Our Brand is Crisis': More details emerge on George Clooney's NOLA-shot political dramedy

As cameras roll in New Orleans on George Clooney and Sandra Bullock's "Our Brand is Crisis," parent studio Warner Bros. is revealing a few more details about the production.

Based on the 2005 documentary of the same name, the film -- as previously described -- focuses on the exporting of American political strategies to South America. In a recent news release announcing the start of production, Warner Bros. expanded on that.

Directed by David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express," "George Washington"), the film will see Bullock portraying a retired political consultant known as "Calamity Jane" who is recruited to help the campaign of an unpopular Bolivian president. Billy Bob Thornton will play a political rival of hers who signs up to work for her candidate's opponent.

The studio-provided synopsis:

When a group of American consultants accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected, they realize they need help. Tracking down retired maverick political consultant Jane Bodine (Bullock) to her cabin in the woods, they persuade her to lead the team -- a decision they quickly come to regret, as "Calamity" Jane begins to live up to her nickname, unleashing her very own brand of chaos on the campaign. Just as all seems lost, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), Jane's worst enemy, arrives in town to work for the opposition. Suddenly things become personal and as the battle begins the consultants get to see Jane the legend in action.

New Orleans native Anthony Mackie will co-star, part of a cast that includes Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, Reynaldo Pacheco, Dominic Flores, Louis Arcella and Joaquim de Almeida. It's unclear if New Orleans-based political consultant James Carville -- who figures prominently in the documentary on which the film is based -- will play a role.

It's also unclear what on-screen role, if any, Clooney will play in the film, although he is producing with Grant Heslov. Clooney and Heslov are the same duo behind 2012's Oscar-winning "Argo." Bullock is also earning a producing credit on "Our Brand is Crisis."

Executive producers include Participant Media's Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, as well as Stuart Besser. Behind-the-scenes principals include cinematographer Tim Orr, editor Colin Patton, production designer Richard A. Wright and costume designer Jenny Eagan.

"Our Brand is Crisis" is one of a number of film and TV productions either shooting or preparing to shoot in Louisiana. Others include the Warner Bros.-backed action film "Geostorm," starring Gerard Butler; the action-comedy "Mr. Right," starring Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick; and the biopic "Trumbo," starring Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren.

To tell you the truth Nicky when G disappeared I quit watching the film. So I never watched the entire Gravity. And now he is not going to be in this film. Sigh. He and Sandra should make an entire film together.

I knew he came back in the beginning of the film, when she was sitting in that pod and he helped her...

Did he come back during the end of the film as well?????

Good thing I bought the DVD.  Now I have to watch the end of the film. Thanks Nicky. bounce

I'm wondering if Bullock is playing the part of the (rewritten) 'Carville' character, and Billy Bob Thornton is the nemesis political operative.

Haven't been to imdb for a while...

Anthony Mackie could be the idealistic campaign worker whose perspective drives the story... Just speculating here, from what I remember of the original screenplay.

GRAVITY is a terrific film. Have seen it in cinema for three times and two of them on IMAX screen. Later more times at home. It's really great and I'd love to see it many times even without George in it. You should try to see it through honestly. Very Happy
