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.

Hello Margot fans! Margot is currently in London before heading to New York for Saturday Night Live and she’s out and telling all her beauty secrets. Vogue got to catch up with our favorite Aussie about skincare, travel, fragrance and her favorite places to go in London and you can read all about it bellow. Enjoy!
I always start by cleansing in the shower – I don’t do too many steps because I genuinely don’t have that much time, but I’m anal-retentive about having really clean skin. Especially with my job, where they just layer make-up on and on and on. One brand I’m obsessed with right now is this brand Skin111, which my make-up artist Patti Dubroff got me hooked on. They have these sheet masks, they’re made out of a jelly sort of stuff and the serum they’re soaked in is so good. So when we’re getting ready for an event she’ll put one of those on while she’s doing my hair. At the moment at night I’m using a Dr. Lancer cleanser and a La Prairie moisturiser. No matter how drunk I am I absolutely will not go to bed with my make-up on, I will not.
For everyday I use either Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser or Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation mixed in with some moisturiser, or if I go to events I use Suqqu Foundation. That shit doesn’t come off. It looks like skin, but it doesn’t budge. I haven’t found another foundation that stays on like that without looking heavy. Patti also taught me that on your bottom lashes you should use eyelash tint rather than mascara so I’ll do that if I’m out for dinner with friends or whatever. And I’ll always brush my brows, sometimes I use pencil too. Then it’s just mascara and a bit of cream blush. For a little lip colour I’ll just use the tinted lip balms by Burt’s Bees.
Amazing news to all Margot fans! It has been announced that our girl will host Saturday Night Live season premiere, on October 1st! Margot doesn’t really know when to stop, eh? Variety was one of the many sources to release a statement, and you can read it bellow. We don’t know about you guys but we are really looking forwards to seeing Margot on the show!
Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad”) will host the 42nd season premiere of “Saturday Night Life” alongside musical guest the Weeknd, NBC announced on Thursday.
The Australian actress was most recently seen as Harley Quinn in the summer blockbuster “Suicide Squad,” also starring Will Smith and Jared Leto. Robbie has also been in films such as “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Her upcoming projects include starring in the film adaption of Matt Ruff’s novel “Bad Monkeys,” as well as lending her voice for the Dreamworks animated film “Larrikins,” scheduled for a 2018 release.
Two-time Grammy Award winner and Oscar nominee the Weeknd will return as musical guest after first appearing on the show in March 2016. His upcoming album, “Starboy,” is scheduled to be released Nov. 25.
Earlier this month, NBC announced that three new cast members — Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villaseñor — were slated to join the variety series’ upcoming season. Day, Moffat, and Villaseñor will take the places of former cast members Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky.
The 42nd season premiere of “SNL” will air Saturday, Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. “SNL” is produced in association with Broadway Video, and created and executive produced by Lorne Michaels.
Following up her encounter with Elle magazine, Margot sat down with The Cut to talk not only about Calvin Klein’s fragrance Deep Euphoria but also about her love for Harry Potter and character scents.
While Vanity Fair may find Margot Robbie “too fresh to be pegged,” she’s pretty willing to do it herself — at least when it comes to Harry Potter. “I manipulated the answers,” she said, when I ask the admitted Potter nerd (on Jimmy Kimmel, she showed a photo of herself at 13 with glasses, braces, and holding a cup of tea and a Harry Potter book), whether she’s ever taken a Sorting Hat quiz. During a press day from London as the new face of deep Euphoria Calvin Klein, I forgot to ask Robbie what her patronus would be, but I did find out where she thinks the Sorting Hat would place her, the weird smell Jared Leto thought the Joker would have, and her thoughts on not putting down other women.
Did you play a specific character in the deep Euphoria shoot?
That was the tricky part. With any kind of photo shoot or campaign, they want to see you be yourself, but what I do at work is to play someone else. Photo shoots are terrifying. Photographers are like, “Just show me you!” and I’m like, “Oh, me? I wouldn’t be doing this. I wouldn’t be sprawled out on a couch like this. I would be in a tracksuit.”
But Francis Lawrence, a film director, did the campaign, so it was so much easier for me to sit down with him and say, “Okay, so here’s the concept. This is where you are. This is what you’re thinking.” We’re blurring the lines between fantasy and reality so you can associate things with your own experiences and you can kind of fabricate the world you’re in at the same time.
What was your first scent memory?
I remember being a kid and seeing my mom’s perfumes lined up on the bathroom bench. I was definitely aware that only older women — grown-up women — wore perfume. I was so thrilled at the idea that I was going to be grown up and be able to wear perfume, too. Whenever I smell my mum, I feel like a little kid again.
Warner Bros. loves Margot Robbie. That is a fact as it has just been announced that Margot has signed a first-look deal with the studios to develop and produce feature movies through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner! For those of you who might be confused, LuckyChap Entertainment is a production company owned by Margot, Tom Ackerley, Josey Mcnamara and Sophia Kerr. You can check out our page dedicated to the production company for more information. The Hollywood Reporter was the one to break the news, and you can read their article bellow!
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.
During the promotional tour for ‘Suicide Squad’, Margot has been repeatedly asked about her work out and diet programs. It seems people are very interested in finding out how she got in the shape needed to portray Harley Quinn… Food4BetterHealth has today posted an article about just this, and I decided to post it here since it seems to be of big interest for very many! You can read it below.
Getting in shape to play Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn required a lot of dedication on Margot Robbie’s part because she had to both look good in the bikini bottoms she pranced around in and in the stunts she had to perform.
The 26-year-old actress knew the role would require her to have a strong physique and that she would have to work out hard to get the right body. Margot Robbie’s workout routine consisted of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) as well as weight training.
She spent three weeks training hard for about three weeks a day while the movie was first being shot. Trainer Andie Hecker helped Robbie get into form through Pilates, ballet, and bulking cardio.
