The Gravity star would play Brownie, who pioneered parties selling the plastic containers in the 1950s, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The untitled film is based on the non-fiction book Tupperware Unsealed by Bob Kealing and will be directed by The Help's Tate Taylor, with The Fighter producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman also attached.

Tupperware was invented by Earl Silas Tupper but made popular by sales exec Brownie's parties selling the product and she eventually became a household name in America, in 1954 becoming the first woman to appear on the cover of Business Week.

But she eventually fell out with Earl, who pushed her out in 1958 and tried to have her erased from the company records, which her career never recovered from.

Sandra has not signed up to anything new since being Oscar nominated for Gravity, while Tate has recently finished Get On Up, a biopic of James Brown due out on September 26.
