Aussie actress Isla Fisher (“Wedding Crashers,” “The Lookout”) has signed on to star in “The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic” for producer Jerry Bruckheimer reports JoBlo.
Based on Sophie Kinsella’s novel “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” Fisher will star as Rebecca Bloomwood, a recent college graduate working as a financial journalist in New York City.
Her shop-a-holic ways are causing the bills to pile up fast and she’s forced to creatively find solutions to her mounting debt. Along the way she falls in love with a highly successful entrepreneur she’s highlighting for the magazine.
Tracey Jackson (“The Guru”) wrote the adaptation of Bloomwood’s book and fellow Aussie PJ Hogan is set to direct. Filming is scheduled to begin this November in New York.
