Meryl Streep to Play Former British PM Margaret Thatcher in New Film

Nelson Barnard/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Meryl Streep will play Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in a new biopic, complete with the Iron Lady's trademark hairdo. The film is described as the story of "a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman."

The Iron Lady will be released Jan. 6, 2011.
