Sandra Bullock to play U.S. senator in new movie

Sandra Bullock has signed on to portray U.S. Senator Wendy Davis in a new film.
The Blind Side actress will star in Let Her Speak if her preferred director signs on to the project.
Davis is known for staging a 13-hour debate about abortion rights on the Congressional floor, known as a filibuster, in an attempt to block Republican senators’ efforts to pass a restrictive anti-choice law in 2013. The film will centre on the day of the hours-long speech and Davis’ life as a single, teen mother who later graduated from Harvard University’s prestigious law school.
It is unclear when the new film will go into production, but moviemakers are currently searching for a director, according to Deadline.com.
