Pathe International, at Filmart with the UK Film Council stand, is handling worldwide sales on a new biopic of Margaret Thatcher.

Pathe Productions, the BBC and DJ Films are working with Brian Fillis to develop a screenplay about Thatcher as she tries to save her career in the 17 days preceeding the 1982 Falklands War.

Fillis developed the concept with Damian Jones, who will also produce. Jones's credits include The History Boys, Kidulthood and Welcome To Sarajevo.

Pathe Distribution has UK rights.
