A new promotional image has been released today, via Entertainment Weekly, alongside a new interview with Sandra talking about the movie and the sexist attacks a turned all female movie receive. Check it:

The next chapter — or should we say heist? — from the Ocean’s franchise will drop in June with Sandra Bullock as Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister Debbie. She’ll lead a team of thieves (played by Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, and Sarah Paulson, among others) as they crash New York’s Met Gala to swipe a priceless necklace off a celebrity neck. We asked Bullock to take us behind-the-scenes of one of the most anticipated sequels in the long and checkered history of sequels.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You play Debbie Ocean, Danny’s sister. Can you share a little of your backstory?
SANDRA BULLOCK: Well not too much. I mean, I feel like we’re a Marvel film and we’re trying to at least let there be some surprises when the film comes out. Yes, I am Danny Ocean’s sister. I’ve been incarcerated for about five years and you find out why during the course of the film. I mean, that’s sort of a tiny subplot. But that’s, you know, but I’m definitely his sister and we definitely come from the same family and we’re both very good at what we do in our own special way. So you can only imagine that once I get out, that’s when the heist ensues.

Do the gals in your gang fill the archetypes that we’ve seen from the Oceans franchise?
Everyone has their specialty, yes. What’s fun is that it’s not their whole life. And they haven’t been able to do what they’re brilliant at because the industry, if you can call it the industry, the industry of crime hasn’t really allowed them to excel and execute what they’re good at. So you’ll find one who’s a stay-at-home mom with two children who sells things on the QVC. And here comes Debbie Ocean who enlists their help of them, but not because she only wants females. It’s really fun. Imagine all eight of us crammed into a makeup trailer in the morning. You think that it would be disastrous but it was heaven, all of us just sharing information, all of us doing three jobs with families, our other jobs, the juggling. And then we get to shoot this movie together.

What was the dynamic like on the set with all those female stars?
It was so great. I would say, isn’t that funny how with the guys, I don’t remember ever hearing anything about potential discord. But you so get it with women. If there’s ever more than two women in the film there’s rumblings of, “oh, they’re having cat fights.” There was nothing, because I think because of the unique situation of this and because we all are trying to achieve the same thing, we bonded pretty quickly out of necessity and just because we like each other. We all were able to fit in this trailer while we were getting fluffed and folded, and share information. I don’t know how to do this, where did you do this? Oh my God, my son needs a uniform. Oh my God, I have this great website. What do you do in this work situation? How are you internet managing? For the first time in my life I felt there was a sharing of all this information. We all looked at each other and went, why didn’t we know these things before? I realized as women we have been isolated for a while. I don’t even want to touch on that other subject, but women are now taking care of each other. We all were like, okay, let’s just take care of each other for these six months and relish this opportunity we’re being given. But we don’t want it to be just for women. This is not a man-hating. We love the men. There’s men in this movie. We love them. But this one heist needs women.

When it was announced there would be an all-female cast of Ghostbusters, those actresses were put through hell. Has it been the same for the cast of Oceans 8?
They did put them through hell. And I’m still trying to figure out why. Forget what the final product was! There were four or five of the most talented comediennes in that film. Everyone should’ve just taken a breath and said, “let’s see what happens.” It doesn’t take just five people to make a movie. It’s pretty much like around 300. So I keep reminding everybody, if you hate my film remember there’s another 299 people all around me. We’re not a reboot. We’re just a this is what’s happening in 2017. It’s not even a passing of the torch. It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women.

So you have heard some negative comments?
We got some but boy, I mean, I’ll tell you, we’ve got some feisty women that will fight right back. It’s like, let’s just take a breath and let’s just see if we come up with something fun. There should be a moratorium. There should be a rule, you’re not allowed to say anything nasty until after it comes out. Obviously that’s never going to happen.

