It looks like Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey aren’t the only superheroes that are on the mind of Margot Robbie. The star of Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is supposedly working on a Tank Girl reboot film, which makes sense since we haven’t had any new movies with the character since the poorly-received one from 1995. 

The news comes from Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin, who shared the information on Twitter. Apparently, the film has been in development for months and will be released under MGM studios. Martin said he hasn’t been contacted for the film, so it looks like input from the comic’s creators won’t be a thing, at least not yet.

Hopefully, Robbie knows what makes the comic book work because not having the creator’s involvement is a big no-no for some. Granted, the blessing from the writer and artist doesn’t always guarantee success, look at this year’s Hellboy reboot for example, but you never know what could happen. 

Currently, Tank Girl is under Titan Comics and gets the occasional mini-series. It’s a celebrated comic book with good artwork and is much better than the 1995 film that came out. While the movie isn’t the worst thing ever, it was a prime example of filmmakers not caring for the property they were adapting.

Margot Rabbie working (and possibly starring) on a Tank Girl reboot would get a lot of people talking. Let’s see what happens.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will be coming out on February 7, 2020.
