Helen Mirren is former Israeli prime minister Golda Meir in this first look for Guy Nattiv’s upcoming biopic “Golda”, as shared by The Hollywood Reporter, which has now started shooting in London. The film is written by Nicholas Martin and set during the Yom Kippur War of 1973, when Egypt, Syria and Jordan launched a surprise attack on Israel to reclaim territory lost during the Six-Day War in 1967. Described as a “ticking-clock thriller,” Golda charts the high-stakes responsibilities Meir faced and the controversial decision she took amid infighting from her hostile all-male cabinet. “Golda Meir was a formidable, intransigent and powerful leader,” said Mirren. “It is a great challenge to portray her at the most difficult moment of her extraordinary life. I only hope I do her justice!” “I have long been an admirer of the great Helen Mirren,” said Nattiv. “She has melted so brilliantly into Golda Meir’s character with incredible talent, intelligence, depth and emotion, doing justice to the richness and complexity of this incredible woman.” As previously announced, Bleecker Street and ShivHans acquired U.S. rights to the film, in a deal negotiated by ICM Independent and CAA Media Finance. “Golda” is produced by Michael Kuhn (Florence Foster Jenkins, The Duchess) for Qwerty Films and by Jane Hooks and Nicholas Martin. The film shoots for six weeks in London and on location in Israel.

I’m not sure how reliable this source is, but according to the Kemps Film TV Video website, filming begins in the UK today, 8 November, on “Golda”, the biopic of Israel’s only female prime minster, Golda Meir. The feature is described as a “ticking-clock thriller following the intensely dramatic events and controversial decisions Meir faced during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. “Golda” is directed by Guy Nattiv from a screenplay by Nicholas Martin (Florence Foster Jenkins). Jane Hooks and Michael Kuhn produce; shooting will run for six months. Mirren has recently completed filming her role of Hespera in Shazam! Fury of the Gods (part of the DC Extended Universe) and Grandmère in White Bird: A Wonder Story, an adaptation of RJ Palacio’s graphic novel, which filmed in the Czech Republic. It was announced only a couple of months ago that financing of the film has been secured, so that would mean a rather fast pre-production. Fingers crossed it’s indeed being filmed as we speak.

The latest installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise released on-demand and Blu-Ray this October, so everyone who missed it in the theaters and/or is curious to see Helen reprising her role as Magdalene “Queenie” Shaw, here’s your chance. It’s really not more than a cameo with one scene shared with Vin Diesel, but they seem to get along just well and I’m sure there’ll be a place for Magdalene” in the next films to follow. If you couldn’t care less, I don’t judge you :-). Enjoy the screencaptures.
