According to Variety, Anne Hathaway is now reportedly in talks to play Barbie in the big screen adaptation of Mattel’s legendary toy line. And if it’s true, it looks like she already has Schumer’s approval!

Schumer announced she was dropping out of the movie in March. Production for the movie was originally supposed to start in June, with a summer 2018 release.

“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” she said in a statement. “The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.”

When Schumer was originally cast for the role, in which she would be playing a Barbie who gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being “perfect enough,” she received some major backlash from haters on social media. Many criticized Schumer for not having Barbie’s slim figure, which was ironic when taking the movie’s plot into consideration.
