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].”
TheWrap announced on December 2013 that Sandra Bullock was in early talks to star Our Brand is Crisis, produced by her Gravity co-star George Clooney. According to recent news by Project Casting, filming is scheduled to start September 29th in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Neither Sandy or her publicist have confirmed yet, but since the first announcement by TheWrap no one else was rumored to take the role she is rumored to be attached to, so let’s hope this is true!

Sandra Bullock tops Forbes’ 2014 List Of Highest Earning Actresses with $51 million. The second actress on the list is Jennifer Lawrence with $34 million.
On paper, the movie Gravity seemed like a crazy risk. The effects-heavy movie cost upward of $100 million to produce and instead of comic book heroes duking it out, the film featured one woman floating in space for almost the entire 90-minute running time.
Despite the odds, Gravity turned out to be one of the highest-grossing movies of 2013 bringing in $716 million at the global box office. The film was the rare commercial and critical success. Gravity earned 10 Oscar nomination and won seven gold statues.
Gravity star Sandra Bullock didn’t win for Best Actress this year (though she did in 2010 for The Blind Side) but she did walk away with a ton of money. Thanks mostly to Gravity, Bullock tops our 2014 list of the highest-earnings actress with an estimated $51 million in earnings between June 2013 and June 2014. - Forbes
Forbes released their annual list of Most Poweful Actresses and Sandy was ranked second. She was also the Highest Paid Actress of the year!
Sandra Bullock ranks second on our list of the Most Powerful Actresses and 36th on our overall Celebrity 100. In 2009, Bullock had a huge financial and critical hit with The Blind Side. After winning the Best Actress Oscar for the movie, Bullock took some time out of the limelight.
In 2013, she was back with a vengeance. Her comedy The Heat earned $230 million at the global box office (and showed that an action comedy with two female leads can be a big money maker).
But that was small potatoes compared to Gravity. The risky film, which features Bullock floating alone in space for much of its 93 minutes, was one of the biggest hits of 2013, earning $716 million at the worldwide and seven Oscars. Bullock will next be heard (but not seen) in The Minions, a spin-off of the popular Despicable Me franchise. Bullock earned an estimated $51 million in the past year.
Movies based on original ideas, as opposed to comic books or young adult novels, are rare these days in Hollywood. Movies based on original ideas that cost $100 million to produce and feature one actress for the majority of the screen time are even rarer but director Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros. had a huge hit with “Gravity.” Much of that success can be chalked up to Sandra Bullock’s gripping performance as Ryan Stone. Not only did the film win seven Oscars but it also helped Bullock become this year’s highest-paid actress.
Sandra Bullock was named Best Actress at 40th Saturn Awards held by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films on June 26, 2014 in Burbank, California. Gravity was the top winner of the night winning 5 awards. Congratulations to Sandy, Alfonso and everyone else involved in the movie. Here full list of Gravity wins:

As you may all know, there were recent rumors about Sandra Bullock dating Chris Evans. According to Entertainment Wise, she joked about the rumors when asked if she was dating the star of Captain America:
The Gravity actress has been romantically linked to the Captain America actor after the pair were spotted enjyoing a dinner date with pals in Los Angeles last month.
However, the actress is taking the rumours on the chin and even joked about their supposed relationship during a recent interview.
“I’ll tell you what happened. We’ve since married. And it just started breaking apart and now we’re filing for divorce. And I hope everyone can respect our privacy,” the 49-year-old quipped to Entertainment Tonight.
Going on to add: “But we’re gonna remain friends and share the responsibility of the farm animals we’ve taken on, because you can just abandon the animals.”

Bad news! Apparently, someone broke into Sandy’s house today around 6:30 a.m while she was home. Good news is that Police was fast and arrested the person so he didn’t manage to get inside the house. Everything seems to be okay and no one got hurt. LA Times and TMZ reported the incident:
Police arrested a “hot prowler suspect” on the West Los Angeles property of actress Sandra Bullock on Sunday morning. The 39-year-old man was in the yard “checking out the house” when police arrived shortly after 6:30 a.m., according to Muria Vanegas of the Los Angeles Police Department. As of 9 a.m., he was in custody awaiting charges.
The man did not enter the house of the 49-year-old Oscar-winner, best known for such films as “Gravity,” “The Blind Side” and “Speed.” – LA Times
Sandra Bullock’s home was broken into early Sunday morning … and the actress was home. Law enforcement sources tell us they arrested a man early this morning for allegedly breaking into Bullock’s Los Angeles home around 6:30 a.m. We’re told Bullock was home … but she was not hurt.
It’s unclear if the man who broke in was attempting to burglarize the home or if it was a stalking case … but police are investigating. We reached out to a rep for Bullock … so far, no word back. – TMZ
