    Stone To Recreate Thatcher's Reign?

    WENN



    Movie-maker Oliver Stone is lining up another historical figure for his next biopic - former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The director is refusing to let the critical mauling and disastrous box office performance of his latest film Alexander - based on Macedonian warrior Alexander The Great - and is pursuing his current dream of bringing the British leader's life to the big screen. And Stone is determined to land Meryl Streep for the lead role. He says, "Margaret Thatcher is an amazing woman and a good subject for a film. I'm thinking about Meryl Streep to play the Iron Lady." Pals claim Stone - who's documented the lives of shamed President Richard Nixon, assassinated leader John F. Kennedy and rock star Jim Morrison - is now keen to focus his films on some of his female idols. One friends says, "Oliver is one of Baroness Thatcher's greatest fans. Alexander was slammed by critics, so maybe he think it's time to concentrate on a great woman for a film. Thatcher was one of the most powerful political figures in the world and her life has been as colorful as any superstar."

    Oh dear! he might be on another loser there, because I think a lot of the British public don't want to be reminded of Margeret Thatcher's reign. Regards, Decks.

    In one of Alan Clarke's diaries he quotes the lady as saying of the tree American presidents during her reign (Ford/Carter/Reagan) that she was appalled that so much power was in the hands of such idiots. I hope Oliver keeps that line in-otherwise the Life of Maggie will make dull viewing.



    Did anyone see Jennifer Saunders as Maggie in the Comic Strip's Strike?
