The screenplay focuses on the challenges that the 1973 war presented to Israel’s “Iron Lady.”
Oscar-winning British actress Helen Mirren will play the role of iconic Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir in an upcoming biographical film Golda.
The movie will be directed by Oscar-winning Israeli director Guy Nattiv. Production is to begin in October.
“As someone who was born during the Yom Kippur War, I am honored to tell this fascinating story about the first and only woman to ever lead Israel,” Nattiv said.
Golda Meir died of lymphoma in 1978, four years after resigning from office.
