'Iron Lady' movie planned, will focus on Falklands war





LONDON -- A screenplay has been commissioned for a movie about Margaret Thatcher, the strong-willed conservative former prime minister of Britain.

Brian Fillis has been hired to develop the screenplay, which is expected to key on Thatcher's decision to take Britain to war against Argentina over the Falklands in 1982 at a time when her popularity was at its lowest, Daily Variety said Monday...

The film project about Britain's so-called "Iron Lady" is being pursued by Pathe, the company that helped produce "The Queen," in conjunction with the BBC and independent producer Damian Jones, best known for "The History Boys."
