Tank Girl has secured its director in Dreamland's Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.
The Tank Girl reboot will be produced by Margot Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment production company. The movie is reportedly still in its early development stage, with Robbie, alongside fellow producers Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, still waiting on a script.
Joris-Peyrafitte's directorial debut was the 2016 indie movie As You Are, which starred Amandla Stenberg and Charlie Heaton. He went on to direct Dreamland, a movie starring and produced by Robbie.
Shortly after news of the reboot broke, Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin wrote about the movie on Twitter, saying "Just heard that Margot Robbie's company have optioned rights from MGM to make a new Tank Girl movie - now several months into development. We haven't been contacted by any of the parties involved with the project, so not sure if there will be any input from the original creators."
Sources speculate that the film will follow Tank Girl as she teams up with another outlaw, Jet Girl. Together, alongside a group of rebels, they inspire an uprising against a tyrannical government that has control over their water supply.
The Tank Girl comic book was previously turned into a movie in 1995. That adaptation starred Lori Petty as the titular character and was directed by Rachel Talalay.
