Amy Poehler and Isla Fisher to Write, Star in Groupies
Queens of laughter Amy Poehler and Isla Fisher are currently writing a comedy about the world of rock groupies. The appropriately titled Groupies will star the two comedians who will also serve as executive producers.
Fisher and Poehler decided to take matters into their own hands and write the script together after noticing a significant lack of material available for hilarious women. “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,” Fisher explained to CTV.
“Groupies is pretty close to being ready and I’ve got another movie called Life Coach which I’ve been working on,” she said concerning the development of her various projects. “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.”
