Fisher will play Rebecca Bloomwood, a college grad who makes a living working as a financial journalist in the Big Apple. Most things are going well, except that she's struggling with a terrible shopping addiction. Her bills increase well beyond her means and "she's forced to creatively find solutions to her mounting debt while falling in love with a highly successful entrepreneur she's highlighting for the magazine." Sounds like a perfect match to me -- although we'll have to see how she does as a financial journalist. The adaptation was written by Tracey Jackson (The Guru) and PJ Hogan (Muriel's Wedding and My Best Friend's Wedding), so that should bode well for the production.
Now, this is where I get confused -- they say that filming will begin this November. Fisher's already pretty round, and she's expecting her baby this winter, so I'm not sure how they're going to pull this all off -- unless the start date is just some misinformation. If she's a pregnant financial journalist and shopaholic in New York, well that would be...interesting.
Oh yeah, and she's cute. (Scott made me say that.)
