David Gordon Green‘s Our Brand Is Crisis, a political dramedy with Sandra Bullock, Scoot McNairy, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, Ann Dowd, Joaquim de Almeida and Zoe Kazan, is being research-screened on Tuesday evening in the Los Angeles area. It was previously screened for a test audience in Pasadena’s Old Town on Monday, 4.27. That tells me that a 2015 release date (probably sometime in October or November) is at least a distinct possibility. The Warner Bros./Participant film, produced by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, is an adaptation of Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary, which focused on the American political campaign strategies used by Greenberg Carville Shrum (GCS) in the 2002 Bolivian presidential election. Green began shooting in New Orleans on 9.29.14 and presumably wrapped before year’s end.
