The French production company that helped bring "The Queen" to the big screen is turning its attention to another British female icon: Margaret Thatcher. The film will focus on one of the former prime minister's crowning glories, the 1982 Falklands War against Argentina. French-owned U.K.-based production and distribution banner Pathe has joined forces with the BBC and independent producer Damian Jones ("Welcome to Sarajevo") to develop the project, which they said Monday will offer "a revealing and intimate portrait" of the woman dubbed "the iron lady."
