Comedian Amy Schumer has backed out of starring in the live-action big screen version of Barbie. After signing on for the project back in December, Schumer was forced to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts.

“Sadly I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts” Schumer told 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.”

Variety reports the film was scheduled to start production this June, but Schumer is unavailable due to the promotional schedule for her upcoming film Snatched  and the shoot for her film She Came To Me.

While Schumer was highly sought after for the role, Mattel reportedly needs to stick to the film’s scheduled June 29, 2018 release date as they already have merchandise and product cycles in the works.

The live-action comedy tells the story of the main character getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough. This causes her to land in the real world for an adventure.
