"I, Tonya" follows the true story of infamous former figure skater Tonya Harding. During 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, Harding and her husband Jeff Gillooly hired a man to break the leg of Nancy Kerrigan, Harding's biggest competitor. Harding was subsequently banned to join any competition ever since.
Last October, Robbie, who is also one of the movie's producers, talked about her excitement about working on the movie. "I'm really excited because I'm producing the film as well, for the first time I have all of these other concerns that I normally don't think about when I'm just acting," she told Glamour. "Whereas now I'm so worried about getting injuries and ruining pushing shoot dates back, that'll cost hundreds of thousands of dollars-it's terrifying. So I'm really excited because I love acquiring a new skill for a role, it's one of the biggest treats of acting, and on the producing side of it-if I get an injury I'm scared I'm going to ruin everything so I'm nervous."
