Tonya Harding Biopic Hits Atlanta
I, Tonya, a feature film biopic about the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan ice skating drama before and during the 1994 Winter Olympics, will begin production in Atlanta in January. Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn) will star as Harding, with Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes from the Captain America movies) as her husband Jeff Gillooly, who hired a hitman to break Kerrigan’s leg. Allison Janney (CBS’s Mom) will play Tonya’s abusive mother, LaVona Golden, while Caitlin Carver (Dear White People) has Kerrigan’s role. Craig Gillespie (last in Atlanta shooting Million Dollar Arm) directs.
