Following on from this past weekend’s news that Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment production company is working on a new Tank Girl movie, now comes an update on who may be directing the picture.
Courtesy of Collider, Dreamland’s Miles Joris-Peyrafitte is lined up to direct this new Tank Girl.
Previously, it was believed that Robbie herself is only serving as a producing on the picture. She could still end up headlining the movie once a script has been finalised, although that is a lot of ifs and buts.
The outlet also reports that the film could see Tank Girl teaming with Jet Girl and a group of fellow rebels as they come together to battle a corrupt government that’s taken control of the already-scarce water supply.
As a character, Tank Girl began life back in 1988 in the comic book from Martin and Jamie Hewlett. Centred on Rebecca Buck, readers saw the titular character driving around in the tank that also happens to be her home. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, mind, for Tank Girl’s future-set landscape is full of bad guys and booze.
1995 famously saw Lori Petty head to the big screen in Tank Girl, although that movie absolutely bombed upon its release. In more recent years, the picture has become somewhat of a cult classic that was bogged down by a hugely troubled shoot and production.
Now, it appears that Rebecca Buck will again be making her way to the silver screen.
Expect more on this as we get it.
