Amy Schumer Exits The Barbie Movie

Amy Schumer has dropped out of Sony's Barbie movie, in which she was supposed to play the lead character.

"Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts," Schumer said Thursday 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."

Schumer, who had joined the project back in December, managed to polish the script by Hilary Winston before departing.

"We respect and support Amy’s decision," a spokesperson for Sony said. "We look forward to bringing Barbie to the world and sharing updates on casting and filmmakers soon."

Produced by Mattel, Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald, and Amy Pascal, the Barbie movie's goals are to try and put a contemporary spin on beauty, feminism, and identity. Basically, the movie will try to address all of the image issues that have plagued the plastic doll in more recent times.

Currently without a director, the movie is set to come out in June 29, 2018.
