Wayne McClammy, the director behind the Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel viral videos “I’m F—ing Matt Damon” and “I’m F—ing Ben Affleck,” was previously on board but left due to creative differences, according to sources.

Written by Ellen Rapoport, Desperados is described as a female-oriented Hangover.

The story is about a woman who sends an indignant email to her new beau, who has gone silent after they have sex, only to discover he’s comatose in a Mexican hospital. Panicking, she races south of the border with her friends in tow to intercept the email before he recovers.

Mark Gordon, Jason Blum and Jennifer Todd are producing. Universal executive vp production Tracy Falco and director of development Maradith Frenkel will oversee the project. Shara Senderoff and Allyson Seeger are supervising for the Mark Gordon Co.

An actress-turned-director Thomas, repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham, last directed Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. Other credits include I Spy, Dr. Doolittle, Private Parts and The Brady Bunch Movie.

Really good news hit the trades! Isla is attached to yet another film which sounds again like it could showcase her loveable humor. I only hope this (or any) make it into production very soon – I’m so ready to see Ms. Fisher on screen again!

To reflect, Isla is also currently attached to star & produce Life Coach, Un Jour mes princes viendront (One Day My Princes Will Come), Desperadoes (a Hangover-esque comedy). And although we haven’t heard anything about it in a while she is supposedly still developing and producing comedy The Cookie Queen and lastly Groupies, another with no talk in some time. In 2011 we will hear her as a voice character in Rango and Isla is currently filming her role as Ginny in Burke and Hare. Big things for our lady love!

Isla Fisher is attached to star in Universal Pictures’ high concept romantic comedy Kiss & Tell, written by Dax Shelby and Robert Stevens.

Sheldon Turner is producing the film, about a woman who discovers she has the power to see exactly how a long-term relationship will unfold with a man after kissing him.

Turner, who recently adapted the video game “inFAMOUS” for Sony, will produce with Jennifer Klein.
