Lulu Wilson, 13, known for her roles in Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” HBO’s “Sharp Objects” and the horror prequel “Annabelle: Creation,” has been picked to play young Gloria Steinem in the biopic “The Glorias: A Life on the Road,” which Julie Taymor is writing and directing.

Deadline Hollywood reports that the film will be based on Steinem’s memoir of the same title.

Julianne Moore will play Steinem, according Deadline, and Alicia Vikander is in negotiations to play the feminist and activist from ages 20 to 40. Bette Midler is also in talks to join the film in a supporting role.

The film will follow Steinem’s journey to become a crusader for equal rights and her trailblazing work as a journalist, activist and organizer.

Page Fifty-Four Pictures’ Alex Saks is producing with Taymor and Lynn Hendee. Steinem and Amy Richards are executive producers.

Filming is slated to begin next year in Savannah, Georgia, according to Deadline.
