Fisher hooks pic pair at Universal

Studio acquires two projects for actress

Universal Pictures has acquired two projects that will be developed as star vehicles for Isla Fisher.

Fisher, who last starred in “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” is attached to topline and produce “Life Coach,” a comedy about a young woman who consults a life coach who turns out to be messed up. Liz Cackowski and Maggie Carey are writing the script.

Gary Sanchez principals Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy will produce with Fisher.

Fisher is also attached to star in an untitled romantic comedy based on a French script called “Un Jour mes princes viendront” (One Day My Princes Will Come). The studio wouldn’t disclose the logline but has hired Audrey Wells (“Under the Tuscan Sun”) to write the script.

Alain Chabot and Stephanie Danan will produce through Wam Films, which most recently completed Eddie Murphy starrer “A Thousand Words” for DreamWorks.
