"Amy Schumer Drops Out of ‘Barbie’ Movie" : Trooper hardest hit

“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” the actress 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.”


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

A barbie movie. Lights out, it's over.

Ghost Town (2008) was surprisingly good, among the ongoing survey of dregs watched, owing to some good lines.

I have a huge backlog of dregs to watch, not being able to quite bring myself to pop them in the player. "Maybe later."

Sometimes you're surprised.

Fat Barbie? Did I miss something? She probably does have a gay boyfriend named Ken though....

That is some serious punditry there rh.

Too much makeup.

Her rosy cheek has that plastic barbie glow. She could be SJW Barbie. Does she shave her pits?

That's an easy fix. Some of the face parts are interchangable: link

She was going to play Barbie's fat, whore, alcoholic, sister.

There is a movie about a doll? Barbie?

They were considering Amy Schumer to be Barbie?!?! Are they blind! (very funny Chick)

I remember when the Barbie doll came out. One of my best friends and that time had an older sister who was 12 at the time and said she much too old to play with dolls (sniff)

Her name was Barbara Dahl. Barbie Dahl. Man she hated those dolls because of all the teasing she got from her younger sisters and sister's friend (me).

Barbie Dahl? That name rings a bell.

Barbie Dahl, a Rabel Rouser.

Sony didn't learn their lesson last year?

Klaus Barbie?

Barbara Eden would have made a plausible Barbie. Not potato face. Who would be potato face's Ken, Kevin James?

Klaus Nomi would've made an ideal homo Barbie. A Barbie in constant hysteric mode. Which is how he played out his string.

Oh god now. It's the only thing that makes her bearable enough to look at.

Amy Schumer is like a lot of entertainers who get a burst of success and it goes to their heads. She is a notorious joke thief and egomaniac. Just a putz. About what you would expect of a Schumer.

I don't know if you saw her big movie "Train Wreck" but it really told the tale of her life and people like her. Empty. Nasty. Icky.

She should scale back her performances for a while. Leave the Trump hate to another hose bag like Sarah Silverman.

She is a blatant joke thief. Ask Carlos Mencia what happens to joke thieves. Better yet, ask Joe Rogan what he thinks of joke thieves.
