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
