Margot Robbie has signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. allowing them to develop and produce feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment production company.
The actress already has two projects that she is working on with them — a Suicide Squad spin-off to expand upon her character Harley Quinn, as well as an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s Queen of the Air, which Margot will also star in.
The first-look deal is just one part of Warner Bros.’ new focus on female-driven storytelling, along with the female-led superhero movie Wonder Woman and with the film Ocean’s Eight. The latter will be a female-centric take on Ocean’s Eleven, and will star a cast of A-list female actors such as Rihanna, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway.
LuckyChap – run by Margot, Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr — already has numerous projects being produced, including the upcoming thriller Terminal, a Tonya Harding biopic titled I, Tonya, and an adaptation of Bad Monkeys. ~Natalia Makarski
