Meryl Streep To Play Margaret Thatcher!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm FlickersPolitikMeryl Streep


We smell another Oscar nomination!

Meryl Streep is in talks to play Margaret Thatcher in an upcoming biopic of the former British prime minister.

The film is set in 1982 and follows her as she tries to save her career in the 17 days before the 1982 Falklands War.

Meryl is the perfect choice — we know she'll nail it!

    should be fun to see how the liberals try to re-write history

  2. 2

    The film makers clearly do not have the balls to address the way in which Thatcher handled Northern Ireland and the Hunger Strikers. I admire Meryl so much but Thatcher is a veritable anti Christ and I wish she would croak already.

  3. 3

    She was AWESOME In Julie and Julia. That movie was fantastic because of her and she should have won.

    Also a friend of mine is a waiter and waited on her in Boston and said she is the nicest person. I like her a lot.

  4. 4

    Meryl owns all. She should be queen of the universe!

  5. 5

    Brilliant! I look forward to this.

  6. 6

    This time she WILL win the Oscar. Thatcher: Queen Bitch of all time. The woman who said "There is no such thing as 'society'".

  7. 7

    Margaret T = Boring
    Falklands 1982 war = more Boring

    Skip this project Merrill

    Re: buck – Who are the liberals you refer to? Merrill? You are a stupid fuck, aren't ya?

  9. 9

    Good. Can't wait. No one can portray a character quite like Meryl.

    She's going to need a good makeup artist and a good voice coach to get this right. Thatcher is still around as are films of her so she had better get the look and voice right. I really don't think this is a particularly good idea. She may regret it. Helen Mirren did Queen Elizabeth marvelously. Will Streep be able to match that?

  12. 12

    if anyone can do it meryl streep can

  13. 13

    Oh, just give her the fucking Oscar already !!! No need to even waste the $ making the film.

    Love this woman!!!! All these new little "actresses" can't hold a candle to her. She is a beautiful and regal woman who is aging gracefully. No one has acting abilities like her…she is BRILLIANT! And she seems very down to earth. Another Oscar for Meryl!

    Re: buck – Do you think all of Hollywood is liberal, you are a stupid fuck.

  17. 17

    It is fucks like you that blame everything on the 'liberals' or the 'republicans'. You need a new catch phrase, douche. How old are you? Yeah the 'liberals' are ruining the fucking world. Jump off a building and end it all, already.

  18. 18

    "They" includes Chris Matthews, Olberman, all the rest on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR and every Democrat talking head strategist that opens their collective mouths.
    (Garbage In, Garbage Out)
    The only reason FOX News exists, is because all the people associated with this media, have failed to do their job and in doing so, have failed the Republic, utterly and completely.
    Our MSM is as biased as Pravda.
    It's why you have no one listening to you anymore or buying your papers and magazines.
    The Flopbama Regime has already failed and Americans have spoken
    by turning their backs on you people.

    She is the perfect choice. Meryl Streep is probably the greatest actor, male or female, in history. I just hope the film is accurate and not a hatchet job.

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – Yikes…if Hollywood isn't liberal i'd hate to see your definition

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – and by the way the guy ruining everything now is the marxist-progressive Obama

  22. 22

    Hopefully Thatcher will die first

  23. 23

    How can anybody sit on here and doubt Meryl Streep's acting ability. She is fucking MERYL STREEP. This woman can run circles around these 'actresses' today in her sleep. Like some above posters have said, just give her the oscar.

  24. 24

    She's not ugly enough.

  25. 25

    There is NO ONE like her!

  26. 26

    Only she can do it!

    Re: luvstotango

    NBC nightly news alone has more viewers than Fox at its prime.

    The Fox news echo chamber exists to coddle its viewers into thinking that their extremist views are common. Apparently, they've succeeded. Anything that doesn't support republicans 100% is now considered liberal.

  28. 28

    OK, I did some research on it. Phyllida Lloyd is directing :l

    And Streep had better get the cut-throat bitchness and the accent down to a tee.

    Good luck getting any help from Thatch though

  29. 29

    and did you read the freaking article? it's not about the Falklands War, the other biopic was supposed to be about that

  30. 30

    i guess i am the only one who thinks this role should be given to an english born actress. nvm

    Re: Cattac

    NBC Nightly News PRIMETIME ratings for the week of June 21: 7,190,000
    Fox News DAYTIME ratings for the same week: 7,442,000

    Keep in mind that's NBC's primetime vs. Fox News in the middle of the day. Fox's primetime ratings would be closer to 15,000,000 that week.

    So yeah. Nice try.

    Huge conflict of interest for me as I love Meryl Streep but hate thatcher with a passion (and yes I didn't give her a capital letter on purpose). She had the british army fire on its own citizens, allowed MPs to starve to death and screwed the miners and the working class in the 80s out of their jobs and homes, Meryl's talents are wasted on that bitch.

  33. 33

    BULL'S EYE!!!

  34. 34

    Margaret Thatcher was boring as hell when she was in office, why do they think we'll want to see a movie about her. I would rather see Meryl Streep play Amelia Earhardt and dissapear for real, FOREVER!

  35. 35

    Love her
    should be interesting to see how accurate it stays

    Re: Sexsai – everytime this lady acts she deserves an oscar
