Pathe has teamed with BBC Films to develop a script about ex-prime minister Margaret Thatcher.

Brian Fillis will write the film will focus on the 17 days before the Falklands War in 1982. Variety adds Thatcher was deeply unpopular after her first couple of years as British prime minister, but her fortunes were transformed by the Argentine invasion of the Falklands, a British territory, and her bold decision to send a task force to the South Atlantic to recapture the islands.

A production for the film has not been et yet.
