The Margot Corner
- margoterobbie.net -

Hello Margot fans! Our girl is currently in Cannes for the film festival, looking for financiers of “Dreamland” with her production company. We haven’t got any official photos yet (and we’re not sure there will be any, but we’ll of course keep you posted), so there’s not much to update with, but read on for a fun little article from News.com.au!

HOLLYWOOD has always had its “It” girls. Stars like Audrey Hepburn, Barbra Streisand, Goldie Hawn, Cher, Julia Roberts and Halle Berry have all earned the coveted title for their looks and talent on-screen over the years. And the next up-and-coming “It” girl these days seems to be Margot Robbie.

With starring roles in two films in the last year — as bad girl Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, which earned more than $US 700 million worldwide, as well as Jane Clayton in “The Legend of Tarzan,” the 26-year-old Australian actress may soon find her name added to the list of Hollywood’s most sought-after leading ladies.

“Robbie has all it takes to go to the top,” said film critic and entertainment reporter Stephen Schaefer, who writes for the Boston Herald.
But Schaefer isn’t convinced Robbie has reached the same status as Hollywood’s current It-girl quite yet.

“…What Emma Stone possesses is this innate, all-American girl quality where she seems like a regular person who might be your friend. Stone’s a movie star, but a down-to-earth one and that is something that can’t be bottled or packaged.”

That said, Robbie made a dazzling film debut with her role as Naomi Lapaglia, the sexy, feisty wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort character in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, adding her to the list of memorable performances by women in director Martin Scorsese’s films, such as Sharon Stone in Casino or Cathy Moriarty in Raging Bull.

“She can do just about anything, big budget, indie, and she leaves it all on the screen,” said Candace Havens, an entertainment reporter for KSCS 96.3. “She’s fearless and at the same time seems to be fairly strategic in the roles she’s taking on.”

Among the roles she’s adding to her filmography are Queen Elizabeth opposite Saoirse Ronan’s Mary Stuart in the upcoming drama Mary Queen of Scots. The drama tells the story of Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England. Robbie will also be reprising her role as Harley Quinn in a film that will showcase the top female villains from the DC stable, titled Gotham City Sirens. In addition, she’s currently filming the biopic, I, Tonya, in which she plays controversial Olympic skater Tonya Harding.

“I think Hollywood likes to see actresses who take on diverse roles,” added Havens. “They can star in a big blockbuster, but also knock it out of the park in indie pics. But there’s also the element of how they appear in the public eye. [With] their social media and interviews, it is all about perception.”

Margot fans, i think we’re right when we say– Margot Robbie is taking over the world! It has just been announced by The Hollywood Reporter that Margot is set to star and produce along with her partners at Lucky Chap Entertainment the thriller Dreamland! You can read all about it bellow.

Margot Robbie is set to star in Dreamland, a thriller that will be directed by Sundance winner Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.

Robbie will also produce with her partners at Lucky Chap Entertainment, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara, as well as Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Rian Cahill of Automatik.

Brad Feinstein of Romulus Entertainment is producing and financing Dreamland, which Sierra/Affinity will introduce at this year’s Cannes Film Market. CAA and WME are co-repping domestic sales.

Written by Nicolaas Zwart and on the 2015 Black List, Dreamland is set in the 1930s, amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl. The story follows a 15-year old boy on his quest to capture a fugitive bank robber and collect the bounty on her head, all with the goal with saving his family farm from foreclosure.

Against all odds, he beats out the FBI and the local police to find her, only to discover that she’s far more than what the authorities claim her to be. Robbie will play the bank robber.

The producers are hoping to bring a balance of nostalgic beauty and gritty realism to the proceedings as well as a balance between a sense of romanticism and a sense of violence.

Margot might be enjoying some deserved time off but that doesn’t mean the world wants you to forget about her. Variety broke the news yesterday that our favorite Aussie would be playing Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots, and we’re very excited for this role (plus, she will be working with Saoirse Ronan)!

Margot Robbie is in negotiations to play Queen Elizabeth in Focus Features and Working Title’s “Mary Queen of Scots,” opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Josie Rourke is directing the film. Working Title’s Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Deborah Hayward are producing.

