Sacha & Isla Wedding Update

March 24th 2010 • by Mycah • No CommentsPersonal

Many media outlets speculated that the Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Choen had wed in recent days, but Gossip Cop is reporting that they are the only outlet to confirm officially the happy news. They are stating that Sacha’s rep confirmed the news exclusively to them.

I’m a bit hesitant to believe the news from this site and not a more reliable source, but the only other thing I have found is X17 snapped some candids of the couple in Paris two days ago (which we of course do not post) and in this photo you can see the supposed rings.

I’ll continue to update you if something more is said!

First Official Look at Burke & Hare

March 24th 2010 • by Mycah • No CommentsProjects

Empire Online has revealed the first official production still from Burke & Hare. It sadly doesn’t feature Isla, showing only Pegg and Serkins as the title characters. Nonetheless, I’m really excited for the movie so I thought I’d post it anyways.

Burke & Hare is a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis). These two Irish entrepreneurs discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher Wed

March 22nd 2010 • by Mycah • No CommentsPersonal

I normally try and wait for more official sources, but this is being spread around like wildfire so I thought I’d acknowledge it.

According to Womans Day in Australia, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have quietly wed in Paris, France, last week. As you may know there is constant gossip reports of when the twosome would marry, but this magazine is reporting they finally did it! Sacha and Isla are clearly very private so we’ll have to keep a wait out for any of their official statements – if there are any. If the news is indeed accurate, wonderful congratulations to the adorable couple!

Cohen, 39, and Fisher, 34, who’ve been engaged for two years, said “I do” in front of a few close relatives in a private traditional Jewish ceremony in Paris last Monday.

“We did it we’re married!” Fisher wrote in an email to friends the following day. “It was the absolute best day of my life and in so many beautiful moments I missed you all so much.”

“I thought of you as everything was happening, but Sacha and I wanted no fuss just us!”

Cohen was spotted wearing a ring in Paris on Sunday, according to X17.

They welcomed a daughter, Olive, in 2007.

On the Set Of Burke and Hare

March 3rd 2010 • by Mycah • 2 CommentsGallery Updates, Projects

Isla has been filming Burke and Hare in London the past few days and the cast was photographed on the set of the upcoming movie.

Isla looked adorable in a Georgian outfit of a blue dress, a fur stole and matching cuff and a decorative velvet had adorned with blue and brown ribbons.

Simon Pegg, best known as the star of zombie movie Shaun of the Dead, was also clearly enjoying filming alongside the flame-haired beauty. Last week he boasted on Twitter:

“Thoroughly enjoying working with Shannon from Home & Away. Now I’m only one degree of separation from Mr. Fisher. Bonza.”

The website JustJared also noticed that Isla’s love Sacha Baron Cohen was on set, and in what looks to be a costume. Perhaps he is filming a cameo?

Burke and Hare is due for release later this year and tells the story of the real life criminals were responsible for the deaths of at least 17 people from 1827 until 1828. After murdering their victims, the pair then went on to sell the bodies to Dr Robert Knox, who dissected them in his anatomy classes at Barclay’s anatomy school in Surgeon’s Square.

Isla Fisher to Kiss & Tell

February 23rd 2010 • by Mycah • 3 CommentsRumoured Roles

Really good news hit the trades! Isla is attached to yet another film which sounds again like it could showcase her loveable humor. I only hope this (or any) make it into production very soon – I’m so ready to see Ms. Fisher on screen again!

To reflect, Isla is also currently attached to star & produce Life Coach, Un Jour mes princes viendront (One Day My Princes Will Come), Desperadoes (a Hangover-esque comedy). And although we haven’t heard anything about it in a while she is supposedly still developing and producing comedy The Cookie Queen and lastly Groupies, another with no talk in some time. In 2011 we will hear her as a voice character in Rango and Isla is currently filming her role as Ginny in Burke and Hare. Big things for our lady love!

Isla Fisher is attached to star in Universal Pictures’ high concept romantic comedy Kiss & Tell, written by Dax Shelby and Robert Stevens.

Sheldon Turner is producing the film, about a woman who discovers she has the power to see exactly how a long-term relationship will unfold with a man after kissing him.

Turner, who recently adapted the video game “inFAMOUS” for Sony, will produce with Jennifer Klein.

February 5th 2010 • by Mycah • No CommentsProjects

John Landis has begun principal photography on Burke & Hare.

Also new casting with the likes of Sir Christopher Lee, Reece Shearsmith, Jessica Hynes, Hugh Bonneville, Tim Curry, Bill Bailey and Ronnie Corbett were just announced.

Landis describes the film as a “black romantic comedy” in spite of its story which is a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers Burke and Hare. These two Irish entrepreneurs discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply. Isla Fisher will portray Pegg’s love interest Ginny, while Tom Wilkinson is anatomy lecturer Dr Robert Knox.

Happy Birthday Isla!

Yesterday, February 3, 2010 was Isla’s 34th Birthday! We want to wish her a very happy (belated) birthday. Hope she had a wonderful day!

Also, this site celebrated two years online yesterday as well. Isla Fisher Web was launched on her birthday in 2008.

Simon Pegg Joining Burke and Hare

January 30th 2010 • by Mycah • No Comments"Burke & Hare"

Simon Pegg is set to make horror funny again. THR reports that the Shaun of the Dead star has joined the black comedy Burke and Hare, which follows William Burke and William Hare, two 19th-century grave robbers and murderers who got rich selling the corpses of their victims. Andy Serkis will play Hare, Pegg will play Burke. The movie is not a remake of 1971’s Burke and Hare, which played the events for more dramatic effect.

Pegg has been using his Twitter account to update fans of the movie’s progress, which has already begun rehearsals.

1st day of Burke & Hare rehearsals at Ealing Studios where I once held off a legion of zombies with an old Winchester rifle. Happy days.

Pegg has been busy finishing up the comedy Paul, about two comic book geeks who meet an alien while driving across America, as well as meeting with Burke and Hare cast.

An Update – At Last!

January 23rd 2010 • by Mycah • 1 Comment »Gallery Updates, Public Events

I really want to apologize for the lack in updates last year. To be honest when things settle down with Isla, they go very quiet. So my motivation wasn’t really here for the site. However I’ve gotten a tincy bit of motivation while I read the Shopaholic novels (it’s true Isla is the perfect Becky! Only a shame the movie wasn’t more of a financial success because I’d love to see more of Isla in her shoes) but luckily our girl seems to have gotten a bevy of new projects which should begin filming soon so hopefully we will have new Isla material soon.

For now I’ve updated the gallery with the missing event pictures from late last year. These include: Bruno‘s Los Angeles premiere, Crude benefit screening and Feeding America’s Benefit Concert. Isla looks gorgeous at all of the events!
