Sandra Bullock's next role ... will involve Tupperware?

We can see why director Tate Taylor is eyeing Sandra Bullock for an upcoming project. If anyone could make the world see a movie about Tupperware, it's Sandy B.

The actress is reportedly in talks to portray Brownie Wise, the sales exec who changed the fate of Tupperware when she began throwing Tupperware parties in the 1950s.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "The Help" helmer Taylor has already met with Bullock about the project; while she's interested, she's not attached to the role yet.

Taylor is also the writer of the project, adapting it from Bob Kealing's nonfiction book "Tupperware Unsealed."

'Star Wars': Digging for dirt on Daisy Ridley

Tuesday brought the biggest "Star Wars: Episode VII" info dump we've had in a while, and it managed to do so without really telling us anything at all.

For example, we know who's been cast - but not who they'll portray. And while we know a little about the background of some of the movie's newer names, actor Daisy Ridley is so unknown the best pictures of her are her headshots.

Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o in talks for 'Jungle Book'

Jon Favreau's live-action "Jungle Book" is eyeing some major star power.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o are discussing joining the project.

Since "The Jungle Book" is the story of a boy who comes of age among animals, Johansson and Nyong'o would (obviously) be signing on for voice work. Nyong'o could potentially voice Rakcha, the wolf mother who adopts Mowgli, while Johansson would be the voice of the python Kaa.

The two actresses, should they both officially join the film, would co-star alongside Idris Elba, who's already been cast as the voice of the villainous tiger, Shere Khan.
