Amy Schumer to Headline Sonys Live-Action Barbie Movie

Submitted by: Odio @ 04:29 PM | Friday, December 2, 2016 | (url: http://www.coming...)

First announced for the big screen in 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Mattel and Parkes+MacDonald/Image Nations upcoming live-action Barbie movie has finally landed a leading lady in Amy Schumer (Trainwreck, Inside Amy Schumer).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Schumer will play a misfit living in a land of perfect Barbies who comes to the real world where her being/looking different turns into an asset. The film is said by the trade to be, a contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity in the comedic-fantasy vein of Splash, Enchanted or Big.

Although Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) was previously attached to write the film, the current screenplay comes from Hilary Winston (The LEGO Ninjago Movie, the Bad Teacher TV series). Schumer and her sister Kim Caramele are expected to rewrite the script, and a director is currently being sought.

From princess to president, mermaid to movie star, Barbie has done it all through her more than 150 careers, she has gained valuable experiences and shown her fans that anything is possible for a modern woman. The toy line launched in 1959, and brings in $2 billion dollars annually. The comedic and contemporary film marks the second collaboration between Sony Pictures and Mattel, which are currently developing a film adaptation of Masters of the Universe, based on Mattels popular action figures.

Barbie is being produced by Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal.

I was under the impression that Pascal had been axed due to her involvement with redlighting that turd they plopped out earlier this year, Ghostbusters 2016.

Hoping this one flops too, getting tired of hamfisted social commentary in films, not that this is something I'm going to go watch anyways. Guess it'll give them a talking point of, "See women GET US, they LOVE our message, men just don't get it because they're misogynists, and because of patriarchy."

Finally we have a fatter white woman playing Barbie. Now the adopted Vietnamese daughters of progressive lesbian couples have a movie that praises diversity! I'm sure an impossibly beautiful supporting cast and a plot where she winds up with a guy way out of her league won't have longstanding psychological ramifications.

Might as well call it "Getting Low Self-Esteem: The Movie".

Sorry honey, you're well into your 16th minute. Sit down and let someone else have their turn.

I love it how she goes from making jokes about Mexican's, to then apologizing about said jokes of Mexican's, to being this "Sweetheart" because she has placed herself in the elite Hollywood world.

What a hateable pig cunt.
