Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis are already cast in the film, which follows a suburban couple who discover their picture-perfect new neighbors are actually undercover spies. Galifianakis and Fisher play the couple, while Hamm plays one of the spy neighbors.
“Adventureland” helmer Greg Mottola is directing from a script by Mike LeSieur. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing.
Fisher, who broke out opposite Vince Vaughn in “Wedding Crashers,” was last seen in “The Great Gatsby” and “Now You See Me.”
She is currently filming “Grimsby” opposite real life husband Sacha Baron Cohen and is represented by CAA and Mosaic.
The news was first reported by the Tracking Board.
Check out the trailer for Isla’s movie “Life of Crime”! I’m really looking forward to seeing this!
Happy 35th Birthday to Miss Isla!
Aussie actress Isla Fisher admits to having little in common with Rebecca Bloomwood, the garment-infatuated character she plays in Confessions of a Shopaholic. Bubbly Miss Bloomwood is an aspiring fashion journalist with dreams of landing a job at publishing powerhouse Alette (think: the fictional incarnation of Vogue), and her wardrobe reflects her dedication to all things sartorial. Unfortunately, so do her credit card bills. Tens of thousands of dollars in debt, Becks spends her days dodging a dogged creditor and toiling away at Successful Savings, a magazine which shares space in the same building as Alette. There she feigns investment aptitude and swoons for her rough-around-the-edges superior, Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy).
With her hair perfectly coiffed and a form-fitting dress hugging her petite figure, Fisher bewitched journalists and sweetly smiled as she fielded questions about the film. Read on to learn about her newfound fashion discoveries and the one item she just can’t say “no” to in a department store.
What was your most fun fashion discovery while filming?
The most fun fashion discovery was [learning] to use a lot of color. I’m fairly conservative normally and I just felt like [costume designer] Patricia Field brought out the color in me. I now love to wear color.
People who haven’t read the book might think that this is a Prada-[esque] movie about conspicuous consumption, and hence couldn’t come at a worse time. But actually it’s a rehab movie about controlling conspicuous consumption. How do you view this movie with the zeitgeist and the fanbase that will see the film?
Well, obviously this movie was conceived during a different economic period and the lessons that Rebecca Bloomwood learns in the movie are those we have all been learning recently. So, it seems very topical. I’m proud of the responsible way that we handle it at the end of the movie, and in regards to the fanbase, it’s always been a comic dream of mine to attempt to seduce a man during a dance that is actually repulsive [as in one scene]. The opportunity of doing that arose during this movie and I embraced it.
I’m a few days late, but Stephanie sent me an email of this video featuring Isla! Click here to check it out!
