Schumer had been attached to the Sony project since December 2016.
Though she’s spent months fending off body-shaming trolls over her casting, it turns out that Amy Schumer won’t be bringing Barbie to the big screen after she had to pull out of the forthcoming live-action movie due to schedule conflicts.
“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners,” Schumer said in a statement to Variety on Friday (March 24th). “I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.”

Emily is left completely broken-hearted when her musician boyfriend breaks up with her in favour of a life of groupies as his band takes off. They were meant to be vacationing to Ecuador together, and she refuses to give up an excuse for fun at this stage in her 30s so Emily decides to take her slightly reluctant mother instead. She also wants to help her mom revisit some of the fun she had in her youth. Unfortunately, they find themselves kidnapped by a mysterious man they meet in a restaurant and only manage to escape with difficulty. By now they are in the middle of nowhere with no knowledge of their wild surroundings and they're definitely starting to wish they'd never come to South America in the first place.

The 35 year old comedian and Trainwreck actor took to Instagram on Monday (December 19th) to share a screenshot of a FaceTime conversation she had with her father, Gordon, when she announced the heart-warming news to him.
“Today I bought my father’s farm back,” she said. When Schumer was around 12 years old, the family lost their farm when her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At that point, they moved to Long Island near New York.

Schumer said she’d ‘always wanted’ to be on Kiss Cam and her dream came true on Sunday.
Amy Schumer got to fulfil a life goal on Sunday, when she got caught on Kiss Cam during the New York Mets game at Citi Field in New York. Schumer’s Kiss Cam moment started innocently enough with the comedian giving her dad a kiss on the cheek, but she then turned to boyfriend Ben Hanisch and things got graphic.
The comedian says she will never diet for a movie role again.
Amy Schumer has revealed that she was advised to lose weight before her big screen debut in Trainwreck, so she didn't 'risk hurting moviegoers eyes'. Speaking on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, Schumer discussed the unfair treatment of women in Hollywood and said she would never succumb to the pressure to be thinner again.
Amy Schumer says she was told to lose weight for Trainwreck
"It was explained to me before I did that movie that if you weigh over 140 pounds as a woman in Hollywood, if you're on the screen it will hurt people's eyes,” Schumer told Ross in the episode which will air tomorrow night.
Not even food poisoning could stop Amy Schumer from laughing during her trip to Paris with boyfriend Ben Hanisch.

Schumer was visiting the city of love with boyfriend Ben Hanisch when she was struck down with food poisoning on Monday and eventually hospitalised which, for the comedian, was the perfect time to make a hilarious video.
