Carey Mulligan In Talks For The Fury
She's considering the suffragette drama

24 July 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

Writer Abi Morgan’s career is going from strength to strength, between stage, television and films like Shame and The Iron Lady. She has another politically charged script, The Fury, ready to go, and Shame’s Carey Mulligan is now in talks to take one of the lead roles.

From the sound of it, The Fury will also be something of a reunion for Morgan and Sarah Gavron, who directed Morgan’s first screenplay, the adaptation of Monica Ali’s Brick Lane.

Most of the details about The Fury are being kept quiet for now, though we do know it’ll be an ensemble piece that follows several members of the suffragist movement that saw women fighting for the right to vote. Though Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst were the most famous figures of the movement, there are many stories to be told about the time, so we’d expect the new film to weave together several examples.

Focus Features and Film 4 are working together to back this one, but there’s no word on a start date yet. Mulligan will next show up in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, which is out on January 24. Morgan’s next film will be Ralph Fiennes’ Charles Dickens film The Invisible Woman, due to be released on February 7.
