I approve. =)
Mama Mia!’s director Phyllida Lloyd is apparently working on Margaret Thatcher biopic for BBC and Pathé, and it seems like Streep is in talks to play Thatcher. EEK! And Jim Broadbent is in talks to play Thatcher’s husband. EEK!
The biopic will center around 1982, during the Falklands War (or Las Malvinas ;P), which lasted 74 days… ultimately, winning her the elections in 1983.

Of course Streep is in talks. Everyone wants Streep to read their script. Who wouldn’t? Right? Plus, Thatcher is such a fascinating contemporary subject. You gotta admit, without Thatcher’s gov. Britain would have continued with the recession… and you’d be worse than you guys are now. Actually, now that I think about it… the Conservatives always get the country in a crappy state, eh? xD
