Last December, we reported that Sandra Bullock was in early talks to star in the political comedy Our Brand Is Crisis.  The story is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name from Rachel Boynton, and revolves around the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia to help elect Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada as president.  According to Variety, Bullock has now signed on to star with David Gordon Green set to direct.  Bullock, who will also serve as an executive producer, agreed to lead the project after meeting with Green “who has been in the mix for the directing job for some time,” and “the actress was convinced to join the project on the strength of his vision.”  George Clooney and Grant Heslov are still executive producing from a script by Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).

Bullock is also attached to star in Tate Taylor‘s Tupperware Unsealed, which is about the inventor of Tupperware.  As for Green, he’s also attached to direct the college football project Score and the gritty thriller Line starring Chris Pine.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer for the 2005 documentary.
