Sandra Bullock Targets Political Comedy ‘Our Brand is Crisis’
Oscar winner Sandra Bullock is set to star in the political comedy Our Brand Is Crisis, based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary of the same name.
Bullock’s Gravity co-star George Clooney is producing with Grant Heslov (The Monuments Men) for Warner Bros. through their Smokehouse Pictures banner.
Our Brand is Crisis is a satirical comedy about American spin doctors competing in the same Presidential election in Bolivia. The film is being directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) with a script by Peter Straughan (The Men Who Stare at Goats).
The documentary followed President Clinton’s former consultants James Carville, Stan Greenberg and a team of political consultants as they launched a media-savvy campaign for Bolivian presidential candidate Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada. Source: Variety
