Sandra Bullock is set to star in David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis, sources have confirmed. The film, written by Peter Straughan, is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name. The doc followed American political campaign marketing tactics in the 2002 Bolivian presidential election, which saw Evo Morales lose to Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada.

According to Variety, which first reported the news, Bullock has been in talks for the political dramedy for months now. Bullock will also serve as an executive producer on the film alongside George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures.
