SAN JUAN – Sandra Bullock is in Puerto Rico to shoot scenes for “Our Brand is Crisis,” a political comedy-drama co-produced by George Clooney.
Hollywood’s highest-paid actress arrived over the weekend at San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, Puerto Rican media outlets said.
David Gordon Green is directing the film, which is based on a 2005 documentary of the same name about the role of prominent U.S. political consultants, including James Carville, in the re-election campaign of Bolivian President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada.
Besides Bullock, the cast includes Scoot McNairy, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie and Ann Dowd.
The film began shooting Sept. 29 in New Orleans and the crew is expected to spend around two weeks in Puerto Rico filming the scenes set in Bolivia.
The Puerto Rican government offers generous incentives to film studios.
