At first I thought that this was a joke, because I didn’t think that they would be making a live action Barbie movie. But then again, why not. When I realized that it was reality, I may have jumped on my bed.
Guys- Amy Schumer will be playing the iconic doll in a live action Barbie movie.
I shit you not.
The movie is a Sony movie and set for 2018. Amy is putting her mark on the script. We can’t wait to see how she brings her trademark sense of humor to this movie.
We are stoked.
What’s it going to be about? Well according to Deadline, “Barbie gets kicked out, basically because she’s not perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mold. She then goes on an adventure in the real world and by the time she returns to Barbieland to save it, she has gained the realization that perfection comes on the inside, not the outside, and that the key to happiness is belief in one self, free of the obligation to adhere to some unattainable standard of perfection.”
We are stoked. If there is anyone that can embody Barbie, and give it the sense of female empowerment it needs – that’s Amy.
