Amy Schumer Cast as Barbie in Sony's Adaptation of the Famous Toy Lineby HaydnSpurrell
Amy Schumer will play Barbie in Sony's adaptation of the Mattel toy line, as the studio continues searching for a director. Schumer will also rework the script alongside her sister Kim Caramele.
The film is being described as a family comedy in the same vein as Splash, and Enchanted. THR brings the news that Schumer has joined the film, which has been developing for a few years.
With no narrative to assign to Barbie, its got to be built from the ground up, understandably. Sony will want to pull it off, and probably in the hopes of making future installments.
