Hilary Swank Votes For 'Iron Jawed Angels'[Friday, June 14th, 2002]
HBO has signed star Hilary Swank (Oscar-winning "Boys Don't Cry") to topline "Iron Jawed Angels," reports Variety.
The film is about suffragist Alice Paul who, with fellow suffragist Lucy Burns, was a turn-of-the-last-century radical whose efforts to win voting rights for women led to imprisonment.
Swank will take the role of Alice Paul and Katja Von Garnier is set to direct.
Sally Robinson has written the script.
"Iron Jawed Angels" begins shooting in the fall.
