Barbie Dodged a Bullet

In what would have been one of the poorest casting choices since Rosie O'Donnell was cast to play Betty Rubble in the Flintstone movies,  Amy Schumer has found herself with "scheduling" conflicts and has dropped out of the proposed live action movie "Barbie".

Amy Schumer has parted ways with Sony’s live-action “Barbie” over a scheduling conflict, Variety has learned.

“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.”

The big screen adaptation of Mattel’s iconic toy line was expected to start production this summer on June 23, but Schumer’s busy schedule includes a lengthy promotional tour for her new Fox comedy “Snatched,” which opens in May, as well as an upcoming shoot for Rebecca Miller’s “She Came to Me” opposite Steve Carell.~snip~
I personally find Amy Schumer one of the unfunniest comedians out there, I've also never been a fan of "Barbies" but come on.....there has to be a better alternative than Amy Schumer.
We at least owe that to little girls everywhere.
