Margot Robbie to develop the reboot of Tank Girl?
Created by writer Martin and artist Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl tells the story of a girl who drives and lives in a tank
Comic Book character Tank Girl appears to be headed for a cinematic reboot, with Margot Robbie attached to the project
According to the original Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin, LuckyChap Entertainment's new Tank Girl movie has already been in development for some time. However, the company is yet to reach out to the original comic book creators.
"Just heard that Margot Robbie's company have optioned rights from MGM to make a new Tank Girl movie — now several months into development. We haven't been contacted by any of the parties involved with the project, so not sure if there will be any input from the original creators," Martin wrote on Twitter.
While LuckyChap's involvement guarantees her a producer credit, it is currently unclear if Robbie will take a more hands-on approach with the Tank Girl reboot, and perhaps even star in it. Notably, LuckyChap has already had a hand in four films that star Robbie in a leading capacity — I, Tonya; Terminal; Dreamland; and Birds of Prey.
Created by writer Martin and artist Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl debuted in 1988. Set in a post-apocalyptic Australia, the comic follows a girl who drives and lives in a tank. The series has become well known for its unorthodox visual and narrative style.
