Amy Schumer has signed on to play Barbie for an upcoming live-action comedy based on the popular toyline.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Barbie film centers on Schumer's character that lives in a perfect, Barbie-filled world, only to realize she doesn't belong. After being banished from her homeland for not fitting in, the character winds up in the real world where she learns to cherish her uniqueness.
The film, to be released in summer 2018, is an Enchanted-style mix of animation and live action which sees Schumer evicted from Barbieland for eccentricities.
