Sandra Bullock appeared this morning in Puerta de Tierra in San Juan with her blonde hair and wearing a cream colored executive set to give life to a political consultant on the film “Our Brand is Crisis”, which is been filmed in Puerto Rico since yesterday and it’s produced by George Clooney.
After completing a long and intense day of filming yesterday at Roosevelt Roads Naval Base in Ceiba, Bullock arrived early in the morning to the facilities of the former School of Tropical Medicine in Old San Juan that simulated the “Hotel Condor” in Bolivia, the country where the plot of the film takes place.
About 8:00 am, the Oscar winner arrived at the set and an hour later was instructed to rehearse a scene in which she gets out of the hotel to encounter a political protest in front of it. For this scene, dozens of extras were hired to walk in circles in what appeared to be a protest where Bolivia flags and signs reading “We are all Bolivia” were shown.
Bullock repeated the scene more than eight times. At the beginning of it, she got out of the hotel and down the stairs watching the protest. As she returned inside to repeat the scene, she was covered by the production crew with a huge black umbrella so that she would not be photographed.
Sandra Bullock arrived in Puerto Rico today (November, 08). Her latest project, Our Brand Is Crisis will be filmed in the country and, according to local sources, she should be there for at least two weeks:

Sandra Bullock is ranked #4 at Vulture’s Most Valuable Stars of 2014 list. The value of a contemporary movie star is determined by factores such as box office numbers, social media buzz, increasing foreign strength and critical respect:
Matthew McConaughey, Sandra’s costar in A Time to Kill and long time friend was honored with 28th American Cinematheque Award. She didn’t attend the cerimony but sent a taped message which included a poem she wrote:
A parade of McConaughey’s costars, past (Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon) and present (Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway from next month’s sci-fi epic “Interstellar”) introduced loosely themed clip packages of the 22 years he has spent acting. There were also videotaped well-wishers, including director Richard Linklater, who gave McConaughey his first signature role in “Dazed and Confused,” and Sandra Bullock, who recited a poem she wrote that boasted many memorable stanzas, including: “Thank you for your friendship, your loyalty and your trust / And thank you for reminding me it’s OK to have a smaller bust.” – LA Times
According to The Wrap, Joaquim de Almeida – known for Fast Five – and Zoe Kazan – known for What If – joined Sandra in Our Brand Is Crisis.
“Fast Five” star Joaquim de Almeida is set to play the male lead opposite Sandra Bullock in David Gordon Green’s political dramedy “Our Brand Is Crisis,” which has also added “What If” star Zoe Kazan to its strong ensemble cast, TheWrap has learned.
“Our Brand Is Crisis” is based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary of the same name, which focused on the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia by President Clinton’s former consultants James Carville and Stan Greenberg.
Bullock will play “Calamity” Jane Bodine, a retired American political consultant, while de Almeida will play Castillo, the former president of Bolivia who’s running for president for the second time in 15 years. No friend to the poor working class, Castillo is cold, aloof and completely out of touch with the common man — but he’s also also suffering from dementia, which sometimes leaves him confused.
Kazan has landed a supporting role as a young woman who digs up dirt on political candidates.
Peter Straughan (“The Men Who Stare at Goats”) wrote the script, and Warner Bros. executives Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste will oversee the project for the studio. Production will start this fall.
