Amy Schumer drops out of 'Barbie' movie due to scheduling conflicts
"I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen"
"Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts," she said. "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."
"We respect and support Amy's decision," a spokesperson for Sony said in a statement. "We look forward to bringing Barbie to the world and sharing updates on casting and filmmakers soon."
The film, which is slated for release in June 2018, has yet to find its director. It remains uncertain if Sony will keep Amy and her sister Kim Caramele's partial rewrite of the script now that Amy is Barbie no longer.
