DC’s Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie teams up with rival comic company Marvel’s Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan for ‘I, Tonya’ biopic.

While audiences learned about Margot Robbie’s involvement in the Tonya Harding biopic project back in Spring of 2016, newly leaked set photos show Robbie in costume and the production well underway. That’s right, the new photos show a seemingly stockier Robbie donning a signature ’90s look as the disgraced Olympic figure skater sporting a heathered blue sweater and high-waisted jeans.

“I, Tonya” is set to center around Tonya Harding’s highly-publicized involvement in the 1994 attack on rival US figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. The biopic will explore the absurdly movie-like and unfortunate tale behind one of Olympic Games figure skating’ most notorious scandals. Joining Margot Robbie is a talented supporting cast, including an unlikely team up with Sebastian Stan, “Bucky” Barnes aka “Winter Soldier” from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Sebastian stan plays Harding’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly who with the aide of her bodyguard, hires a “hit-man” to break the leg of US Gold Medal hopeful Nancy Kerrigan. In a story far too ludicrous to be fiction, the hit-man attacks the unsuspecting figure skater while on live television during the ’94 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, making the attack a brutish and bizarre moment to be seen around the world. The biopic is set to focus on the moments leading up to and immediately after the attack.

Check out the leaked set photos of Margot Robbie doing a spot-on Tonya Harding below:

“I, Tonya” is set to release sometime in 2018.

About The Author

Pooya

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
