Shocker: Meryl Streep turn as Margret Thatcher still doesn't have a U.S. distributor
There is a long list of highly anticipated films debuting at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but one picture that isn't screening could make the biggest long term noise.
The independently financied "Iron Lady" starring Meryl Streep as the iconic former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher still doesn't have a U.S. distributor. Obviously easy Oscar bait, "The Iron Lady" could be a strong performer playing the awards season game this December. In anticipation of locking down a deal with a number of potential suitors next month during the festival, the producers released another still from the film featuring Streep's uncanny metamorphosis into one of the key global political figures of the 1980's. The photo depicts Jim Broadbent as Thatcher's husband Denis and Thatcher at the 1980 Conservative Party conference where The Iron Lady was first dubbed "The Fighting Lady."
Needless to say and regardless of who distributes, "The Iron Lady" has become a must-see later this year.
