Variety: Sandra Bullock Agrees to Play Wendy Davis in Upcoming Film

November 9th, 2017 8:43 PM

On Thursday night, Variety penned a brief item revealing that actress Sandra Bullock has accepted the role of abortion activist, far-left Texas Democrat, and liberal media darling Wendy Davis in a possible film about Davis’s career. 

Reporter Justin Kroll wrote that Bullock “will star in the spec ‘Let Her Speak’ as Texas senator Wendy Davis, whose 11-hour filibuster helped stall an anti-abortion bill in the Texas state house.”

Kroll proclaimed that Davis was once “a little known Democratic senator who soon became a national icon on the subject of abortion after filibustering for 11 hours in order to stall a bill, and ultimately delaying its passage beyond the midnight deadline for the end of the legislative session.”

The film, which would likely be a liberal media hit but box office dud, is still being “shopped to studios and should court several suitors over the next week.” So, there’s still a chance it might not get off the ground, but with the way Davis has been worshipped over the years, it’s safe to say we’ll all be subjected to more news about this movie.

Kroll concluded with more praise for Bullock, touting her decision:

The role seems right up Bullock’s alley and could be another awards play for the star who won her first Oscar for playing Leigh Anne Tuohy in the real-life story “The Blind Side.” She just wrapped production on Warner Bros.’ “Ocean’s Eleven” spinoff, “Ocean’s Eight,” and is about start filming on the Netflix movie “Bird Box.”

No word in Kroll’s item if the possible film would include how Davis was destroyed in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial election by Republican Greg Abbott, fetching under 39 percent of the vote. Since then, she’s periodically surfaced on cable news (especially MSNBC) to trash conservatives.
