Sandra Bullock to Star in ‘Tupperware’ Tale for Sony Pictures

Sony Pictures has acquired rights to the novel “Tupperware Unsealed” with Sandra Bullock attached to star and Tate Taylor on board to direct.

Taylor will also adapt the script with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Entertainment producing along with Tom Shelly of Steele Mill Productions.

Story tells the tale of Brownie Wise, the woman behind the real-life tupperware brand.

Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.

“As a writer-director, Tate has the rare and delicate ability to capture both the romanticism and restrictions of a time and place – in this case 1950’s suburban America,” Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio said. “His characters are both immediately recognizable while also uniquely iconic. Such was the magic of Brownie Wise. There is no one better than Sandy to play Brownie — they share a fierce bravery and independent spirit.”

Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.

Bullock was last seen in Warner Bros. “Gravity” and Taylor’s next film “Get on Up” bows Aug 1. They are repped by CAA.
