Confessions of a Shopaholic Movie

Did anyone else hear that Sophie Kinsella's Confessions of a Shopaholic is going to be a movie? Isla Fischer is playing Becky Bloomwood and Jerry Bruckheimer will produce. I've only read the first book, but I'd love to see the movie! What do you think?

The ENTIRE Shopaholic series is fantastic! Becky Bloomwood is one of my favorite protagonists. I cannot wait for the movie to hit theatres!

I was really excited to know that they are making a movie but I am disappointed to find out that Isla Fisher is playing Becky's role in the movie. She is so not suitable for the role.
These are the suggestions that I had...

Becky: Anne Hatheway OR Cameron Diaz OR Uma Thurman
Luke: Matthew Fox (definitely)
Tarquin: Jack Driscoll (he is tall and skinny and would be PEREFCT for the role)
Suzie: Emilie DeRavin (she looks mature and would suit the character) OR Jennifer Garner OR Lacey Chabert
Alicia: Sianna Miller OR Eva Mendes
Becky's mom: Doris Roberts (or someone really mom-like)

I heard from someone else that Rachel Bilson is playing Becky!

I am so excited for this movie, the Shopaholic novels are my absolute favorite!!! I cannot wait until the fall!! I think that Wentworth Miller would play an amazing luke!!

I've just read that Ella Enchanted star Hugh Dancy has now been confirmed as the editor of the financial magazine where she works, while Krysten Ritter, who appears alongside Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, will take the role of her best friend.

ever since i read the first book i knew it was imposible for it not to be turned into a movie. my mind constantly imaged all the perfect sets and characters, gowns and litters of champagne, luke in real life(hmmm...no casting ideas there, someone new anyway). as for the girl who playes becky, i think isla is suitable. but for the rest, apparently i have a little grey's anatomy obsession. i think suze should definetly be katherine heigl and if they ever bring to life 'shopaholic and baby' venetia carter must must must be kate walsh! she is perfect!!!

Hi all.Well i am from India and i have read all the 5 books in the series and well i fell in love with becky.Man i never seen anyone having such a madness for shopping.It would be great if all the books can be created in a movie.And luke,Well he sounds very delectable.....anyways my suggestion is tht becky can be played by Meg Ryan....i know she's of the older generation but she still has tht sweetness tht becky's characted needs.What says?

Hi.. Am from Kuwait.. I never imagined Becky to be Isla type. I always thought of becky as someone talles than Isla and slightly more built, but hey! I read everything published under Sophie's name except "remember me?", which I bought and planning to read soon. And can't wait for the movie. Actually I thought of it as a setcom more than a movie.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE ISLA FISHER IS NOT THE RIGHT PERSON TO PLAY BECKY. THESE ARE MY FAVORITE BOOKS IN THE WORLD AND I HAVE SUCH A STRONG IMAGE OF BECKY...I THINK EMILY BLUNT WOULD BE PERFECT! SHE SEEMS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE.

I'm sooooooooo excited for this movie...i kno it will be nothing near as good as the books...thats just impossibe!!! What do u think of isla fisher? I don't think she's right, but i do like the idea of emily blunt...

I'm neutral on Isla, I guess. Now, after seeing Enchanted, Amy Adams might make a cute, bubbly Becky. :)
