Back in June, we reported that Meryl Streep had signed on to play influential and controversial British Primer Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. We now have the first image of Streep as Thatcher and if you want to feel a cold chill run up your spine, I highly recommend checking it out. The film, directed by Phyllida Law (Mamma Mia!), is set just before Thatcher took her country to war in the Falklands. The Iron Lady also stars Jim Broadbent as Thatcher’s husband Denis, Anthony Head as her longest-serving cabinet member Geoffrey Howe, Richard E. Grant as conservative politician Michael Heseltine, and Roger Allam has political strategist Gordon Reece.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The Iron Lady is due out later this year.
