Mattel and Sony have teamed up for the live action Barbie film. Amy Schumer (Trainwreck) is set be play the lead in the film and will rewrite the script with her sister, Kim Caramele.

The Barbie doll is one of the biggest toy brands in the world. However, it has been having problems recently regarding issues of self-image and race in modern times.

According to THR, the film will try to address those in a story that begins in a perfect land of Barbies where one woman slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit it. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset. The studio is hoping to make an imaginative family comedy with plenty of heart.

I can see what they are trying to do here, but I am not sure whether Schumer is the right choice. He comedy isn’t really aimed at kids, but then many other comedians, such as Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams, had great success with kids movies so it can be done.

I think a lot of this is going to depend on what exactly they do with the story and who directs it.

Walter F. Parkes, Laurie MacDonald, and Amy Pascal will direct.

What are your thoughts on Amy Schumer playing Barbie?
