35-year-old female comedienne Amy Schumer just announced that she will be completely DROPPING out of the Barbie movie due to conflicts with her schedule!
Sony Pictures are still planning on producing the live-action Barbie flick and it will have to have a new leading lady! Schumer says in a statement to Variety: “Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. 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.”
The live-action BARBIE movie will follow a character who is thrown out of Barbie-land for not being perfect enough! She then lands in the real world and embarks on a real-world adventure…Amy had done some edits to the original script though it’s not known whether her edits will remain with the new lead.
