Margot Robbie Developing A Tank Girl Movie
Ladies, lock up your sons because a report from the official Tank Girl Facebook page says that Margot Robbie is gearing up to bring TANK GIRL back to the big screen!
According to today’s post, Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment production company is now actively developing new ideas to welcome the beloved comic book character back into theaters after her team had purchased the rights to the character. The best part? Word of the acquisition comes directly from Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin, and you just don’t get anymore official than that!
So far, LuckyChap has stated that Robbie will serve as a producer on the project, but will not confirm if the Queenpin of Crime herself will star in the title role. Personally, I can’t imagine a scenario where she would pass on playing the character, though it’s best to wait until we hear the official word to get too excited.
Created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl first arrived as part of the debut issue of Deadline (1998), a UK-based magazine meant to serve as a printed forum for up-and-coming comic-related talent. Known to her friends and enemies as Tank Girl, the character’s real name is Rebecca Buck. As Tank Girl, Rebecca pilots a tank that also serves as her home. After completing several missions for a mysterious organization, Tank Girl was labeled as an outlaw for her dabbling in outrageous sexual acts and torrid history of substance abuse.
