Thanks to DailyMail, there’s few more pictures of Sandy on the set of Our Brand Is Crisis on September 22 in New Orleans, LA:
She is a quintessential brunette, known for her glossy brown mane. But Sandra Bullock is lightening up for her role in new film Our Brand Is Crisis.
The 50-year-old debuted her blonde locks on the set of the George Clooney-produced film in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday. The Oscar winner looked gorgeous with the lighter ‘do, which softened her strong features.
At one point, Sandra wore a white T-shirt, grey cardigan and jeans as she made her way to set. She added a youthful touch with white trainers and tied her hair in a half updo.
Later, she was spotted in business attire, showing off her slender frame in black trousers and a grey blazer, shielding her eyes with clear-rimmed sunglasses.
The actress is playing retired political consultant Jane Bodine in the dramedy, directed by David Gordon Green. The film is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name, and looks at American political campaign strategies in Bolivia. Sandra is re-teaming with her Gravity co-star Clooney, who will produce the film. – DailyMail
THR has announced a few days ago that Anthony Mackie (known for Captain America: The Winter Soldier) joined Sandra in her upcoming project Our Brand Is Crisis. Also, La Razon, a bolivian magazine, announced that Reynaldo Pacheco, a bolivian actor, would also join the cast. According to the magazine, he will play Eddie Camacho, a character which will be representing the Bolivian people.
Anthony Mackie, who soared as Sam “The Falcon” Wilson in one of this year’s biggest films, has closed a deal to join Our Brand is Crisis, the political dramedy starring Sandra Bullock.
David Gordon Green is directing the Warner Bros. film, which is based on the 2005 doc Our Brand Is Crisis. The story focuses on the use of U.S. political campaign strategies in South America. Halt and Catch Fire’s Scoot McNairy recently joined the cast.
Peter Straughan wrote the script, and George Clooney and Grant Heslov are producing through their Smokehouse Pictures banner. Bullock will executive produce, and Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste are overseeing for the studio. Production is slated for the fall. – THR
Sandra was spotted filming Our Brand Is Crisis today (September 22, 2014) in New Orleans, Louisiana:
The blonder, the better.
Well, that may not always be the case. But by the looks of it, Sandra Bullock looks pretty good with her newly lightened tresses—although Sandra can pull off pretty much any hair color with ease.
The 50-year-old was spotted on set in New Orleans, Louisiana Monday afternoon sporting a dirty blond look. The actress ditched her naturally dark locks to play the role of a retired American political consultant in the George Clooney-produced comedy Our Brand Is Crisis.
But this is not the first time that Sandra has lightened up for a movie role. You may recall that she went blond for her Oscar-winning role in The Blind Side in 2009 to play the character of Leigh Anne Tuohy. And that same year, Sandra dyed her hair honey blond for the comedy All About Steve. – EOnline
David Gordon Green, whose Manglehorn plays tonight [Sept 6] in Toronto, is gearing up to start shooting his next film Our Brand Is Crisis in three weeks.
Sandra Bullock will star and executive produce. George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse is producing the Warner Bros project.
The film will shoot in October and November before breaking for December and resuming in January.
“It’s about American political consultants in Bolivia. I just got back from doing some research in Bolivia. It will shoot in New Orleans, Puerto Rico and Bolivia,” Green told Screen. The film will be partially Spanish language.
The film is based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary Our Brand In Crisis.
“I loved it when this came up, it’s a challenging studio movie, I’m up for those kind of efforts. Sandy’s really awesome and wants to make this something distinctive, and once you pull off a Gravity, people let you do something you’re really passionate about. I would love to be the guy that helps big movie stars do stuff like that,” Green says.
He has some experience in that, by recently casting Nicolas Cage in Joe and then Al Pacino in Manglehorn.
Green also recently shot the pilot of Red Oaks for Amazon. – Screen Daily
After her success in “Gravity,” Sandra Bullock is again orbiting a Warner Bros. project.
Sources tell Variety that Warners has greenlit the political dramedy “Our Brand is Crisis,” which Bullock has committed to star in with David Gordon Green set to direct. The film is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name, which focuses on the use of American political campaign strategies in South America.
Bullock had been linked to the project as far back as awards season, but was still weighing her options. Insiders say that following a meeting with Green, who has been in the mix for the directing job for some time, the actress was convinced to join the project on the strength of his vision.
Bullock will also exec produce with George Clooney and Grant Heslov producing through their Smokehouse Pictures banner. Peter Straughan penned the script. Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste are overseeing the project for the studio.
Bullock is currently attached to the Sony pic “Tupperware Unsealed” which revolves around the inventor of Tupperware. Tate Taylor is on board to helm. Green’s most recent film “Manglehorn,” starring Al Pacino and Holly Hunter, will premiere at the Toronto Film Fest.
Green and Bullock are both repped by CAA. – Variety
Director Tate Taylor mentioned Tupperware Movie and Sandy while talking to The Hollywood Reporter:
Meanwhile, Taylor also dished on the Tupperware movie he’s working on with Sandra Bullock, whom he met with longtime friend Octavia Spencer the same way Spencer did — through his work as a production assistant on A Time to Kill.
Taylor cautioned that the project, which Sony recently picked up, is still in its early stages, saying, “I’ve gotta write it!”
“It’s a wonderful project about Brownie Wise, the woman that basically, as I say, she leaned in 20 years before Sheryl Sandberg was even born, and she started a revolution for women in the workplace by selling Tupperware, and it’s a story of her life but not a biopic of her life, it’s inspired by her life,” Taylor explained. “I went to Sandy [Bullock] and gave her my pitch for it and she said, ‘This sounds great, let’s do it.’ And luckily Sony Pictures and Amy Pascal said [they were onboard].”
Sony Pictures has acquired rights to the novel “Tupperware Unsealed” with Sandra Bullock attached to star and Tate Taylor on board to direct.
Taylor will also adapt the script with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Entertainment producing along with Tom Shelly of Steele Mill Productions.
Story tells the tale of Brownie Wise, the woman behind the real-life tupperware brand.
Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.
“As a writer-director, Tate has the rare and delicate ability to capture both the romanticism and restrictions of a time and place – in this case 1950′s suburban America,” Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio said. “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.”
Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.
Bullock was last seen in Warner Bros. “Gravity” and Taylor’s next film “Get on Up” bows Aug 1. They are repped by CAA. – Variety
