Actress Isla Fisher was so frustrated with the lack of good comedy scripts for actresses that she wrote a script on her own.
The “Wedding Crashers” star, who is married to actor Sacha Baron Cohen, felt the only way she could get a good role was to pen “Groupies”, which she will co-star in with Amy Poehler, reports contactmusic.com.
When asked how her script is developing, Isla replied: “Oh you mean ‘Groupies’? After ‘Wedding Crashers’ I was just surprised as to the lack of comedic female material there is. So I had to start working and getting stuff out there for myself”.
“‘Groupies’ is pretty close to being ready and I’ve got another movie called ‘Life Coach’ which I’ve been working on. Hopefully one of them will go soon. It’s more frustrating being in development than it is just to be cast in something. It’s a lot of things involved.”
The movie talks about Isla’s and comedienne Amy’s rock groupie characters, and they are also set to produce it.
This isn’t Isla’s first foray into writing – the 35-year-old actress has also written two novels but has previously revealed she has no plans to return to her old job.
