Happy holidays, Merry Christmas and fabulous New Year 2010 to all of our visitors!
Universal Pictures has picked up Desperados, a comedy script from Ellen Rapoport that will act as a potential starring vehicle for Isla Fisher, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is set in motion when a woman sends an indignant e-mail to her new beau, who’s gone silent after they have sex. When she discovers he’s comatose in a Mexican hospital, she races south of the border with her friends in tow to intercept the e-mail before he recovers.
The project has been described as a female-oriented Hangover.
Great news! It’s been a little quiet in Isla land the past few months so It’s goo to hear she’ll be getting back to work soon with not one, but two new movies!
Universal Pictures has acquired two projects that will be developed as star vehicles for Isla Fisher, reports Variety.
Fisher is attached to topline and produce Life Coach, a comedy about a young woman who consults a life coach who turns out to be messed up. Liz Cackowski and Maggie Carey are writing the script.
Fisher is also attached to star in an untitled romantic comedy based on a French script called Un Jour mes princes viendront (One Day My Princes Will Come). Audrey Wells (Under the Tuscan Sun) will write the script.
Isla Fisher told SCI FI Wire that she’s the voice of a gun-toting lizard in the upcoming animated movie Rango.
The film, directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), stars Johnny Depp as a household pet who embarks on an adventure to discover his true self. In addition to Fisher and Depp, the voice cast includes Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Ned Beatty.
Fisher spoke about Rango last month while promoting her current film, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Followed are edited excerpts of the exclusive interview with Fisher. Rango is slated for release in March 2011.
Sacha Baron Cohen and his fiancee, actress Isla Fisher, have had to put their wedding plans on hold again because of their hectic work schedules.
The couple, who have been together for seven years, are busy promoting Sacha’s new movie Bruno, which premiered in London last week.
Now Isla is set to star in an action comedy called Your Highness, which will start shooting in Ireland this summer, putting paid to any hopes of a wedding.
‘If Isla signs the deal, it will mean moving to Ireland for a while with their baby daughter Olive,’ says a friend.
‘With all their projects, Isla and Sacha haven’t had time to tie the knot. They have set their hearts on getting married in Italy.’
The couple originally intended to get hitched in August 2006, and had even consulted wedding planners to organise their special weekend in a medieval Tuscan village.
But it all fell through due to escalating costs.
