Yesterday, one of the big pieces of news to hit for the week came in a most unexpected form. Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin took to Twitter to reveal that Birds of Prey’s Margot Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, had gained the rights to the British comic book Tank Girl, a cult-favorite series that also spawned a mid-1990s film.
However, it wasn’t clear whether or not Robbie herself would be starring in the movie. Yes, generally speaking, production companies created by actors tend to revolve around creating projects for the actor, but that isn’t always the case, and it would be jumping the gun to assume she’d be taking on the lead role.
That being said, a new report from Collider indicates that yes, LuckyChap is developing the project as a starring vehicle for her. That being said, there are no producers attached yet, and Robbie won’t attach herself to it until she reads the script.
the outlet also states that Dreamland and As You Are helmer Miles Joris-Peyrafitte will be directing the film, it’s that former film where Joris-Peyrafitte and Robbie worked together. However, his next project will be The Hunter & the Fox for Annapurna, in which he will be serving as writer and director.
Does this unconventional choice for Tank Girl sound like the right move? Have a look at the trailer for As You Are and let us know down below!
