So Hollywood’s preeminent feminist won’t be playing Barbie on the big screen after all.
We recently learned comedienne Amy Schumer decided against starring in the film version of the beloved Mattel toy.
Why? Scheduling conflicts, according to Variety which broke the news.
“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.”
Entertainment Weekly ran with that explanation. So did Deadline.com. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
