Sony and Mattel’s Barbie movie has hit snag after snag pretty much since its inception. At first, Diablo Cody was signed on to write the screenplay before tossing out her version in favor of competing three other writers against each other. Sony chose the winner and Amy Schumer joined the film to star (after a few touch-ups to the screenplay), but today she announced that, due to scheduling problems, she won’t be playing the iconic doll after all.
Netflix has been on a whirlwind pickup of A-list comedians for its flourishing standup stable, and some of the bigger additions are finally coming out to play. See for yourself in Amy Schumer’s first trailer for her Netflix debut, as the Snatched star deeply regrets the premise behind The Leather Special.
We’ve seen Amy Schumer take on her first HBO comedy special, and with Netflix making a monstrous purge into the genre, it was only a matter of time Schumer would make her next debut. So it is, that the Inside Amy Schumer star books a March premiere for a new standup special, and all in service of a Stranger Things Season 2 gig.
