Whilst promoting their new Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams teased some news on a possible Wedding Crashers sequel:

Will Ferrell & Rachel McAdams Talk Wedding Crashers Sequel, Reuniting for Eurovision & More

What would a Wedding Crashers 2 look like?

E! News co-host Scott Tweedie made sure to ask all about the potential sequel during his exclusive chat with Wedding Crashers alums Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. While Tweedie was eager for details about the Wedding Crashers follow-up film, the two actors—who have reunited for a new Netflix movie, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga—stayed relatively tight-lipped.

“Wedding Crashers 2, yeah. I think we can just say it’s being written,” Ferrell told E! News.

As Tweedie joked about potential plot lines, Ferrell jokingly suggested that the sequel should be a drama about the characters’ subsequent divorces.

“How about if it’s just the lawyers representing everyone in divorce court? Wedding Crashers 2,” he quipped. “And just make it like a legal courtroom drama, not funny at all.”

For McAdams, she too thought divorce was in the cards for the characters of Wedding Crashers.

“Are we all getting divorced?” she pondered.

Isla’s latest film Greed was released on digital/DVD/blu-ray earlier this week, and today we’ve added HD screencaptures from the film. The satire film centered around high street fashion mogul Richard McCreadie, and the preparations for his lavish 60th birthday celebrations and story of how he built his empire; Isla played his ex-wife Samantha in a small (but present) supporting role. The film was watchable and funny at times, but missed the mark in getting its point across in a memorable way. Isla was fun and as always the highlight! Enjoy the screencaptures:

Isla Fisher to Star in Dark Comedy ‘Guilty Party’ at CBS All Access

CBS All Access has given out a series order to the dark comedy series “Guilty Party” with Isla Fisher set to star, Variety has learned.

In the half-hour series, Fisher plays Beth Baker, a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career by latching on to the story of a young mother sentenced to life in prison for maiming and murdering her husband, crimes she claims she didn’t commit. In trying to uncover the truth, Beth finds herself in over her head as she contends with Colorado gun-smugglers, clickbait culture, the doldrums of marriage and her own tarnished past.

Fisher will serve as executive producer in addition to starring. Rebecca Addelman serves as writer and executive producer. Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller and Funny Or Die’s Joe Farrell, Jim Ziegler, and Mike Farah will also executive produce, with Joe Hardesty co-executive producing. Trent O’Donnell is set to direct and executive produce. CBS Television Studios will produce in association with Funny or Die and Mosaic.

“’Guilty Party’ is a wild ride fueled by Beth’s grit, passionate heart and desperation to redeem herself,” said Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming for CBS All Access. “We knew we needed a magnetic, versatile talent in the role, and Isla perfectly embodies the wholly original character Rebecca created. We are thrilled to add ‘Guilty Party’ to our growing comedy slate which includes ‘Why Women Kill,’ ‘No Activity’ and the upcoming animated ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks.’”

Her role in the series will mark the first regular television role for Fisher since she appeared on the Australian show “Home and Away” in the 1990s. She is known for her roles in films like “Wedding Crashers,” “The Beach Bum,” “I Heart Huckabees,” “Keeping Up with the Joneses,” and “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” Her other past TV roles include “Arrested Development,” “Bored to Death,” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

The first trailer for Isla’s upcoming supernatural romantic comedy Blithe Spirit was released this week. The film is due for release in the UK on May 1st.

BLITHE SPIRIT is a riotous reimagining of Noël Coward’s classic comedy, about love that just won’t die…

Best-selling crime novelist Charles (Dan Stevens) is struggling with catastrophic writer’s block and a stressful deadline for his first screenplay. His picture-perfect second wife Ruth (Isla Fisher) is doing her best to keep him focussed in the hope of fulfilling her dream of heading to Hollywood. Charles’ desperate search for inspiration leads him to invite Madame Arcati (Judi Dench), a medium recently exposed as a fraud, to perform a séance in their home. They all get more than they bargained for when Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife: the fiery and jealous Elvira (Leslie Mann) who embarks on a mission to kill Charles so she can spend eternity with him which leads to an increasingly comical and deadly love triangle.

Isla made a guest appearance in this week’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, titled ‘Insufficient Praise’. Isla played Carol, the girlfriend of main character Larry David’s friend Richard. Carol is a “professional crier”, who obtained Larry’s mother’s mink fur coat and a relationship with Clive Owen through questionable methods. It was another fun comedic performance from Isla! Unlikely she’ll be back in the show though 😉
