Margaret Thatcher's Life to Get Depicted on the Big Screen

March 21, 2007 (2:00 am) GMT
Pathe Pictures International and BBC TV will develop a biopic of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

In the wake of the success scored by "", Pathe Pictures International, one of the financiers of the award-winning film, is joining forces with BBC Films to make a biopic about former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who took the position from 1979 to 1990.

Said to center on the seventeen days before the 1982 Falklands War, the project has already had Brian Fillis onboard to pen the script with Damian Jones serving as the producer. Jones previously devised the concept with Fillis, who made his screenwriting debut last year through BBC TV biopic "Fear of Fanny."

Thatcher, the longest-serving British Prime Minister since Lord Salisbury, initially was immensely unpopular during her first couple years of reign. However, things delightfully changed after she took a bold decision to send a task force to the South Atlantic to retrieve Falkland Islands from Argentine Republic.
