Writer Abi Morgan’s career is career is going from strength to strength, flitting between stage, television and films such as Shame and The Iron Lady. She has another politically charged script with with 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, which saw women fighting for the right to vote. Though Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst were the most famous examples 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.
The soundtrack to the Coen Brothers’ upcoming and already much buzzed about new film “Inside Llewyn Davis” will be released on September 17 via Nonesuch Records. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the folk-inspired album includes 12 songs performed in the film by cast members Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and more.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” marks the Coens’ fourth collaboration with T Bone Burnett. His soundtrack to 2000’s “O Brother Where Art Thou?” nabbed five Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. “Llewyn Davis,” which will be distributed in the US via CBS Films on December 6, premiered at Cannes in May, where it won the Grand Prix. Starring Isaac, Timberlake, Mulligan, and Coen regular John Goodman, it’s a portrait of the folk music scene in 1960s Greenwich Village.
