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.

Martin and Hewlett created the character who first saw publication in 1988 in the debut issue of Deadline. She has seen series published by Dark Horse Comics and currently by Titan Comics.

The character came to screen in March 1995 in a film directed by Rachel Talalay and starring Lori Petty, Naomi Watts, Ice-T, and Malcolm McDowell. Petty played the title character. With a budget of $25 million, the film went on to earn $4.1 million domestically and about another $2 million internationally. The film was generally panned by critics.
