Margot Robbie: “Tank Girl”

Although she is getting a reputation as a real life ‘tank girl’ due to an unfortunate string of poorly performing films, actress and producer Margot Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment continues to develop the futuristic live-action feature "Tank Girl", for director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte ("As You Are"), based on the Dark Horse 1988 Brit comic book series, created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, featuring Robbie (again) as a wise-cracking skank:

"...'Tank Girl', aka 'Fonzie Rebecca Buckler' drives a tank, which is also her home. 

"She undertakes a series of missions for a nebulous organization before making a serious mistake and being declared an outlaw for her sexual inclinations and her substance abuse. 

"On the run, she shares sexy, psychedelic and surrealist misadventures with her close friend, 'Booga', a mutant kangaroo..."

"Tank Girl" was released as a live-action feature in 1995, directed by Rachel Talalay, starring Lori Petty, Ice-T and Naomi Watts.

Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment is noted for the features, "I, Tonya", "Terminal", "Harley Quinn: Birds Of Prey" and the upcoming "Barbie".
