Casey Affleck on boat in The Finest Hours

Tonya Harding Biopic with Margot Robbie in the Lead Gains 'The Finest Hours' Director

by

Filmmaker Craig Gillespie, who last helmed The Finest Hours, is set to direct the Tonya Harding biopic, detailing Harding's attack on a fellow figure skater and the subsequent trial on the incident. Margot Robbie is set to headline.

While Gillespie's work is regarded as rather run-of-the-mill, the project is a very different one for the man who directed films such as Jon Hamm's Million Dollar Arm and the Fright Night remake.

At this stage, the film is titled I, Tonya, though not much is known about the film beyond that. Robbie is in the lead role, and the accompanying character has yet to be cast.
