According to The Hollywood Reporter, Academy Award victor Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, The Heat, Gravity) is in talks to star in Netflix's post-apocalyptic thriller Bird Box. Of course, with Heisserer and Bier, Bird Box is in good hands, and Bullock has shown she knows how to play a mother desperate for survival in an extreme situation.
Facing a perilous 20 mile journey on a small rowing boat while blindfolded, the family will have to rely on her wits and her children's trained ears.
Nope, doesn't sound like Sandra gonna be having much fun!
Netflix film chief Scott Stuber (Ted, Patriots Day) will produce Bird Box for an August production start. It should arrive on Netflix sometime next year. The project assembles two Oscar winners in Bullock and Bier, the latter who won in the foreign-language category for In a Better World (Bullock took home the best actress Academy Award for The Blind Side), while Heisserer was a nominee for The Arrival.
Bullock will be seen next summer leading director Gary Ross's all-star cast in the all-female spin-off Ocean's Eight.
Bier is handled by CAA and manager Missy Malkin.
