Sandra Bullock is set to star as Texas Senator Wendy Davis.
The Texas Senator is best known for 11-hour filibuster helped stall an anti-abortion bill in the Texas state house.
At the time, Davis was a little known Democratic senator who soon became a national icon on the subject of abortion after filibustering for 11 hours in order to stall a bill, and ultimately delaying its passage beyond the midnight deadline for the end of the legislative session. The bill would have included more restrictive abortion regulations for Texas and would have closed all abortion clinics in the state.
Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal will produce via their Escape Artists banner.
