  • Margot Robbie movie Tonya Harding Biopic Casts Two More Actors to its List

The talked about biopic about Tonya Harding starring Margot Robbie signs on Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney

In addition to playing Harley Quinn in the upcoming DC project Gotham City Sirens, Margot is also set to play the U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding in the biopic I, Tonya based on the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships scandal involving the athlete.

Margot was confirmed to headline the project and two more cast members were confirmed recently. Sebastian Stan, known for his role as Bucky Barnes in Captain America has been cast alongside the multiple Emmy winning actress Allison Janney, according to THR.

The movie’s story will revolve around the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in which Harding's husband Jeff Gillooly and a bodyguard and her bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt hired a man named Shane Stant to attack Nancy Kerrigan so she couldn't compete in that year's Winter Olympics.

It later became public that Harding was involved in the planning of the assault, and it resulted in her being banned for life from competitive figure skating, among other punishments.

Gillooly took a plea bargain deal to testify against Harding and served some prison time, and the couple was divorced later that year. Stan is set to play her husband Gillooly and Janney is going to play LaVona Fay Golden, Harding’s mother. The next casting question will be, who gets to play Kerrigan?

Craig Gillespie is directing the film, which Miramax will distribute. Margot is also producing the movie with her LuckyChap Entertainment banner with Tom Ackerley. Bryan Unkeless and Steven Rogers, who also wrote the screenplay, will also produce.
