Isla the Cookie Queen
Apr. 30, 2007
I would've thought that after her star-making supporting turn in WEDDING CRASHERS that Isla Fisher would've skyrocketed to fame. She's done alright for herself, for sure, but not quite what I expected to happen. She just released THE LOOKOUT and has the "SNL" comedy HOT ROD on the way but not much else between then and now. Now at least she's getting some starring consideration with Universal picking up the pitch THE COOKIE QUEEN for Fisher to star (interesting to note, perhaps, that Fisher's fiance Sacha Baron Cohen will make his next film at Universal?...). The film follows a young woman who is the reigning Girl Scout cookie selling champion. When she finds out that a fifth-grade girl is going to end her 20-year reign as champ, she sets out to sabotage her success. Jeremy Haft and Ed Gonzalez wrote the script, which Fisher will also produce.
||Fisher will provide a voice for the upcoming animated film HORTON HEARS A WHO.
