    Kathy Bates will star opposite Sandra Bullock in the forthcoming film The Blind Side, a sports dramedy for Alcon Entertainment.

    The recently announced film is based on the true story of Michael Oher, a football player who is projected to be one of the earliest players selected in this year's NFL draft. Oher had a troubled upbringing and was homeless and destitute when he was taken in by an affluent white family, of which Bullock will play the matriarch. Bates will play the no-nonsense tutor who is hired by Bullock's character to help her raise and educate the boy. The role of Oher has yet to be cast at press time.
