Sandra Bullock has landed in the sports dramedy "The Blindside" says THR
Based on the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, it tells the true story of football player Michael Oher, a homeless black teen taken in by a well-to-do white family that saw extraordinary promise in him. Oher is one of the first players selected in this year's NFL draft.
Bullock plays Leigh Anne Touhy, the affluent matriarch of the conservative suburban household that takes in Oher.
John Lee Hancock wrote and will call action on the flick.

It's good to see Bullock getting out of the rom-com rut again.
