Robbie also is set to produce the project under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

Margot Robbie's Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya has found its director.

Craig Gillespie will helm the feature that will center on the disgraced figure skater, who famously conspired to have Nancy Kerrigan, her main competitor in the 1994 Winter Olympics, injured prior to the Norway-based games.

Steven Rogers (Love the Coopers) will pen the feature and also serve as a producer, alongside Robbie, who will produce under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner. Clubhouse Pictures' Bryan Unkeless also will produce.

Gillespie is no stranger to the sports film genre, having directed the true-life sports pic Million Dollar Arm for Disney. Most recently, he helmed the Chris Pine-starrer The Finest Hours for the studio.

Gillespie is repped by UTA and Management 360.
