Amy Schumer is set to play the iconic role of Barbie in a live action film from Sony. Schumer will star and revise the script according to deadline.
The Comedienne will be in a PG film as Barbie, in a story which will see the doll get kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect.
This is going to be a female empowerment film for a younger audience so who knows if Schumer will get many jokes past the studio in her revised script which she will be doing with her sister.
One thing we know for certain is that Schumer’s show Inside Amy Schumer is incredibly clever and well written so we have every faith in her ability.
There is no director attached as yet but the front runner seems to be Thea Sharrock, who helmed Me Before You.
No release date for the film has been announced yet.
