Dancy, Ritter in the bag for 'Shopaholic'


Hugh Dancy and Krysten Ritter 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 go before cameras next month in New York and Connecticut.

Mike Stenson, Chad Oman and Ron Bozman are executive producing. Jason Reed oversees for the studio.

"Shopaholic" makes the third movie Dancy has done for Bruckheimer, following "King Arthur" and "Black Hawk Down." His other credits include "Ella Enchanted" and "The Jane Austen Book Club." He is repped by WMA and Untitled.

Ritter, repped by Innovative, appears in "27 Dresses."
