Streep is Thatcher

I’m hesitant to mention this as it’s not confirmed yet and on Monday I’ll only have to retract it and announce Andrew Garfield in the role. Anyway rumour is that Meryl Streep could be playing Margaret Thatcher in a biopic titled The Iron Lady with Jim Broadbent as her husband.

It has been a while since I’ve seen Streep do some proper acting and she is rather good. The fact that Mamma Mia!‘s director Phyllida Lloyd is involved is a little troubling though. And not just because I can’t work out how to say her name.
