The Starling

Isla was first linked to this project in March 2016 – Keanu Reeves was also in talks to star. The film would tell the story of a married couple who lose a child and the wife goes into a recovery place to help her with overwhelming grief, leaving the husband at home alone. To help aid in her recovery, the husband decides to build a beautiful garden for his wife in their backyard, but as he does he is tormented by an aggressive, black starling. At his wits end with the relentless nature of the bird, he goes to see a veterinarian to find out if there is a humane way to get rid of it. The vet, the husband finds out, used to be a psychiatrist but gave it up to help animals instead. However, the quirky vet begins counseling the husband in a turn that neither of them really expected. Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland) was linked to direct, and the script – written by Matt Harris – was once on the Black List of best, unproduced scripts.

 

Wedding Crashers 2

While promoting Nocturnal Animals on The Today Show in November 2016, Isla let slip that she was aware of talks going on around a sequel to 2005’s massive success Wedding Crashers. “I bumped into Vince Vaughn at a party and he said that apparently we’re going to be making a sequel, so I’m really excited to see what happened to Gloria,” Isla revealed. A few days later Deadline reported more on this story, adding that the film is still in the early stages as the stars need to sign off creatively and close deals for the project. The script was written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, with David Dobkin set to return as director.

 

Arrested Development Season 5

Cult comedy series Arrested Development was resurrected on Netflix in 2014, with Isla taking on a supporting role as Rebel Alley. In June 2015 producer Brian Grazer announced he had plans for more episodes in 2016; as of July 2016 nothing has come to fruition, but the cast have spoken about how they all still want to continue with the show, it is just a matter of scheduling filming.
