Hollywood apparently wants to keep losing money. Remember liberal Democrat Wendy Davis? She was the one who did the filibuster in Texas wearing pink sneakers and was held up by the media as a hero. A movie is now being made about her starring Sandra Bullock.
Sandra Bullock to Star as Filibustering Senator Wendy Davis in ‘Let Her Speak’
Sandra 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.
Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal are on board to produce through their Escape Artists banner.
At the time, Davis was 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 bill would have included more restrictive abortion regulations for Texas and would have closed all abortion clinics in the state.
Mario Correa penned the spec.
The package will now be shopped to studios and should court several suitors over the next week.
Who do they think is going to pay money to see this movie?
