Gag: Amy Schumer to play Barbie in Sony’s live action film

I wonder if they’ll film this movie in Spain? That’s where Schumer said she’d move to if Trump was elected. Course, like many celebrities, the hypocrite never did move.

Mattel must be so proud...

Mattel must be so proud…

From Daily Mail: Amy Schumer has landed the lead role in the upcoming Barbie movie, Deadline reported. Sony’s live action film based on the beloved Mattel toy is due out in 2018.

According to the site, the film will be a ‘fish out of water’ story in the mould of Splash of Big. It is set in Barbieland, a world inhabited by the many different version of the doll – more than 180 – whose names, personalities and professions are defined by the particular outfit they wear.

However Schumer’s Barbie – who isn’t ‘perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mould’ – is an outcast.

She then goes on an adventure in the real world, before returning to save her hometown, armed with the knowledge that real beauty is on the inside, and the key to happiness is freeing oneself from an unattainable standard of perfection.

The site claimed the film had gone through many writers and incarnations, before a funny female empowerment plot caught Schumer’s eye and she signed on.

In her 57 years, more than one billion Barbies have been sold worldwide, cementing her place as a pop culture icon.

Let's hope Schumer doesn't do this in the movie to prove she "doesn't quite fit the mould."

  6. Looks like a snake on her bra. More like a “Bra-bie” movie than Barbie.

  7. No wonder Ken ran off with a Monster High girl. He got a load of new Barbie in her birthday suit.

  8. Perhaps folks are starting to eat healthy home made food instead of the packaged garbage sold by multi-nationals. Is this their way to fight back, “Barbie is fat”?

    • Molly, by my lights she was weird or ruined when she was introduced. To me she appeared slightly better off than a concentration camp victim, and one could never have a normal relationship w/someone so fragile. I guess I’m still a bush bunny, even after 73 years….

  12. Ha-Ha-Ha. In the pic she looks like she was trying for a 6-pack stomach but overshot and got a 12-pack. She’s probably sitting down cause she’d fall off of those hooker shoes. Hell would be being reincarnated as her thong.

    Next, it will be Rosie playing Ken.

  16. Lets all hope the world gives Amy her due and boycott ANYTHING she participates in. She really set the world on fire with her Bud Lite commercials. Wonder how Old Navy is faring? Foul mouth Barbie anyone??
