Oscar winner Sandra Bullock will play Wendy Davis in an upcoming biopic about the former Fort Worth state senator, according to multiple reports Thursday.

The film, "Let Her Speak," will focus on Davis' filibuster against an abortion bill in 2013, Deadline reported.

Davis, a Democrat, drew national attention when she stood and spoke for more than 11 hours on June 25, 2013, on the floor of the Texas Senate.

The filibuster delayed a vote on the abortion bill, but it was passed several weeks later during a second special session.