“House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon is writing an original script based on a book by John Guy titled “The True Life of Mary Stuart.” “Mary” has yet to be greenlit, but sources say things are headed in the right direction. If greenlit, the film would likely go sometime later this year. Ronan will play the title role of Mary.

Following the success of big hits like “Suicide Squad” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” this latest role gives the Australian-born Robbie a prestige part to add to her portfolio. It could also have awards season potential given Focus’ track record of pushing Oscar campaigns for its releases.

Robbie, 26, is currently starring in Fox Searchlight’s “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” where she plays the wife of “Winnie the Pooh” author A.A. Milne. She recently wrapped production on “I, Tonya” starring as the title character Tonya Harding in a film she also produced under her Lucky Chap Entertainment banner.

Hello Margot fans! Long time no see, we know. There has been no news recently on Margot as she’s been on vacations since wrapping I, Tonya, however recently Vanity Fair decided on sharing a video where our girl reads inspirational quotes and you can watch it bellow!

Exciting news, Margot fans! About a week ago, it was reveled that a string of A-List actresses were considered for the role of Marian in an alternate Robin Hood universe tale. Actresses mentioned were Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Lawrence, Brie Larson, Daisy Ridley and more. Now it looks like Margot might just have snagged the role! Read on below for more information. We will update you once any new information on this project is available…

DEADLINE | It garnered a lot of interest, but when the dust cleared it was Sony that nailed the project for producers Donald De Line and Amy Pascal by pre-empting the spec Marian for actress Margot Robbie to star. A nice role for Robbie to show some more of her acting chops, this time in a serious and truly gritty turn. Think Braveheart meets Game of Thrones. Robbie’s label LuckyChap Entertainment is also producing, with Rock Shank, through his Romark Entertainment.

Scripted by newcomer Pete Barry, Marian is based on the character from the Robin Hood folklore. Here’s the storyline: After a conspiracy to conquer England in which the love of her life Robin Hood dies before her eyes, Marian picks up the cause to lead her people into a pivotal war. She comes to power, charging into a battle that will not only decide the fate of the kingdom but will see her don the mantle of the man she loved. In the process, she rises as a legend herself.

Robbie is currently at work on I, Tonya, the biopic about disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding that started shooting last month. Also on her plate is a further exploration of her Suicide Squad character in a project called Gotham City Sirens for Warner Bros. and director David Ayer — an all-female DC villains movie. In addition, she’s on two projects based on beloved characters from childhood books: Peter Rabbit at Sony/Columbia, a live-action/CGI hybrid feature based on Beatrix Potter’s classic characters, and Fox Searchlight’s untitled A.A. Milne project centered on Winnie the Pooh.

De Line and Steven Spielberg just produced the director’s Ready Player One for Warner Bros.; that comes out in March 2018. He also produced Zach Braff’s Going in Style from Oscar-nominated screenwriter Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures), which comes out next month. Pascal is working on a slew of projects, including Molly’s Game and the tentpole Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as a feature based on Mattel’s Barbie toy line.

Paradigm — which is going on what, eight spec sales in a row?– also sold this latest spec on behalf of Barry. The writer also is repped by manager Andrea Dimitty of Pannon Entertainment and attorney Jeff Frankel. Robbie and LuckyChap are repped by Management 360, CAA and attorney Jeff Bernstein; the actress additionally is repped by Aran Michael Management.

Actor Margot Robbie has been revealed as Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) ambassador by racing the carmaker’s radical all-electric BladeGlider sports car around the world-famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit, at midnight.

Margot Robbie put the radical three-seater through its paces around the closed Monaco street circuit before racing another BladeGlider. The pair of 272PS performance cars raced through the iconic Tunnel and diced with each other along Massenet before finishing in the glamour of Casino Square.

In the film, the Suicide Squad and The Wolf of Wall Street star is also seen demonstrating the drifting prowess of Nissan BladeGlider around one of the most famous corners in the world of motorsport – the iconic Fairmont Hairpin.

“It’s a really exciting time for electric vehicles,” said Robbie. “More people are choosing to go electric, leading the way to a more sustainable future and the Nissan BladeGlider hints at the future of smarter performance cars.”
