Amy Schumer Announces She Will No Longer Play 'Barbie' In Upcoming Live Action Movie
Last year we were tickled pick when we learned that our fave comedian Amy Schumer would be bringing Barbie to life in a live action film.
We honestly couldn't think of anyone better to bring the sassy doll to the big screen but now our hearts are broken because she's pulled out of the movie.
“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” she said in a statement to Variety. “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.”
She could legitimately have scheduling conflicts but that is usually a codeword on Hollywood for 'some other shit has gone down'. The original press release announcing her involvement was met with a bunch of hate from the public, many of whom thought she wasn't the right fit for the role.
But we say f*ck the h8ers - Ames you woulda done great!
Anyway, super excited to see what other projects she's got in the pipeline.
