George Clooney-produced film hires ‘Pineapple Express’ director…

David Gordon Green (‘Manglehorn,’ ‘Joe,’ ‘Prince Avalanche’) writer-director has reportedly closed a deal to step behind the camera to direct a narrative feature based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary ‘Our Brand Is Crisis.’

With Sandra Bullock attached to star and George Clooney producing, the film focuses on the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia.

Bullock will also serve as executive producer alongside Clooney and his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov. The script comes from Peter Straughan (‘The Men Who Stare at Goats’).
