Word leaked out April 28 that Oscar winning actress Sandra Bullock is considering starring in a Tupperware movie.
Well, probably not just Tupperware itself. Plastics molding probably isn’t exciting enough to hold an audience’s attention for two hours. Instead, it’s a movie being shopped around to Hollywood studios based on the book “Tupperware Unsealed” by Bob Kealing, which told the story about how Tupperware inventor Earl Silas Tupper connected with marketing guru Brownie Wise to make the consumer product a household name through Tupperware home parties.
Bullock, who won the Oscar in 2009 for “The Blind Side" and was nominated for her role as an astronaut in last year's "Gravity," would play Wise, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producers for the project, written by Tate Taylor, based on Kealing’s book.
While there’s no guarantee anything will come of the proposed movie or Bullock’s participation, let’s take the opportunity to toss a few title suggestions out there.
“The Polypropylene Side” anyone?
“Miss Congeniality 3: The Tupperware Party?”
Or even “Speed 3: The Race For The Perfect Pickle Keeper!”
Of course here at Plastics News, it is our fervent hope that the movie does come about and is a success — if for no other reason that perhaps it will finally give people another movie line to quote at us, other than that one we’re not repeating here, from “The Graduate.”
