Austin director David Gordon Green is teaming up with Austin actress Sandra Bullock for a political dramedy titled “Our Brand Is Crisis,” a fictional remake of a 2005 documentary about how James Carville and his band of consultants helped elect an unpopular candidate in a 2003 Bolivian election, Variety reports.

Citing unnamed sources, Variety says that Warners has greenlit the project ant that Bullock has had a meeting with Green and decided to do the movie. Bullock is reportedly teaming up with George Clooney and Grant Heslov to produce the movie.

Bullock is currently attached to the Sony pic “Tupperware Unsealed” which revolves around the inventor of Tupperware, Variety reports. Green’s most recent film “Manglehorn,” starring Al Pacino and Holly Hunter and shot in Austin, will premiere at the Toronto Film Fest.
