Isla Fisher is joining the Tag cast opposite Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm and more
With production on the New Line comedy set to begin in Atlanta later this month, The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Isla Fisher (Nocturnal Animals, Now You See Me) is joining the Tag cast. She joins an ensemble that includes Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Hannibal Buress, Rashida Jones and Annabelle Wallis, as well as Fisher’s own recent Keeping Up with the Joneses co-star, Jon Hamm.
Directed by Jeff Tomsic, the Tag script hails from Mark Steilen and Rob McKitrrick and is loosely based on a true story of a group of friends who have been playing a hardcore game of tag for the last 30 years. The story was featured in a Wall Street Journal article back in 2013. Titled Tag Brothers, the article detailed how 10 classmates from Spokane, WA’s Gonzaga Preparatory School continued to play a game of tag 23 years after leaving the school. They played the game, going so far as to secretly enter one another’s homes and even scheduling their vacations around the game.
Fisher will play the wife of Helms’ character. He’s one of several players caught up in the ongoing game.
