Sandra Bullock gets blonde — and serious — in ‘The Blind Side,’ her new project based on a remarkable true story, and our own Mark Steines is on the Atlanta, GA set, where ‘The Proposal’ star reveals she was nervous about delivering a convincing Southern accent for her role.
“I couldn’t nail it those first couple of days, and then something just clicked after awhile,” she explains, adding facetiously, “You hope it clicks before you’re halfway through the film.”
It was released today a new trailer for “The Blind Side”.
Movie star Sandra Bullock was in the Mid-South Monday. She surprised some staffers at Briarcrest High School with an impromptu visit. Bullock was in town to research her new role.
The school’s principal Steve Simpson said Bullock has been cast as Leigh Anne Tuohy, the mother of Michael Oher.
Sandra Bullock is reportedly still in the Mid-South, now in Oxford to see where Oher currently is going to school.
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.
