Sandra Bullock is reportedly in talks to portray Tupperware party pioneer Brownie Wise in a new biopic.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that The Help director Tate Taylor wants the Gravity star to play the sales executive who brought women together over storage containers.

Taylor is adapting journalist Bob Kealing's book Tupperware Unsealed: Brownie Wise, Earl Tupper and Home Party Pioneers for the big screen.

Kealing investigated Wise's troubled life and career and discovered Tupperware bosses fired her under mysterious circumstances and then attempted to play down her role in the company's success.
