Tonya Harding Biopic

Neon has debuted a teaser trailer for Craig Gillespie’s Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie in the titular role.

The indie dark comedy tells a fictionalized version of the true story of an accomplished skater who — alongside her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan) — was accused of plotting an attack against her competitor Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver).

I, Tonya hits theaters on Dec. 8. Check out the first teaser trailer below for the film also starring Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Bojana Novakovic, Allison Janney, and Bobby Cannavale.

Tonya Harding Biopic

Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.
