A movie about the ill-fated Olympian figure skater Tonya Harding is set to start filming in Macon later this month, and a casting call invites adults to audition to be extras.
“I, Tonya,” is a biopic about Harding, who was up against Nancy Kerrigan in the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. While practicing, Kerrigan was attacked by a man who would later be identified as Harding’s ex-husband and bodyguard, according to The New York Times.
Harding, to be played by Margot Robbie, pleaded guilty to conspiring to hinder prosecution and was banned from U.S. Figure Skating and stripped of her 1994 U.S. Championship, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
