Sandra offered Never Forget role

Sandra Bullock has reportedly been offered the lead role in Never Forget.

Unnamed sources have told Entertainment Weekly that the Blind Side Oscar winner has been approached by studio bosses about the film, which is loosely based on director Robby Kushner's documentary On Moral Grounds.

The drama depicts a woman's quest to "reimburse Holocaust survivors who were swindled out of their heir's insurance policies by a European insurance company".

Since her win in 2009, Sandra has lined up a few projects, including starring opposite Steve Carell in the film adaptation of The Abstinence Teacher and romantic comedy Most Wanted with The Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds.

She is also in talks to co-star with Tom Hanks in the big-screen adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's 9/11 novel Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close, which Stephen Daldry is planning to direct.

The post 9/11 drama centres on a young boy who finds a key that belonged to his late father who died in the World Trade Centre attacks.
