Sandra Bullock Rumour Is Extremely Loud, But Is It Incredibly Close?

Sandra Bullock has been pictured leaving a hotel with director Stephen Daldry. Rather than supposing Bullock and Daldry (who has had relationships with both men and women) were meeting for pleasure, the popular assumption is that they were meeting for business. It's more polite if nothing else.

Just Jared got some snaps, but didn't pretend to know what they might mean; The New York post are inferring that the meeting related to Daldry's in-development movie of Jonathan Safran Foer's 9/11-aftermath novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. But is this just because that's the only pending movie on Daldry's IMDB page?

We might as well kick the ball around a little, though. Is Daldry casting the film now? Or a different film? Will he go for Bullock?

Time, and the trades, will tell.
