Isla Fisher in talks to pull ‘The Switch’

“Bachelorette” star Isla Fisher is in talks to join John Hawkes and Jennifer Aniston in writer-director Dan Schechter’s untitled adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s 1978 novel “The Switch.”

Crime drama, which will serve as a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” stars Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) as younger versions of Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson’s respective characters Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, who also appear in Leonard’s novel “Rum Punch.”

Set 15 years before the events in “Jackie Brown,” story follows career criminals Ordell and Louis as they team up to kidnap Mickey Dawson (Aniston), the wife of a corrupt Detroit real estate developer. When the husband refuses to pay the ransom for his wife’s return, the ex-cons are forced to reconceive their plan, and the angry housewife uses the duo to get her revenge.

Should a deal make, Fisher would play Melanie, the same character played by Bridget Fonda in “Jackie Brown.” As the kidnapping and subsequent blackmail unravels, the loyalty-free, manipulative Melanie begins to interfere in subtle and unpredictable ways.

Ty Burrell is attached to co-star as a witness to Aniston’s kidnapping, while Dennis Quaid has exited the project due to scheduling conflicts with his CBS series “Vegas.”

The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman are producing with Michael Siegel and Leonard, while Jim Garavente will exec produce. Production is now tentatively skedded to start in February.

Fisher, who voices the female lead in DreamWorks Animation’s “Rise of the Guardians,” will next be seen in Summit’s magician heist pic “Now You See Me” and as Myrtle Wilson in Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” which Warner Bros. opens in 3D on May 10.

Fisher is repped by CAA, Mosaic, Shanahan Management and attorney Warren Dern.

I’ve some luck in finding more photos from the Rise Of The Guardians New York premiere, and these 10 HQ photos have just been added to the Gallery. I’m surprised there weren’t more press at the event – it seems quite strange.

I’ve also posted a video from the event further down this post.

Isla appeared on Live With Kelly & Michael on Monday, to chat about Rise Of The Guardians, and I have now put together coverage for you! Big big thanks goes to my friend Colleen for making us a video of the appearance. From this I have been able to upload an exclusive downloadable video for you, plus screencaptures. We also have a few stills from the taping.

It was a short but nice interview – Isla talked about fitting yoga into her daily life as a mum, training as a clown, and then what attracted her to Rise Of The Guardians. It’s really great to see her on a big chat show again!

Enjoy the video and pictures 🙂

As expected, Isla attended the London premiere of Rise Of The Guardians tonight, and she looked fabulous in a little white lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana. I really like that she’s done something different with her hair too. Isla was photographed at the red carpet event with co-star Chris Pine, director Peter Ramsey, composer Alexandre Desplat and producer Christina Steinberg.

I’ve added the first few photos to the Gallery, and will start on adding more tomorrow. I believe there was also a press junket for the film today, so maybe we’ll have some more video interviews too …
