Sandra to Help Holocaust Survivors in "Never Forget"

Screen Gems is currently in talks with Sandra Bullock to star in their "Never Forget" film, which is loosely based on the documentary "On Moral Grounds," which depicts one woman's quest to reimburse Holocaust survivors who were swindle out of their heir's insurance policies by a European insurance company.

There is no guarantee that Bullock will take the role, since she has recently passed on New Line's "Our Wild Life," about an animal conservationist in Kenya who devoted her life to preventing the extinction of elephants. She also passed on Disney's "The Odd Life" about a family whose lives are touched by an unexpected child.

At this point, the only movie she is actually attached to is the adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's 9/11 novel "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," which co-stars Tom Hanks and is about a young boy who finds a key that belonged to his late father who died in the World Trace Center attacks.
