I know Hollywood is the land of fake (fake face, fake boobies, fake husband, fake sex—you name it!) where originality is scarce so book adaptations should always be expected, but gawdalmighty, I’m beginning to think every bleeding bestseller is being made into a movie. (Not that I’m complaining, hee. As of now, my most anticipated movie is The Time Traveler’s Wife.)
Production for Confessions of a Shopaholic, based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella, has already began a few days ago in NYC. Isla Fisher** will play Becky, “a compulsive shopper in Manhattan up to her neck in debt who becomes a financial-advice columnist.” Photo above is one of the first photos taken from the set; I should hate orange and purple together but love the tights, loooove the coat—I think she looks pretty spiffy. Then I looked down: peep-toe booties? :S
Anyhoodles, according to IMDb, Krysten Ritter joins the cast as Suze, Becky’s BFF. Hugh Dancy is also listed but without mention of a specific role. Is he going to play the verra fuckable Luke? More importantly, will he open up to Becky *ahem* *in Becky’s voice* “like they do on Dawson’s Creek”? (Source)
**How does Mrs. Borat stay looking so young? Virgin’s blood? Dolphin’s tears? Unicorn’s poop?? What, whaaaat???
