Back in August, Isla Fisher was tapped to head the big-screen adaptation of Sophie Kinsella's bestselling novel Confessions of a Shopaholic, which was going to be filmed under the British title, The Secret Dream World of a Shopaholic. Now the film is back to its US title, has a new start date popping up next month, and more cast to revel in the world of shopping along with Fisher. The Hollywood Reporter has posted that Hugh Dancy and Krysten Ritter have signed on to co-star.

Shopaholic, which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Muriel's Wedding helmer PJ Hogan, is about a woman named Rebecca (Fisher), who works as a financial journalist in New York City -- one who writes for "Successful Saving." While most of her life is on the up and up, Rebecca has a serious shopping addiction that she can't afford, so she has to find "creative solutions" to kill her debt. And, since this is a romcom, she also falls for a successful entrepreneur she's covering for the magazine. One, perhaps, that can afford her over-the-top shopping ways?

The Jane Austen Book Club member Hugh Dancy won't be the object of Isla's affection, but rather the editor of her magazine. Ritter, meanwhile, will play her best friend, Suze. Ritter is also "Gina the Goth" in the upcoming romcom 27 Dresses, but is probably better known for her roles on Veronica Mars (the exuberant Gia Goodman) and Gilmore Girls (the also-exuberant Lucy). Now all we need is Rebecca's romantic interest, and the film will be set to shoot next month in New York and Connecticut.
