Larson To Produce Victoria Woodhull Biopic

Brie Larson is slated to produce a new biopic about Victoria Woodhull, the first female candidate for the presidency of the United States, which has been acquired by Amazon Studios.

Woodhull was a suffragist who became the first woman to run and be nominated for President of the United States in 1872, more than four decades before women had the right to vote. She was a women’s liberator, non-conformist, conniver, narcissist, politician, and rebel raised by a con-artist father.

Ben Kopit will write the script while Lloyd Braun and Andrew Mittman will produce.
