Murder defendant Andrea Sneiderman (left), and actress Sandra Bullock.
DECATUR, GA -- A motion filed in the Andrea Sneiderman murder case claims the defendant would like for Sandra Bullock to play the role of Andrea Sneiderman in a movie. Mrs. Sneiderman is accused of murder in the shooting death of her husband, Rusty, outside a Dunwoody day care in November 2010.
The motion refers to the transcript of a phone conversation recorded at the DeKalb County jail in August between Mrs. Sneiderman and her friend Joseph Dell. In it, Mrs. Sneiderman says: "I was thinking if Sandra Bullock wasn't so old, she'd be a good choice. I watched the Miss Congeniality movie, like the second one or something, and I thought that she kind of has my personality. So, you know, that would be a good choice but I think she might be a little too old."
No movie is publicly in the works. Sandra Bullock is 48 years old. Mrs. Sneiderman is 36.

The same court filing also indicates that Mrs. Sneiderman has pondered a book about the case. It refers to the transcript of another conversation she had with Dell while she was jailed. In it, she asks Dell "every day or every couple of days, you could jot a couple notes down" to keep track of the case "when this book comes out one day or movie or etc."
The brief was filed by the attorney representing the ex-wife of Hemy Neuman, who is serving a life sentence for the killing of Rusty Sneiderman. Prosecutors contended Neuman was obsessed with Mrs. Sneiderman when they worked together. The brief seeks to suppress subpoenas served to Ariela Neuman by Mrs. Sneiderman's attorneys.
In the brief, attorney Esther Panitch writes "It is the height of hypocrisy that the same Defendant who has already chosen the actress to play her in the movie about her life would seek to impeach a victim of her own wretched acts. Notwithstanding the objection, Ariela Neuman has not sold her life rights or otherwise entered into any contract to sell her name or pictures, nor written a book, unlike Defendant's desire to do so."
The attorneys in the case are under a gag order and unable to comment publicly.
