Variety reports Sandra Bullock is set to star in the George Clooney–produced Our Brand Is Crisis, an adaptation of the 2005 documentary about the use of American campaign tactics in the 2002 Bolivian presidential election. She had been in talks for months, but finally signed on after David Gordon Green committed to direct. Also, she was just happy to be on solid ground again and not almost space-dying for 90 minutes straight.
