It has been reported that Sandra Bullock is hoping to star as Brownie Wise, the sales executive responsible for the idea of the Tupperware Party and the rise of Tupperware's popularity.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be a period drama lead by 'The Help' director Tate Taylor.  The project is untitled so far.

The script is based on the book 'Tupperware Unsealed' by Bob Kealing, and written by Taylor.

Earl Silas Tupper developed Tupperware and found success in the 1950's after Brownie Wise came up with the idea of having Tupperware parties.

In 1958, Tupper pushed her out and tried his best to remove her from the company records!

Sandra has met with executives but has not been officially tied to the project yet.  Sources say she's been shopping around.
