Meryl Streep to Play Maggie Thatcher in “Iron Lady”

One of the last leaders who had spine and could say no.  Her advice to Bush 41, who was wavering on the first Gulf War, “Don’t go wobbly on me now George,” was classic.

She was referred to sometimes as “Reagan with balls.”  Her famous line,  “T.I.N.A” –  There  Is No Alternative – will be appropriate during the public sector restructuring, which is coming and will be both painful and full of strife.   The government’s “free lunch” is pretty much spent.

Regardless of your politics you had to respect her for toughness and leadership.  Meryl’s resemblance of the Iron Lady is striking.  Here is Deadline London‘s take on the movie,

Pathé UK has released the first shot of Meryl Streep as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Streep is in the 2nd week of filming The Iron Lady here in London. It’s the first feature from director Phyllida since she directed Streep in Mamma Mia. Jim Broadbent plays Thatcher’s husband Dennis. Damian Jones is the producer. Fox will release here in Britain through its output deal with Pathé, which is handling international sales itself. Pathé will unveil footage at Cannes. North American rights are still unsold. “I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses – I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own,” says Streep.

    Nobody does it better than Meryl Streep! Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Afre Woodard, Lynn Whitfield, Loretta Divine, Ashley Judd and only a smidgen of others (Katie Holmes Cheryl Lee Ralph, Taraji P Henson (who is about to mess up real bad, trying to break into comedy rather than develop the tremendous potential that she’s shown in the past, and also Janet Jackson has proven that she has an untapped reservoir down inside), are the only true starlets nowadays!

    Hopefully, aspiring actresses and some of those pathetic celebrities we see paraded across the screens nowadays will study these ladies and learn how to bring true passion, personality and flair to the screen!

    Can’t wait to see Meryl Streep do it again!
