When I see Meryl Streep on screen bringing the noise on the acting front, I want to just weep with joy at how solid this classy women is at her craft. She can play funny like a comedian on steroids and turn the dial up on the drama like a teenager who gets her I-Phone taken away. Anything she is attached to, I am attached to.
So it looks like I am going to the local multiplex to see the biopic of Margaret Thatcher. According to THR, Meryl Streep is discussing the possibility of re-teaming with "Mamma Mia!" director Phyllida Lloyd for "The Iron Lady". The film is a biopic about former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Streep would be portraying the famous political figure.
The film is set to start shooting at the end of the year and Jim Broadbent is in talks to play Denis, "The First Husband" if you will. I wasn't a huge fan of "Julie & Julia" but Streep owned the role as Julia Child. I actually forgot it wasn't actually her while watching the film. I had to remind myself, "not a documentary".
