If you thought the premise for “Most Wanted,” the movie Sandra Bullock has signed on to, sounded a little off for a woman who just took home an Oscar, you weren’t alone.
The Monday following Bullock's announcement at the MTV Movie Awards that she wasn’t, in fact, done with acting, EW learned that Bullock planned to return to “The Proposal” territory by teaming up with Ryan Reynolds again for the action comedy about a criminal (Bullock) and a U.S. Marshall (Reynolds) forced to go on the run after being ambushed on their way to court.
However, after people scratched their heads in wonder that Bullock would go down that road again now that she could have her pick of dramatic roles, a rep clarified what exactly "signed on to" meant.
"[Bullock] is simply attached to the project, which is currently in development,” the rep told the L.A. Times. To be clear, the rep added, this is not her next film.
"There are several projects of many different genres that Ms. Bullock is presently considering and has not committed to any of them at this time,” the rep said. “The next project that will follow her Oscar will be chosen carefully and with a great deal of thought."
