Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts join Margot Robbie in animated film Larrikins.

Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne, and Ben Mendelsohn are headed to the outback.

EW can confirm that the four actors will lend their voices to Larrikins, DreamWorks Animation’s musical film about a sheltered Australian marsupial who embarks on a rock & roll road trip with some newfound animal pals.

The quartet join Margot Robbie and Jacki Weaver in the all-Aussie cast, which also includes Josh Lawson, Damon Herriman, and Ewen Leslie.

Tim Minchin, the multihyphenate comedian, actor, and musician behind Matilda the Musical, is directing Larrikins alongside Chris Miller (Shrek the Third, Puss in Boots).

Larrikins, which takes its title from an Australian slang word for mischievous youth or maverick, is expected to be distributed by Universal Pictures, whose parent company NBCUniversal recently acquired DWA. The film was originally scheduled to open Feb. 16, 2018.

Margot Robbie to Play ‘Winnie the Pooh’ Creator’s Wife in ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’.

Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie might reunite for Goodbye Christopher Robin. Robbie had a brief role in Richard Curtis’ lovely time travel film, About Time, but she’d have a significantly larger part to play in this Gleeson-led biopic. Simon Curtis‘ (My Week with Marilyn) is directing Goodbye Christopher Robin, which is about “Winnie the Pooh” creator, A. A. Milne, and his relationship with his son, Christopher Robin Milne.

Variety reports that Robbie is currently in talks to co-star in the film as A. A. Milne’s wife, Dorothy “Daphne” de Sélincourt. They were married for around 43 years. The couple had hoped for a girl, but they instead had a son, Christopher Robin Milne, an only child that inspired his father’s work. Pooh’s best pal, Christopher Robin, appeared in Milne’s “Winnie-the-Pooh”, “The House at Pooh Corner”, and several of the Disney adaptations. Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet were also the names of Robin Milne’s toys. However, A. A. Milne’s son was hardly flattered. He once said of his father’s career:

It seemed to me almost that my father has got to where he was by climbing upon my infant shoulders, that he had filched from me my good name and had left me with the empty fame of being his son.

Winnie the Pooh haunted Milne for years and years. He couldn’t escape his father’s shadow or his stories. At school, he was often teased. A. A. Milne tried to distance his son from the character, insisting they were different, but the damage was done. Even later on in Christopher Milne’s life, he didn’t find the anonymity he had always desired. When he ran the Harbour Bookshop with his first cousin/wife, he’d often have parents and kids come to the store to meet the real-life Christopher Robin.

Robin’s relationship with his mother was troubled as well. After A. A. Milne passed away, Christopher Robin Milne never saw her again. It’s a heartbreaking story, which is why I’m a little worried about Simon Curtis directing. My Week with Marilyn felt a little sugar coated, which is the last thing you want from a biopic. Goodbye Christopher Robin isn’t an uplifting or inspirational story about fathers and sons coming together, and hopefully, it doesn’t get turned into that.

Margot Robbie Scores Her First Vogue Cover and Opens Up About Boyfriend Tom Ackerley.

Margot Robbie has officially made it.

The 25-year-old Australian actress appears on her very first Vogue cover, via the magazine’s June 2016 issue. It’s a major coupe for any woman in the entertainment industry, to be sure, though Robbie previously thought she’d “made it” in Hollywood after people started spelling her name correctly. After all, it can be spelled in a variety of ways—Margaux, Margo, Margot. “I always said, ‘Mom—there was a really cool way of spelling my name, and you picked the boring way that gets everyone confused. They forget the T or call me Mar-got,'” the Legend of Tarzan star explains. “Now everyone’s finally spelling my name right—that’s how I knew I’d made it.”

Calvin Klein Names Margot Robbie Face of Deep Euphoria.

Margot Robbie
Calvin Klein has tapped Margot Robbie as the face of its soon-to-launch Deep Euphoria women’s fragrance.

The fragrance, the third of the Euphoria range, is slated for release in the fall and billed by Calvin Klein as the “more modern, empowered sister” to the existing two fragrances.

The 25-year-old actress, who attended the Met Ball Monday night dressed in a white silk crepe Calvin Klein strapless dress with cutouts, will appear in the global print and television advertising campaign for Deep Euphoria that will roll out in August. It’s the first time Robbie has fronted a fragrance brand.

It’s going to be a big summer for the actress who rose to star status after appearing in “The Wolf of Wall Street” in 2013. Robbie will star as Jane Porter in this summer’s highly anticipated “The Legend of Tarzan,” as well as “Suicide Squad.”

“The addition of Deep Euphoria to our diverse and comprehensive portfolio will fuel the development and innovation to continue driving the Calvin Klein Fragrance business,” said Vincent Brun, senior vice president of global marketing of Calvin Klein Fragrances, Coty Inc., which holds the Calvin Klein fragrance license. Brun added that Robbie “perfectly embodies the modern femininity” of the scent.

The original Euphoria debuted in 2005, with a follow-up, Endless Euphoria, nine years later. Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova was the face of the first Euphoria campaign and model Vanessa Axente the face of Endless Euphoria.

“Her [Robbie’s] beauty and talent is an expression of the incredible legacy of women who have been captured in Calvin Klein campaigns over the years,” said Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer of Calvin Klein Inc.

Robbie hosted a dinner Tuesday night in New York at the Calvin Klein Collection store to celebrate the new scent.

For Margot Robbie, the Hustle Never Stops.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. — Margot Robbie came racing into the tucked-away bungalow she was renting here. She had returned from recording the voice of a talking dingo for a DreamWorks animated movie, and on an April afternoon was doing her best to clean up strewn clothes from overstuffed suitcases — evidence that an intended one-week visit to Los Angeles had stretched into a month.

“I’m sorry it’s so manic,” said this 25-year-old actress, who was born in Gold Coast, Australia, and lives in London, yet had not seen either city in a very long time.

“I’m always like, ‘No, it will calm down next week,’” she said in a more relaxed moment, stretched across a patio couch next to a faded pillow that said “God Save the Queen.”

“And then the following week ends up being crazier.”

Ms. Robbie was on the latest leg of the globe-trotting journey that has consumed her since 2013. It began at roughly the moment that a worldwide audience discovered her in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” playing the no-nonsense lover-turned-wife of an unscrupulous broker played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
