Comedienne Amy Schumer is set to star in a Barbie action flick about the famous Mattel doll. Sony’s upcoming live-action film may be about the iconic blonde toy but there is a twist!
Schumer is set to play the lead role which is centred around an imperfect Barbie who lives in Barbieland among the 180-plus Barbie characters, but doesn’t quite fit in with the others. Because this Barbie is different and marches to the beat of her own drum, the others kick her out of Barbieland. They accuse her on not being perfect enough to live amongst them!
Upon leaving Barbieland, she ends up in the real world and has all sorts of adventures and makes new friends. She begins to realise that the only real way to be happy is to stop trying to achieve the unattainable standard of perfection and to just learn to love yourself. Armed with this new knowledge she heads back to Barbieland to inform the others.
Who better to take on the role than Schumer who is the perfect role model for feminism and gender equality
The film is set to be produced by Walter Parkes, Lori MacDonald and Amy Pascal with production set to begin next year for a release schedule of 2018.
