Isla is now in Park City, Utah to promote Bachelorette at the Sundance Film Festival, and yesterday she popped into the T-Mobile Google Music Village and a couple of photo studios. Isla was snapped with her co-star and fellow Aussie Rebel Wilson at the Music Village, and their other co-stars, including Kirsten Dunst and James Marsden, joined them for the two portrait sessions.
There will be a premiere for Bachelorette in the next few days, so we will definitely be seeing more of Miss Fisher and her co-stars at Sundance soon!
And continuing the Bachelorette love, I’ve replaced the first two stills from the movie with HQ versions.

Bachelorette writer-director Leslye Headland has spoken to the New York Times about her new movie, and gives us a bit of insight into the characters. Read the full but brief interview at the link above.
“My movie is nasty, dark, complicated and a little bizarre. If people come in expecting ‘Bridesmaids’ they may have a heart attack. Or they might hate it and leave.” (We’ve seen it. Won’t happen.)
“I wanted to explore the idea of people who are good no matter how hard they work at being bad,” she said. “At the same time, I wanted a feeling of suspense at the end. Will these women turn out to be fine? Not clear. Hopefully, people will leave worried about them, but in a hopeful way.”
As we posted about before, Bachelorette will be premiereing at the Sundance Film Festival this month. The official Sundance website has now posted a full synopsis for the movie and 4 screening dates, which you can find here. One of those 4 dates will be the world premiere red carpet event, so if we’re lucky Isla will be in attendance! We’ll be sure to bring you coverage of the film festival next week … I’m sure you’re all as excited as I am to be hearing more about this movie!
Regan is used to being first at everything. Imagine her horror and chagrin when she finds out the girl everyone called Pig Face in high school is going to tie the knot before she does! But Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: substance-abusing, promiscuous Gena and ditzy Katie. The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with acerbic wit and seemingly endless supplies of coke and booze, the foul-mouthed femmes embark on one very long and emotional night filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends.
Kirsten Dunst is consistently funny leading the talented cast, which includes the delightful scene stealer, Rebel Wilson, who plays Becky, a.k.a. Pig Face. Adding to the tradition of successful bridal comedies, this debut feature by writer/director Leslye Headland is a sassy and sometimes romantic ride that never forgets to celebrate the complexities of female friendship.
Thanks to our friends over at The Daily Blam we found out that the cast and crew of Now You See Me will begin production at Second Line Stages in New Orleans tomorrow.
We also heard that the movie will begin principal photography on Monday, 11.16, when they are tentatively scheduled to shoot at the New Orleans International Airport.
As it’s January 1st already, I would like to take a second to wish all of our visitors and fellow Isla fans – as well as Isla herself – a very Happy New Year! I hope 2012 brings you lots of happiness and success.
2011 was a big and busy year for Isla, promoting Rango at the start of the year, then filming two movies – at the same time! – in the middle of the year. But 2012 is going to be bigger, with the release of those two highly anticipated new movies – Bachelorette, and The Great Gatsby. Not to mention the possible filming of Now You See Me, and, judging by how 2011 went, a few more films. Be sure that Isla Fisher Web will be here to cover it all for you … in fact, we’re so excited we just can’t wait for it all!! Thanks for all your support in 2011, I hope we’ve done you and Isla justice with this site. Here’s to more of the same in 2012
The content updates are continuing! I’m trying to pack lots into this site for you. Since the last update I’ve add lots of quotes and trivia (taken from our new Press page) to their respective pages, as well as writing the Awards & Nominations and Rumoured Roles pages. I’m now continuing to work on the Career section, and will probably jump on over to the Media section in between those Career pages, too.
EDIT: A Through The Years page is now up and viewable, too.

Browsing YouTube rarely fails to bring up some nice treats, and I have found some worth their own post today! I’ve just come across a batch of old Home & Away episodes featuring Miss Isla as the memorable Shannon. Here are some, and check back tomorrow for more!
Shannon tells Pippa and Michael that she is leaving because she has been nothing but trouble. The new maths teacher arrives and Marilyn is very pleased to see him.
