The first teaser has arrived for I, Tonya, the dark comedy-sports-biopic of American figure skating star Tonya Harding.
We get to see Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street) as the champion skater, poofy fringe and all, and a glimpse of the snarky laughs and violence in store from the film – which Robbie also produced.
Directed by Craig Gillespie, I, Tonya is based on the life of Tonya Harding, a two-time Olympian and two-time Skate America Champion, famous for being one of the first few women to complete a triple axel jump during a competition. She also won the U.S Figure Skating Championships and came second in the World Championships, but was later banned for reasons sure to be revealed in the film.
The film will also star Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War) and Alison Janney, and was written by Steven Rogers.
I, Tonya‘s release date is yet to be confirmed.
Here’s the cheeky teaser…
