Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in a football movie based on the real-life story of an underprivileged teen who goes on to become one of the nation’s most sought after players.
In ‘Blindside,’ Bullock will play the woman whose well-to-do family takes in football player Michael Oher, who was escaping a past of foster homes and being on the streets, according to Variety. Oher is widely expected to be a top pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
The film — based on the book The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game,” by Michael Lewis — is being produced by ‘Marley & Me”s Gil Netter for Warner Bros.-based Alcon Entertainment, Variety says.

Studio bosses at the helm of SANDRA BULLOCK’s latest film ALL ABOUT STEVE have pushed back the release date – because there are so many romantic-comedies currently competing for a slice of box office success.
The film was slated to hit theatres in the U.S. on 6 March (09) but has been possibly held from the market until the autumn.
Twentieth Century Fox have reportedly decided to delay the film due to the fact so many female-marketed movies are vying for cinemagoers attentions at the the same time.
All About Steve’s release would have been up against newly-released Confessions of a Shopaholic and Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore’s star-studded rom-com He’s Just Not That In To You – which shot straight to the top of the U.S. box office earlier this month (Feb09).

Like many women, Sandra Bullock, 44, has longed for a child but has not yet fulfilled that dream. Now, the actress — who will soon appear in the comedy All About Steve — will become a full-time mother to 5-year-old Sunny, her stepdaughter with husband Jesse James, 39.
Already close to Sunny — the two are often seen at the playground — Sandra takes on this new responsibility under difficult circumstances: On March 10, Sunny’s mother, former adult film star Janine Lindemulder, 40, will head for federal prison to serve a six-month sentence for income tax evasion. While Janine is behind bars, an Orange County, Calif., court awarded temporary full custody of Sunny to Jesse.
“Sandra will be fantastic as a full-time mom,” says actor Denis O’Hare, her co-star in her upcoming film The Proposal. “Jesse’s daughter is lucky to have Sandra in her life.”
The role of stepmom is not new to Sandra: She’s also close to Jesse’s two older children, daughter Chandler, 13, and son Jesse Jr., 10, from his marriage to Karla James.
“If the court gave Jesse James custody of Sunny, well… that’s her daddy. He should take care of her,” Janine’s aunt, Marjorie Lindemulder, tells OK!. “I just hope and pray for everyone involved.”
As for Sandra, the challenge appears to be a blessing. “I don’t see the difference in having blood-related kids or children who come with your husband,” she said last
spring. “I am very blessed.”

Sandra Bullock is reportedly set to star in a third film in the ‘Speed’ franchise.
Producers are planning to approach the 44-year-old actress – who shot to fame starring alongside Keanu Reeves in the 1994 action movie – to appear in a follow-up, despite the failure of the original sequel ‘Speed 2: Cruise Control’.
A source said: “Producers are looking at a lot of old franchises in order to secure box office hits and ‘Speed’ is just one of those. Sandra is still a popular star and another ‘Speed’ movie is there for her should she want to do it. It would be a modern twist on the old theme.”
Keanu – who turned down the opportunity to star in the 1997 sequel and was replaced by Jason Patric – recently spoke about the possibility in starring in another movie in the high-octane franchise.
He said: “Never say never, right? Sandra and I could probably do something pretty groovy with that.
“Maybe if we were travelling through Europe, maybe on the Serengeti, and there was some kind of mishap.
“It could be like a world tour. Or maybe we could go to Polynesia and then take us all across the world. Maybe if we shot for like four months and we have like a week off in every country, telling this kind of adventurous story for this couple.”