Is this the start of something wonderful, like an Ocean’s 9 with Emma Stone or something?
How great would that be? I don’t know. I think the mindset was let’s just see if we can make this work, and let’s see if we can get the greatest actors and we did. Let’s see if we can take the original and then make our own version, sort of pay homage to the Ocean series.I don’t like sequels. Well, you know what, I don’t like the sequels that I’ve done. I mean, I should just correct that. My sequels were done in the time where it was sort of, oh, the first one worked, let’s just slap something together for the second one. And that’s not the way things are anymore. Things have changed as people realize we need to step up our game, have something as good if not better. If something strikes a chord, an Ocean’s 9 would be ideal.

Ocean’s 8 hits theaters on June 8.

Posted under Let Her Speak / On 9 November 2017 / 18

Deadline – Sandra Bullock will play Democratic Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis in the upcoming Mario Correa script Let Her Speak.

Davis, in June 25, 2013, hit the national spotlight when, against extraordinary odds, singlehandedly staged a 13-hour filibuster. Her stamina not only thwarted GOP leaders’ plans to enact one of the country’s most restrictive anti-choice laws, but resulted in the most far-reaching Supreme Court victory for reproductive rights in a generation.

Let Her Speak covers that historic day and how a onetime teen mom who became a Harvard-trained lawyer showed the courage to change her own life, along with the lives of American women.

The film is being produced by Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch for Escape Artists, Jonathan Shukat for ShowKat Productions, and Bullock. They will quickly secure a director and lock in the distributor.

Yesterday (November 2) Sandra was on set filming what seem to be a dramatic scene for Bird Box. Her character, Malone, is pregnant, and she’s seen running through the streets. Check some pictures in our gallery:

Sandra was seen yesterday on the set of her new movie, Bird Box, in Los Angeles. The film was first announced back in July. Bird Box is based on an apocalyptic type thriller novel by Josh Malerman, and will be directed by Susanne Bier (The Night Manager). Sandra will play Malone, and her co-star Trevante Rhodes was also pictured on the set.

The director of 1998 Halloween movie Practical Magic — which stars Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as magically-gifted sisters — revealed to Vulture in a new interview that an actual witch put a curse on the film during production.

Griffin Dunne told the outlet that when he began to adapt the script for the movie from Alice Hoffman’s book of the same name, he turned to a witch consultant for help.

While I was developing it, I was never quite sure I had a real handle on the movie because, quite honestly, witches had no great interest to me. But I loved the book and I liked the setting and when I was working with this witch consultant, it occurred to me that I was making a movie about something I do know a lot about — strong women. I grew up in a house with a strong mother and my grandmother.

So I had three generations of formidable women and when I got that into my head, I realized it’s not really about spells and spell books and all that — it’s about a legacy being passed from one generation to another. That helped me understand it, and that understanding came out of these conversations I had with this witch consultant.

Calling the consultant an “intelligent person,” Dunne said he invited her to watch rehearsals for the movie in Los Angeles and to put her up in a nice hotel.

The witch, however, was not pleased. ” ‘You’re not going to buy me off with a hotel room. I want a percentage of the movie. I’m going to have my own Practical Magic cookbook,’ ” Dunne recalled her telling a producer, adding that though she was paid well, the woman wanted “an additional $250,000 dollars.”

Dunne said the producer told her no, which made the witch consultant snap: “She says, ‘I’m going to put a curse on you. I’m putting a curse on this movie, and I’m putting a curse on Griffin.’ ”

The director received a similar voicemail from the woman, in which she threatened him, saying “There is a land of curses!” Calling the message “terrifying,” Dunne added that at one point, the consultant was speaking in tongues. She subsequently sued Warner Brothers.

“So I give the legal department the tape and they can’t listen to it all the way through, either,” recalled Dunne. “They’re so freaked out by it, they just pay the witch off. I don’t know how much, but enough to make her go away.”

Vulture reported that the movie was panned by critics, despite gaining a cult status in later years.

Women, and girls, in particular, were all so moved by it, and it did very well at the box office. But despite that, it had a weird reputation for being a failure. So I don’t give the curse any power, but at the same time, I did come to think that somehow a little stink was put on the movie. It took time for that stink to go away.
