Suffragettes will center on a group of militant British women who fight for the right to vote, and be in the vein of Nigel Cole’s comedy-drama Made in Dagenham.

Sarah Gavron is attached to direct, with production set to commence once she’s done with documentary The Edge of the World.

Morgan currently has two screenplays in different stages of production: Steve McQueen’s Shame, starring Carey Mulligan and Michael Fassbender; and Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent. Both of which are due to be unveiled later this year.
