Sandra Bullock will star in “Let Her Speak,” a drama about Democratic Texas senator Wendy Davis whose eleven-hour filibuster helped stall an anti-abortion bill in the Texas state house.
Though little known at the time, David became a national icon on the subject of abortion after filibustering for eleven hours in order to stall a bill – ultimately delaying its passage beyond the midnight deadline for the end of the legislative session.
Said bill would have included more restrictive abortion regulations for Texas and would have closed all abortion clinics in the state. Mario Correa penned the spec script.
Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal will produce through their Escape Artists banner and the package will be shopped to studios over the next week.
