in place yet.

The film is tentatively set for a summer 2018 release. Sony has been developing the project for several years.
