streep the ‘iron lady’?
Cinema chameleon Meryl Streep’s latest challenge: becoming the Iron Lady.
Pathe Films says the two-time Academy Award winner has expressed an interest in playing Margaret Thatcher in a new film about Britain’s first female prime minister.
The London-based producer and distributor said Thursday that discussions are under way with Streep’s representatives, but no agreement is in place.
Written by Abi Morgan (“Sex Traffic,” “Brick Lane”) the film is provisionally titled “The Iron Lady.” The director is Phyllida
Lloyd, who directed Streep in the ABBA musical “Mamma Mia!”
Filming is expected to start at the end of the year.
