Sandra Bullock has passed some remarkable milestones this year. She's become probably the highest paid actress for a single project in Hollywood history, taking home a man's size share of the gross for her Oscar-nominated role in Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," a rare instance of a Hollywood actress carrying a tentpole action film. (Only Angelina Jolie has come close.) She turned 50--and still looks absolutely fabulous. And she can pick and choose her next project. Several are bubbling away.
Variety reports that Bullock is orbiting another Warner Bros. picture that has been greenlit with studio supervising execs Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste: political dramedy “Our Brand is Crisis," based on the 2005 documentary about deploying American political campaign strategies South America. Bullock met recently with fellow CAA client David Gordon Green and liked the director's take on the movie. Like Bullock, Green is capable of delivering both comedy and drama. Bullock would executive produce the Peter Straughan script with her buddies, Smokehouse Pictures producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov. Green’s “Manglehorn,” starring Al Pacino and Holly Hunter, is set to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Bullock is also attached to Tate Taylor's “Tupperware Unsealed,” a profile of the inventor of Tupperware, at Sony.
