Anne Hathaway is still playing Barbie – just not this year!

“Barbie”, the live-action take on the Mattel classic, has been pushed back nearly two years from Aug. 8 to May 8, 2020.

Anne Hathaway is expected to star in the project, replacing Amy Schumer who left the project last March.

Alethea Jones will direct “Barbie”, boasting a screenplay said to be in the vein of “Splash”, “Enchanted” and “Big” with “the main character getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough and winding up in a real-world adventure”, according to Variety.

Lindsey Beer, Jenny Bicks, Kim Caramele, Diablo Cody, Bert V. Royal, Hilary Winston and Schumer have all worked on the script.

Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal are producing the film.
