Well, the many of you who proposed that Isla Fisher would make a good Becky Bloomwood in the Shopaholic movie were spot-on with your casting. This was rumored to be true for some time, but now it's official: Isla Fisher will play Becky in the movie!
Jerry Bruckheimer will produce and P.J. Hogan (Muriel's Wedding, My Best Friend's Wedding, Peter Pan) will direct. Apparently the script version "centers on a compulsive shopper in Manhattan up to her neck in debt who ironically becomes a financial advice columnist."
To me, this makes perfect sense. Becky strikes me as funny, silly and adorable — but also smart. I think Isla Fisher can play all of these things with aplomb. Production will begin in January, and the name of the movie will be The Secret Dream World of a Shopaholic. I can't wait to see what Isla does with this part!
What do you think of Isla as Becky Bloomwood? And who should round out the rest of the cast? Who should play Becky's man Luke and her best friend Suze?
