Sexy actress SANDRA BULLOCK is poised to get some 'girl-power' by signing up to star in DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD.
Bullock, still riding high on the box office success of her last movie MISS CONGENIALITY, which $65 million (£43 million) so far in America, will join ELLEN BURSTYN in the new movie, about the relationship between a mother (Burstyn) and her neurotic theatre director daughter (Bullock).
As well as Bullock, WARNER BROS is also said to be keen to land DOUBLE JEOPARDY star ASHLEY JUDD to play Burstyn's character as a younger woman. The film will be the directorial debut of CALLIE KHOURI, who is best known as the writer of THELMA & LOUISE. (CPT/WNWCPO)
