How do you keep Tupperware fresh in 2014? The answer may be Sandra Bullock.
The 49-year-old actress is rumoured to be circling for the opportunity to portray Tupperware sales executive Brownie Wise in an adaptation of Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book, Tupperware Unsealed, directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor.
While the Blind Side actress has expressed interest in playing the part and reportedly met with Tate, there has been no official confirmation that she’s received the role.
Tupperware Unsealed tells the story of Brownie Wise, whose “party plan” Tupperware marketing idea put the container company on the map and secured the tenacious business woman the first ever female appearance on the cover of Business Week. Behind the scenes, the charismatic figurehead was stalked by an alcoholic ex-husband.
Since floating in space for her Oscar-nominated role in Gravity, Sandra has been rumoured to be considering parts in films Perfect Heist and the George Clooney-produced political comedy Our Brand in Crisis.
But it sounds like she’s most excited about playing with plastics.
