Anne Hathaway is in talks to replace actress Amy Schumer for the upcoming live-action "Barbie" After losing Schumer due to scheduling conflicts, Sony looks to have found its replacement for the upcoming live-action "Barbie" with Hathaway.

Australian "Fun Mom Dinner" director Alethea Jones is in talks to helm the comedy. Studio representatives said the casting is premature as scheduling arrangements have not been worked out and there is no deal as yet.

The big screen adaptation of Mattel's iconic toy line was originally expected to start production on June 23, but Schumer's busy schedule included a promotional tour for her new Fox comedy "Snatched," as well as shooting for Rebecca Miller's "She Came to Me" opposite Steve Carell.

Sony still intends to stick to its projected June 29, 2018 release date, though it's not clear when production would start. Walter F Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal are producing the film. Richard Dickson, president and COO of Mattel, is executive producing.
