Variety is reporting that Sandra Bullock is back to a Warner Bros. project. With George Clooney producing, and being directed by David Gordon Green, she will star in the olitical dramedy “Our Brand is Crisis”, based on the 2005 documentary of the same name, which focuses on the use of American political campaign strategies in South America.
There’s not word yet on when filming might begin. Sandra is currently attached to Sony pic “Tupperware Unsealed” which revolves around the inventor of Tupperware.
I added screen captures on one of the first films Sandra did back in 1989, Who Shot Pat? (or Who Shot Patakango?). Check it:
I finally added screen captures of 2006 film Infamous:
The August issue of Vanity Fair Italy has a four-pages article celebrating Sandy’s 50 anniversary. Check scans in our gallery:
As announced back in May, Sandy is really attached to headline the film based on Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book Tupperware Unsealed, a biopic on Brownie Wise, the marketing pioneer who created the Tupperware home party strategy that made the brand a household name and opened new professional avenues for women. Sony Pictures announced that Tate Taylor, director of The Help, will write and direct it.
Coming Soon – Though Brownie Wise is frequently remembered as the idealized 1950s housewife, she was in fact a groundbreaking businesswoman who built a social network through which other women could earn their own money and independence. The first woman ever featured on the cover of Business Week, Wise became a popular and famous figure during her time as a marketing executive for Tupperware. However, her own clashes with company founder Earl Tupper, and the circumstances surrounding her exit from the company, underscored the limits of the liberation movement she personified.
“As a writer-director, Tate has the rare and delicate ability to capture both the romanticism and restrictions of a time and place,” says Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio. “In this case 1950’s suburban America. His characters are both immediately recognizable while also uniquely iconic. Such was the magic of Brownie Wise. There is no one better than Sandy to play Brownie — they share a fierce bravery and independent spirit.”
“Sandy and I have been trying to work together for years,” adds Taylor. “Finally, I’m very excited to put Tupperware in her hands. This is a collaborative dream come true.”
The film was packaged by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films and Television, who brought the project to the studio. Joining them as producers are Tom Shelly of Steele Mill Productions and Taylor through his Wyolah Films. John Norris and Alex Young will serve as executive producers. Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.
