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.
