Margot Robbie is setting down roots at Warner Bros.

The Aussie actress is signing a first-look deal with the studio behind her summer Suicide Squad to develop and produce feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

Robbie, whose breakout performance came in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, is only 26 years old but has quickly grasped control of her career in a way few actors, especially female actors, do, steadily wading into the world of producing.

She is in post on her first movie as a producer, the upcoming neo noir thriller Terminal. Robbie is also developing and producing a Tonya Harding biopic, I, Tonya, where she will play the disgraced figure skater, and developing an adaptation of Bad Monkeys, a novel by Matt Ruff with Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuberand Dylan Clark for Universal Pictures.

Warners has built a relationship with the actress, who has starred in Focus and The Legend of Tarzan for the studio before becoming one of the key factors why Suicide Squad grossed over $700 million worldwide.

The actress already has two projects set at Warners — a Suicide Squad spinoff for her character Harley Quinn (as well as other DC heroines) that she will executive produce, and an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s Queen of the Air, to which she is attached to star.

The first-look deal underlines Warners’ renewed focus on female-driven storytelling and comes after some notables moves from the Burbank-based studio.

It created the Warner Bros. Emerging Film Directors Workshop earlier this year as a program to increase female voices, among other under-represented sectors, and was spearheaded by the studio’s president, creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman.
