Margot Robbie’s Tank Girl Reboot Gets Dreamland Director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte
Right after learning that Margot Robbie was working on a Reboot Tank Girl new details have been updated on the project. It was revealed that Miles Joris-Peyrafitte had been called to direct the new version of the British cult comic book. At the beginning of its development, it is planned to play Robbie in the new film, which will be the second time that the character will be presented on the big screen.
According to a new report, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte marked the role of director for Tank Girl after working with Margot Robbie on Dreamland . This project apparently worked out so well that Robbie could put it in the driver's seat in this company. Joris-Peyrafitte also directed As You Are in 2016. Robbie is expected to produce via his production company LuckyChap, alongside his production partners Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara. It is pointed out that the project is in the early stages of development, which means that a lot of things could change until the cameras start to turn.
One of the key factors is that a script has not been rendered yet for the Tank Girl restarts. It is unclear at the moment who, if any, has been hired to adapt the comic to the big screen. This will however be the key, as it is said Margot Robbie will not fully commit to playing in the film until she has not seen the scenario. That said, the plan is to develop this as a star vehicle for Robbie and, without a doubt, having a big star like her in mind would help sell that as a possible franchise to a major studio. Not only is Robbie able to direct a blockbuster like Suicide Squad or the future spin-off of Harley Quinn Brids of Prey but she can also play a worthy role. an Oscar such as I, Tonya .
Tank Girl was originally created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett in 1988. In a general way, it follows a tank driver in a post-apocalyptic desert. who takes odd jobs and is often in trouble. The comic book became popular enough to be tackled by Hollywood as a film in 1995. Directed by Rachel Talalay, the adaptation was nothing shy. At the time, it had been torn apart by critics and was a commercial disappointment: it was only $ 6 million and operated on a $ 25 million budget. In the years that followed its release, the group continued to find a cult.
The Hollywood landscape has changed a lot since then. Comic strip movies are a rare commodity and with Marvel locked up at Disney, Spider-Man at Sony and DC secure at Warner Bros., it's hard to find comic book franchises. As such, something like Tank Girl could prove useful if it is executed properly. We will keep you informed as additional details on the project become available. This news reaches us via Collider.
