Brie Larson to star as first female White House candidate Victoria Woodhull.

Oscar-winner Brie Larson is to star in - and produce - a film about the first female White House candidate.

Larson, seen most recently in Free Fire, will play Victoria Woodhull, a suffragette nominated for President of the United States in 1872.

While Woodhull did not win the presidency, she helped in the fight to give women the vote - achieved some 40 years later.
The film, for Amazon Studios, will be written by Ben Kopit.
