amy-schumer

Trainwreck star Amy Schumer has departed Sony and Mattel live-action comedy BARBIE due to schedule conflicts. The film still has the June 29, 2018 release date.

Schumer said in a statement:

“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. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing BARBIE on the big screen.”

Schumer was set to play a misfit living in a land of perfect Barbies who comes to the real world where her being/looking different turns into an asset. The film has been described as being a contemporary spin of beauty, feminism and identity in the comedic fantasy vein of Splash, Enchanted or Big.

From princess to president, mermaid to movie star, Barbie has done it all through her more than 150 careers. The world’s most popular doll has gained valuable experiences and shown her fans that anything is possible for a modern woman. The toy line launched in 1959 and brings in $2 billion dollars annually.

The script is written by Hilary Winston, with Schumer and her sister Kim Caramele doing rewrites. Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Amy Pascal.

Jake Gyllenhaal is re-teaming with director Daniel Espinosa for Riva Marker and Bold Films’ upcoming adaption, THE ANARCHISTS VS ISIS based on Seth Harp’s Rolling Stone piece.

Espinosa will also produce under his newly-formed production banner BOZI alongside Ninestories’ producers Gyllenhaal and Marker. Bold Films’ Chairman Michel Litvak will also produce and CEO Gary Michael Walters will executive produce.

The Rolling Stone article, written by Seth Harp, tells the true story of a ragtag team of American volunteers, socialists and outcasts, who are fighting alongside the Kurdish militia known as the YPG to beat ISIS in Syria and establish an anarchist collective amid the rubble of war.

Riva Marker, Producer said:

“Jake and I are thrilled to partner with Daniel Espinosa on Seth Harp’s daring story. Thematically, we’re often attracted to material about the search for identity, especially in a world where it’s become easier to feel less and less connected. Seth’s story is about people who abandon everything that’s familiar as a means to connect in the most brutal of circumstances. Daniel is wonderfully collaborative and so passionate about this material. We are eager to start working with a screenwriter together.”

Michel Litvak, Bold Films’ Chairman added:

“In a very short time under the leadership of Jake and Riva, Ninestories has become an incredibly exciting production company. Their vision for fresh and provocative material coupled with brilliant filmmakers like Daniel Espinosa aligns perfectly with Bold’s mandate.”

Gyllenhaal and Espinosa recently collaborated with Sony’s sci-fi thriller Life, which is currently in theaters now.
