Miramax Acquires Rights to Margot Robbie-Starring Tonya Harding Biopic, 'I, Tonya'

by

Miramax has won the U.S. distribution rights to I, Tonya, an upcoming drama with Margot Robbie playing disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding.

Craig Gillespie is directing the picture, with Steven Rogers penning the script. The successful figure skater had a showdown against a fellow American skater before Nancy Kerrigan was attacked by thugs at the behest of Harding's own husband. He then implicated his own wife in an attempt to stay out of jail.

“The script is unbelievable, it’s unlike anything I’ve read before and I know Craig’s approach with the material and the characters will be executed brilliantly. Tom and I at LuckyChap are so grateful to partner with Bryan for what will hopefully be the first of many jobs together," Robbie said.
