Whoever doubted Margot Robbie as an actor, prepared to have your jaw-floored with the new trailer for the upcoming Georgia-filmed movie, I-Tonya.
The movie centers around Tonya Harding’s journey from her early skating days to her training for the 1994 Winter Olympics before her ex-husband intervenes and tries to sabotage rival Nancy Kerrigan. The infamous event made headlines for months.
While Harding disputed her involvement, she was eventually convicted of hindering the investigation into the incident. She received three years probation, 500 hours of community service and a $160,000 fine and ultimately banned from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for life.
In the trailer, you can hear Margot Robbie play Tonya Harding with perfection. “America, they want someone to love. But they want someone to hate,” Robbie says in character. “And the haters always say, ‘Tonya, tell the truth!’ There’s no such thing as truth. I mean, it’s bulls—.”
According to Project Casting, I, Tonya filmed throughout Georgia in early January with reshoots taking place as late as May 2017. There were dozens of casting calls ranging from skaters to FBI Agents.
I, Tonya hits theaters on December 8th.
