George Clooney is behind the camera on this production. He is serving as the film’s producer and Sandra Bullock (‘Gravity‘) will star as well as produce. The film is a political comedy based on the 2005 documentary by Rachel Boynton. The film will be about American politics in South America  and how U.S. strategists attempt to mold the opinions and course of elections in South America through smear campaigns and other underhanded tactics.

In the Rachel Boynton documentary, “Our Brand is Crisis“, the filmmaker followed a consulting firm called Greenberg Carville Shrum. More specifically, they followed the campaign of Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada in South America as it went horribly wrong. Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada also called “Goni” had been President a decade back and oversaw the privatization of Bolivia’s economy which sold off national assets to private companies.