First up on the workout schedule was getting rid of traditional cardio machines and going for high-intensity interval training cardio circuits for an hour each time.
With a deep background in ballet, Hecker incorporated rebounders and balance balls into the Robbie’s workouts. The goal of the fast-paced workout is to constantly change things up, which taxes the body.
Some of the exercise Robbie did with Hecker in her cardio routine included: Trampoline and rebounder jumps, Leg rotations, Mountain climbers, Bosu ball hops, Double leg lifts, Outer thigh lifts. She would rest for a minute after each set and then repeat the set three to four times. The challenge to the body comes from going from one exercise to the next without stopping until the set is complete.
Along with these circuits, Robbie also does something called Ballet Bodies. The technique was developed by her trainer, who used to be a ballerina. Whenever Robbie is in Los Angeles, she makes sure to see Hecker for workouts. Robbie also loves to take dance classes when she can, and says they don’t feel like a workout at all.
Margot Robbie’s Diet
Robbie flat out says she hates to diet and she doesn’t really follow any particular diet regimen. She relies on exercise to keep her lean and in shape instead of limiting her food choices and depriving herself of the things she loves to eat.
However, like many stars, she does actively cut back on certain foods while filming a movie, but she has said that she gets miserable if she doesn’t eat. Eating a salad every day doesn’t work for her; neither does having just a half glass of red wine every other day.
One thing she won’t give up is the 10 cups of tea a day she has. Her favorite breakfast is avocado on toast with bacon. Clearly she eats what she wants and looks to burning off calories through hard physical workouts done regularly.
Suicide Squad has been in theaters since early August and is doing really well at the box office.
Movie Pilot – The Suicide Squad train came and went, and while for many people the film didn’t live up to the hype, it has still made a significant amount of money for Warner Bros. with $640.1 million dollars before crawling to the finish line. So, it was no surprise when David Ayer let it slip that Suicide Squad 2 was in the planning stages.
Not only is a sequel very much in play, but Ayer has also shown interest in having the film be R-Rated. An R-rated Suicide Squad was something that people were expecting for the first film’s outing, but David Ayer explained how that wasn’t going to be possible: “For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here. We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice… There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.”
The Wrap reported that David Ayers next directing venture Bright would star Deadshot himself, Will Smith, and that it is purposely being fitting into each of their schedules in order to make sure they are free to film the Suicide Squad sequel.
Where does this leave arguably the most influential character from the movies, Harley Quinn though? Margot Robbie has of course yet to be confirmed for the sequel, but is it really much of a question that she will return?
The Suicide Squad marketing team went out of their way to make sure that fans got as much Harley as possible. She was featured heavily in ads leading up to the release of the film and since the film hit theaters, her merchandise has only doubled.
This marketing was not all the filmmakers did to push the envelope of just how important Harley Quinn is to Suicide Squad. Her character was featured more then any other character in the film aside from Deadshot, and she was the focal point for most of the film. It would be madness if Warner Bros. actually were to leave her out of a potential sequel.
While we have no idea what will happen in the DCEU between now and then, or where Harley Quinn will be by the time Suicide Squad 2 comes out, I’m sure the writers will find a way to conveniently fit her into the movie and return to wreak havoc — in a good way — for Amanda Waller.

The Aussie lights up the screen in ‘Suicide Squad’ as Harley Quinn, and has fast emerged as one of the most magnetic presences in the game.
This is not that cringeworthy Vanity Fair Margot Robbie profile. It will not try to decipher what specific sort of “beautiful” the 26-year-old actress is, nor will it attempt to relate her appeal to the differences between her native Australia and America (either in its current or 50-years-ago iteration). It will not be flirty or gossipy or go overboard in describing her physical attributes, which can be gleaned from spending three seconds looking at any of the internet’s millions of photographs of her. It will not make you think that, first and foremost, I am writing about her while drool accumulates in the corner of my mouth.
No, this is a Margot Robbie feature that has come to sing her praises as an actress—or, more accurate still, as a bona fide Movie Star: a status which will be solidified this Friday, when her latest, Suicide Squad, arrives in theaters. As anyone who’s been subjected to that project’s endless promotional assault knows by now, David Ayers’s film is a DC Comics venture in which a ruthless government bigwig (Viola Davis) assembles “the worst of the worst” to pull off a do-or-die mission. This gang of baddies includes Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, Jay Hernandez’s El Diablo, and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, all of whom eventually cross paths with Jared Leto as Batman’s archnemesis, The Joker. Nonetheless, they’re all peripheral to Robbie, who dons clown makeup and short shorts, puts her white-with-purple-ends hair into ponytails, and wields a baseball bat as the Joker’s psychiatrist turned girlfriend Harley Quinn – and promptly steals the spotlight as the star of the show, if not the summer.
Harley Quinn is a psychotic femme fatale who talks in a baby-doll New Yawk accent, and her look—high heels, fishnet stockings, a ratty T-shirt that screams “Daddy’s Lil’ Monster,” and a shiny red jacket—will undoubtedly be ubiquitous this Halloween, as it’s tailor-made for the type of racy women’s costume that gives night terrors to fathers with teen daughters. The character’s buoyant lunatic eroticism is key to her allure, and there’s no more compelling image in Suicide Squad than that of Robbie’s bad girl strutting through urban ruin, a Louisville Slugger across her shoulders, a bubblegum bubble popping between her red lipstick-smeared lips, and a deviant smile spread across her pale face. “We’re bad guys, that’s what we do,” she tells her righteous military handler Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) after he complains about her casually robbing a store, and in just about every one of her scenes, Robbie brings a jolt of exuberant aberrant mischievousness to the proceedings, cackling and cracking skulls with gleeful abandon.Read More
