Sandra Bullock in Early Talks to Star in OUR BRAND IS CRISIS; George Clooney to Produce

A Gravity reunion of sorts is in the works.  The Wrap reports that Sandra Bullock is in early talks to star in the political comedy Our Brand Is Crisis, which is being produced by George Clooney and Grant Heslov for Warner Bros.  Based on the 2005 documentary of the same name from Rachel Boynton, the film revolves around the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia to help elect Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada as president.  Clooney and Heslov have been developing the film for quite a while now, but Heslov tells The Wrap that he feels the time has come for Our Brand Is Crisis to move forward.  At this time, Clooney only intends to produce the film and has no plans to direct.

A deal is not yet in place for Bullock to star, and the actress is mulling over a couple of projects for her next film.  One such project is the Screen Gems caper The Perfect Heist which follows a female thief who, when her male accomplices are arrested, recruits their wives and girlfriends to save them.  Watch the trailer for the Our Brand Is Crisis documentary after the jump.

    Gravity sucked. Why does nobody care about story and or character development anymore? Sure, effects are awesome but when working in conjunction with a well-told story and well-defined characters they can also make for emotionally resonant viewing instead of simply an ‘oooh cool’ factor. That over-hyped POS better not win best picture.

      I’m not really sure which movie you saw (maybe After Earth?), but Gravity was deep in terms of character development. Stories generally aren’t meant to force feed you information. Sometimes you must look deeper into the material. Anyways, I feel like the film was emotionally resonant because of the contrast between the events in space with the everyday lives of people on Earth. That’s just my opinion. Cheers, mate!

        It was all surface level gloss and I understood the character “development” from the first viewing, I just found it facile and unconvincing.

    FALLING IN AND OUT OF SANDRA BULLOCK (the #book)

    Dear Mr. #BradPitt,

    My name is, Michael F. Ortiz. October 2003-ish I was on excitechat.com where I believe I bumped into a group of your {friends}…you were there also.

    Meanazzbitch was #JeniferAniston

    Rose was #SandraBullock

    WitchHunter was #CameronDiaz

    Wolverine23 was #TomCruise

    I bumped into you all again @ poets.com June 2005.

    Sandy’s handle was spookiness and of course I saw good ‘ol Wolverine23 there too with the same handle.

    Sandy had profile picture of Jean Grey kissing Wolverine …and I (as you know) am Wolverine (so to speak).

    I found her months before returning to Los Angeles for a second time by means of the poem she wrote called “The Wolverine”

    I had written a poem there by that very same name so when i went to look up my poem to see if anyone had made comments to my poem I found that there were 2 poems by that name. Although the name SPOOKINESS was given to the poet…I knew it was Sandy.

    I tried to contact ‘spookiness’ May 31st 2005 but I was put on block. Which didn’t make sense to me…I wrote a poem that I wa a person who came defying odds to find her and that “she was at JESSE’S house”….she took me off block and gave me her email address.

    The first thing I told her was that I was Michael the ArchAngel and that She was Lucifer but although I wanted to bring an Apocalypse to save the virtuous and punish the wicked that I had meant to do so in a ‘forgiveness fest’…that {we} were soulmates.

    She replied, “I think you are here to punish me for something I know I did do but don’t remember what.”

    What was the name of her imaginary kid…Tyler?

    And do you remember what she wrote about me on poets.com after I wrote the poem about her @ JESSE’S house?

    Something, something “Mike Ortiz follows his dreams and doesn’t waken in tears or screams.”

    Remember the new profile picture she put up…A GREAT BIG JESUS, HIS FACE OVERLOOKING THE ENTIRE PLANET EARTH.

    I know you wer there…in the period that poets.com was changing to LULU.COM i went back to see if ‘spookiness’ was still there but instead of “spookiness” the profile name came back #SANDRABULLOCK.

    So i looked up the names i thought were you all from poets.com (i guessed those were you behind those avatars but largely after seeing #TOMCRUISE and #JENNIFERANISTON on Venice Beach that summer…Mr. & Mrs. Smith had just come out that year…I remember the posters on the City Buses)

    I didn’t find out what your handles were…all i had to do was type in your names and they all came up…even Cameron Diaz {btw…Ashton Kutcher wa not a name that came up…he wasn’t on poets.com by that name when I checked)

    I figure you would probably want to opt out…I am not sure your involvement might be…maybe more than I figure…maybe not…I am going to include you in this business because now y and #CourtneyCox as a couple ….it’s probably safe to say {we} were all a little worried for the #daughter #CoCo if Courtney were to get sole custody…..that vicious #violent temper of hers…something about being able to just pick up a phone and have people killed (paying them)….just threats i am sure…but dangerous violent threats #nontheless.

    If you decide to do so…please send this video blog around some of your circle (if you wish) …and please send me a copy!! You can send it to my email:

    dus6966@gmail.com

    i will reply when i get the video blog. I will make it short and i won’t inconvenience you any further.

    Like I said…you make some mistakes concerning not always being able to think of how others think…its nothing to be ashamed of…

    It is good to talk about things. If I had spoken up more as a kid…

    “the means to communicate how i felt accurately to others”

    …I think it does me well these days…a definite #pro.

    Sincerely,

    Michael Francis Ortizou are standing next to Sandy and I am no longer here to make friends with Sandy…i have been confronting her on these issues for the last 8 1/2 years now. There is a reason she won’t apologize…in fact by now she has lost every right she could have had to make things right on her own.

    Perhaps your involvement is DEEP & I expect for you to ignore or contact me with ulterior motives.

    Or not…if maybe you were able to opt out…your involvement in this issue being very minor I would only expect exactly and precisely this very little favor of you.

    I would like for you to make a video blog and if i have given you these handles both from excitechat.com and also that Sandra Bullock was in fact SPOOKINESS from POETS.COM that June 2005.

    If you could also add that Michael Francis Ortiz who graduated from Los Alamos High School June 1995 is the person who asked you to verify this information.

    I figured that was fair anyway…I am sorry if you are under duress…I empathize.

    To be honest I lost 20$ imaginary bucks on you sometime after 2009. I had thought maybe you had been a little insensitive about the whole divorce with Jen so by mid 2009 I had to call on that bet because you have done very good…you should be proud of yourself

    It wasn’t fair to Jen but it’s not like she didn’t have it coming. Her and Courtney are quite a little bit alike… #shallow #conceded & #hottempered …Gee I know anyone who knows #DaveArquette and #CourtneyCox as a couple ….it’s probably safe to say {we} were all a little worried for the #daughter #CoCo if Courtney were to get sole custody…..that vicious #violent temper of hers…something about being able to just pick up a phone and have people killed (paying them)….just threats i am sure…but dangerous violent threats #nontheless.
