I'm so excited! I LOVE the Shopaholic series and I just found out that, it is in fact, going to be a movie! The filming is set to start around nov/dec/jan (delayed due to Isla's pregnancy) and I think the release is next summer. Isla Fisher from Wedding Crashers is going to play Becky. I'm not sure what I think of her playing Becky yet...

I really hope they do the books justice and make this a phenomenal movie. :)

Here is a link to what Isla looks like: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0279545/

I don't think Isla is a good fit...she seems a little too eccentric or off to play Becky...I've always thought Reese Witherspoon would be a great Becky

I think Isla has the manic energy of Becky (think Wedding Crashers)...but I always pictured Becky as a brunette, so I hope they color her hair!

Yeah I always thought of Becky as a Brunette too. I would liked to have seen Kate Beckinsale get the part of Becky. I hope Isla does a good British accent. ;)

Wonder who they will get to play Luke and Suze?

Even though I never would have picked Isla Fisher as Becky...I can see it.  She has great quirky energy and facial expressions.  I really picture Becky's facial expressions when I am reading and they crack me up.

I would LOVE to see Clive owen as Luke.

I'd like to see Dermot Mulroney (from my Best Friend's Wedding) as Luke.  :)

Who could play Suze?

He would make a great Luke...so handsome.

I could see a Naomi Watts type playing Suze because I always picture Suze as really pretty and Tarqin as horribly nerdy.  I could see Michael Sheen (The Queen) playing Tarquin if they really nerd him up.  I love the Tarquin character, I just picture him as so awkward

I have always pictured the parents from Bridget Jones as Becky's parents especially in the "Ties the Knot" book...so maybe they could just reprise their roles ;o)

I just can't wait...
