Oh, Goodie: Sandra Bullock Set To Portray Wendy Davis In New Movie

Oh, Goodie: Sandra Bullock Set To Portray Wendy Davis In New Movie”

Sandra Bullock is slated to fill former state Senator Wendy Davis' famous pink sneakers in an upcoming film about her life and the 11-hour filibuster that propelled her into the national spotlight.

The role seems right up Bullock's alley and could be another awards play for the star who won her first Oscar for playing Leigh Anne Tuohy in the real-life story "The Blind Side".

Wendy Davis in "Let Her Speak", under the provision she gets to work with a director she likes - reports Deadline.

Let Her Speak will focus on that historic day.

The new movie will be produced by Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal through their Escape Artists banner with Mario Correa penning the script. Word is now they are quickly working towards finding a director and distributor. Bullock is repped by CAA.

The bill passed in a later session that summer, however, and Gov. Rick Perry signed it into law. Many hoped that the popularity meant she was the next rising star, but when Davis made a decision to run for Governor in 2014 she lost to Republican Greg Abbott in a landslide.

Mr. Abbott handily defeated the Democrat with 59.3 percent of the vote compared to her 38.9 percent.
