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.

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.

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.”

Speed is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary today since it was released on June 10, 1994. It’s known as the movie that kicked off Sandy’s career and we thank director Jan De Bont for sticking with her even when the studio pressured him for another female actress. Can you imagine someone else playing Annie? I can’t.
HitFix has a great article with Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves and Jan De Bont looking back at Speed 20 years later:
There’s a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. As movie premises go, this one is absolutely ridiculous, right? You’d have been forgiven for thinking so, at least, as few involved with Jan de Bont’s “Speed,” which was released by 20th Century Fox on June 10, 1994, could have anticipated its popularity. The film was a runaway hit, winning two Oscars and grossing over $350 million worldwide. Now, 20 years later, it’s a celebrated relic of an era before blockbuster filmmaking was so awash in digital wizardry, an era when practical movie magic sold the highest of concepts to the masses.
This is kind of late news, but thanks to Coming Soon, we can see The Minions first teaser artwork. The movie is set to be released on July 10, 2015.
We’ve got an early look at teaser artwork for Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise spinoff, Minions. Check it out below!
Minions serves as a big screen origin story and showcases the unpredictable personality and physicality of the popular yellow characters.
As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find.
Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s while “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is also attached to voice a character.
The 3D-CG comedy adventure is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and directed by Pierre Coffin. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the film, which is co-directed by Kyle Balda. Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
Minions hits the big screen July 10, 2015.
