It’s been a while since we heard news about a new project featuring Sandra Bullock. But according with Showbiz 411, Sandra agreed to star in “Bird Box,” directed by Susanne Bier (The Night Manager).

“Bird Box” is based on an apocalyptic type thriller novel by Josh Malerman published in 2014. Bullock would play main character Malorie, mother of a pair of 4 year olds, trying to survive in the post-apocalyptic age.

The book received mixed reviews, so hopefully the screenplay by Eric Heisserer will come up with something more satisfying. Dylan Clark and Clayton Townsend are producing. Back in 2013, there were reports of a different director and producers, but the property was sold to Universal.

The information is being shared by The Tracking Board and while I’m labeling as ‘rumoured project’, I really hope this is true.

Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock are attached to star in the UNTITLED WAR OF THE ROSES PROJECT. The currently untitled War of the Roses style divorce comedy follows a couple who host a HSN/QVC show who trudge through their divorce on air. Pitt and Bullock will play the male and female lead, respectively.

The project is currently in development, and will be produced by Pitt and Dede Gardner for Plan B Entertainment. Brad Weston and Pam Abby will oversee for New Regency, while Sarah Esberg will oversee production. The A-list comedy is currently OWA.

We reported earlier that Sandy was in talks to be on Annie remake. But Deadline reported today that Cameron Diaz will be on the movie instead. No reason has been given.

Sony’s Columbia Pictures just concluded the negotiations with Cameron Diaz today for the updated moppet movie musical starting production in the fall for a Christmas 2014 release. Sandra Bullock had been in talks for the role in Annie but pulled out recently.

I have posted here about Sandy being in talks to be Eastwook’s daughter on his next movie “Trouble with the Curve”, but it seems Sandy and Warner Bros. have been unable to come to terms.

The days of Clint Eastwood acting in films he didn’t also direct were supposed to be over. Heck, the days where Eastwood acted in films he did direct were supposed to be winding down, too. But with his planned Beyonce-starring A Star Is Born delayed by Beyonce’s pregnancy word broke last week that Eastwood was looking seriously at starring in his business partner and frequent AD Robert Lorenz’s directing debut Trouble With The Curve.

Eastwood would play an aging baseball scout with failing eyesight who travels to Atlanta with his daughter to scout a young prospect. The big question when that news broke was who would play Eastwood’s daughter.

Well, Twitch has learned that producers – which, in this case means Eastwood and Lorenz as their company Malpaso has the lead on the film – are now in talks with Sandra Bullock to fill that part. This would represent another major step in Bullock’s evolution as she continues to look for more serious parts to work in amidst the comedy parts that have made her a star.

There is no proposed start date yet but given Eastwood and Lorenz’s historical working methods expect this to go fast once all the deals are in place.

Pals Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds can be reunited again.

Sandy deal isn’t closed yet, but both are in talks to lead the voice cast of And Then There Was Gordon, from Reynolds and Allan Loeb’s production shingle, Dark Fire, and 20th Century Fox TV.

The animated comedy project is about an ordinary child surrounded by brainiac siblings. It received a presentation order from Fox, home to Sunday evening’s animation domination block of such shows as The Simpsons and Family Guy. Reynolds and Loeb would co-write the script as well as executive produce. Joining the pair as EPs are Bullock, Steven Pearl and Jonathon Komack Martin.
