By now, everyone on the planet knows — or should know — #MargotRobbie's name. Over the last few years she's played Leonardo DiCaprio's blonde bombshell wife in The Wolf of Wall Street, gave us the dummy's guide to mortgage bonds from a bubble bath in The Big Short , starred opposite chest-thumping demigod Alexander Skarsgård as Jane in The Legend of Tarzan and, most recently, wreaked havoc as #HarleyQuinn in #SuicideSquad. In short, she's now a certified Hollywood star.
And that certified position will undoubtably be set in stone after her appearances in the following six films:
1. Playing The 'Dynamic Woman' In Terminal
Bagging a starring role in noir thriller, Terminal (not to be confused with the 2004 movie about Tom Hanks killing time in an airport), alongside Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead), Mike Myers (Austin Powers), Max Irons (Red Riding Hood) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Margot Robbie plays Annie, a woman clouded by enigma as two hit men try to fulfill a seemingly suicidal mission while working for a mysterious employer.
Color me intrigued!
- Release date: TBD
2. Breaking The Rules In Larrikins
Who wouldn't want to watch an animal rock 'n' roll animated musical directed by five-time Tony-winning English/Australian composer-comedian Tim Minchin and The LEGO Movie/Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs helmer Chris Miller? Err, no one, that's who.
The term Larrikins is Aussie slang for "maverick" or "rebel" and, as the plot revolves around a desert-dwelling marsupial named Bilby who's kicked out of his family pad and responds by becoming a full-time roadie, the title is pretty spot on. Add this to the excellent cast line-up, which is comprised of Margot Robbie (obviously), Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne and Ben Mendelsohn, and this movie equals one big fat yes from me!
Release date: February 15, 2018
3. Wreaking Havoc In An Untitled Harley Quinn Project
There are plenty of rumors circulating around what this Untitled Harley Quinn Project could focus on, and while Margot Robbie's character will undoubtably be the driving force in the picture, there's talk of other female antiheroes from the #DCEU, such as Catwoman and Poison Ivy, getting their claws in it too.
Whether the movie will draw inspiration from Harley Quinn's storylines in comic books Gotham Sirens or Birds of Prey, we'll probably have to wait until after Suicide Squad's release to find out; but one thing's for sure, we're super intrigued to see how this character develops!
Release date: TBD
4. Playing Pooh Sticks in Goodbye Christopher Robin
In the early '20s, a man named A.A. Milne created a character called Winnie the Pooh, one that gave joy to children around the globe. Now, almost a century later, this achievement is being transformed into a feature-length biopic. The movie will provide a behind-the-scenes look at A.A. Milne's life and the stories inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his soft toys.
Robbie stars as Milne's wife, Daphne Milne, while Domhnall Gleeson is taking a break from scaring the living sh*t out of kids in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and is playing the character creator A.A. Milne himself.
- Release date: 2017
5. Hopping To Action In Peter Rabbit
Another childhood classic joining the throng of live-action reimaginings is Beatrix Potter favorite, #PeterRabbit. Created way back in 1893, the story follows naughty bunny Peter as he disobeys his mother's orders and goes snooping in Mr. McGregor's garden to gnaw on tasty, forbidden, veg treasure.
As of yet, Robbie's role in the movie is unknown, but my bets are on her voicing one of Peter Rabbit's fluffy sisters — Flopsy, Mopsy or Cottontail.
Release date: TBD
6. Thrilling The Masses In Beautiful Things
Per Variety's report, Margot Robbie is currently involved in a Warner Bros. adaptation of Gin Phillips's novel Beautiful Things, a thriller — sold last month to Viking — that centers around a mother and her child, trapped in a zoo and a gunman on the run. Producer Denise Di Novi is also tied to the project. More information to follow.
