I was just browsing Isabel’s official CV through Meissner Management, her management company, and discovered it is listing two new projects for her.
Tormenta is listed as being in production. Isabel would play Molly in the film to be directed by Uli Edel and produced by Essential Entertainment. I’ve done a quick search but cannot find any more information on this project. It’s not listen on the director’s IMDB page.
Careful What You Wish For is also listed as being in production, and to be produced by Michael Helfont and Robert Stein at Troika Pictures, and directed by Elizabeth Allen. Isabel’s characters name is Lena. Isabel’s involvement in this film was mentioned by Hollywood-Treatment.com last October, but I haven’t read anything about it since. Various sites reported on the film’s progress last year, and you can read them below, as well as a synopsis. IMDB is listing the film, and says that the film began production in April of this year.
Eighteen year old Doug gets more than he bargained for when he starts having an affair with Lena, the young wife of an investment banker renting the lake house next door for the summer. The husband’s accidental death reveals a substantial life insurance policy. Everyone is suspect in this edgy and sexy thriller reminiscent of “Body Heat” and “The Postman Always Rings Twice”.

Troika is currently filming thriller Careful What You Wish For with Elizabeth Allen attached to direct instead of music video king Jake Nava who has stepped down from the director’s chair.
Careful What You Wish For is written by Movieball Media’s Chris Frisina. Casting vet Pam Dixon has been brought on to find the ingenue at the center of the intrigue set against the summer at a lake in upstate New York.

Troika is casting contempo thriller “Careful What You Wish For,” penned by Chris Frisina and directed by Jake Nava. “Careful” is due to start lensing in July.
Hopefully we’ll get confirmation on the status of these projects soon. It would be great to see more of Isabel on the big screen!
