Helena Bonham Carter is in talks to co-star with Carey Mulligan in the period piece “Suffragette.”

Pathe Films and Film4 are co-financing the film and Sarah Gavron is directing.

Based on true events, the story revolves around the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement: women who were forced underground in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

The film will be produced by Faye Ward and Alison Owen and executive produced by Film4’s Katherine Butler and Pathe’s Cameron McCracken.

Bonham Carter was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in BBC telepic “Burton and Taylor.” She can be seen next in Disney’s “Cinderella” as the Fairy Godmother.

She is repped by WME, the Schiff Company and Conway van Gelder Grant.
