AMY SCHUMER BARBIE MOVIE IS NOT A STUDIO EXEC STORY
HOLLYWOOD – The story that Amy Schumer is to star in a Barbie movie is not a parody story written by us.
Amy Schumer is actually supposed to be appearing in a live action movie based on the Barbie Doll. This is a real thing and not something that we put out for shits and giggles. Hollywood’s gone so far beyond parody, the best we can do it stand still and hope they lap us. The Sony movie will feature Schumer in the role of the Mattel doll which has done so much for body image over the decades. In a way, we have to look on in admiration as Hollywood consistently comes up with ideas that we would have dismissed as too far out for us. Then again we could be wrong. The Lego Movie looked like a joke, but it turned out to be a really funny one. And intentionally too. So who’s to say?
