On September 19, 2015, during the Women Making History Awards at the Skirball Cultural Center’s National Women’s History Museum in Los Angeles, producer Maria Bello presented an award to actress Viola Davis.

Bello took the opportunity to pitch her idea for the movie in front of the crowd. Davis recalled the audience “went wild” at the idea of seeing her in the lead role of the historical epic.

The Woman King was developed by Bello and producer Cathy Schulman, written by Dana Stevens with contributions by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and directed by Prince-Bythewood.
