Dancy and Ritter Join Shopaholic


Hugh Dancy and Krysten Ritter (27 Dresses) have joined Isla Fisher in Disney’s romantic comedy Confessions of a Shopaholic, which P.J. Hogan is directing and Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.

Based on the best-selling novels by Sophie Kinsella, the movie centers on a compulsive shopper (Fisher) in Manhattan up to her neck in debt who becomes a financial-advice columnist.

Dancy stars as the editor of the financial magazine where Fisher works. Ritter plays Fisher’s best friend.

Tim Firth, Tracey Jackson and Kayla Alpert worked on the script.

The movie is scheduled to start filming next month in New York and Connecticut.
