TEXAS - Sandra Bullock will portray former Texas Sen. Wendy Davis in a movie about Davis' 11-hour filibuster that helped stall an anti-abortion bill in 2013.

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Bullock, who used to live in Austin, is attached to the script as long as the movie gets a director she likes.

The movie, currently called "Let Her Speak," will cover the day of the filibuster as well as Davis's journey from teen mother living in a trailer park to Harvard-trained lawyer.
