The Dr. Ryan Stone of 'Gravity' is in negotiations to play a retired political consultant who often uses famous quotes to emphasize her points.
On heels of their successful pairing in commercially- and critically-acclaimed "Gravity", Sandra Bullock and George Clooney could work together again in a new project. According to The Wrap, Bullock is in early negotiations to play in long-gestating movie "Our Brand Is Crisis".
Clooney is producing the upcoming political comedy with Grant Heslov for Warner Bros. It's unclear if "The Descendants" actor will co-star in the film, but the actor who is busy putting finishing touches on "The Monuments Men" is not expected to direct.
"Our Brand Is Crisis" is based on Rachel Boynton's 2005 documentary, which focused on the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia by President Clinton's former consultants James Carville and Stan Greenberg. The script is penned by Peter Straughan ("The Men Who Stare at Goats").
Bullock is rumored being courted to play Jane "Calamity" Bodine, a retired American political consultant who often quotes famous people to help hammer home her talking points.
