Sandra Bullock setting up marital drama at Warner Bros.

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Have you ever heard the famous bit of homespun Texas wisdom, “You dance with the one who brung you?” Bet Sandra Bullock, who has adopted the Lone Star state, knows it, so it makes sense to learn the actress is sticking with Warner Bros., the studio that successfully guided Bullock to her first Oscar with last year’s “The Blind Side.”

Coincidentally, Warner has attached Bullock to a project that reunites her with Anne Fletcher, the director who helped power “The Proposal” to $163.9 million for Buena Vista. It’s an easy gamble betting on Fletcher and Bullock’s chemistry, though. Rumor has it they’re also developing a bounty hunter comedy with “Proposal” eye candy Ryan Reynolds over at Universal.

As for Bullock and Fletcher’s Warner project, the Hollywood Reporter notes it will be a “contemporary-set project … described as being in the vein of ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and Paul Mazursky’s 1978 film ‘An Unmarried Woman,’ which starred Jill Clayburgh as a woman confronting a crumbling marriage.”

That certainly sounds like material Bullock could sink her teeth into, given her recent personal issues. No word on how this deal will affect other projects Bullock has been circling, including the lead role in Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi drama “Gravity” and an adaptation of “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” with Tom Hanks.
