Margot Robbie has shared sneak peek photos from her upcoming bank robber thriller, Dreamland.

The Australian actress shared the stills on Friday, where she could be seen cuddling up to male co-star Finn Cole behind the wheel of a vintage vehicle.

The 28-year-old used the Instagram post to promote the film’s anticipated premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in the coming weeks.

The film, which Margot and her husband Tom Ackerley produced, is set during the Depression-era in Oklahoma and centres on a young boy’s search for a fugitive bank robber, played by Margot, who has a bounty on her head.

Margot embraced her natural beauty in the first preview photo, pictures behind the wheel with little makeup on and her blonde locks messily brushed off her face.

The man in the photo is English actor Finn Cole, 21, who appears to play one of the Hollywood star’s love interests in the film.

Margot was also pictured in a different scene, where she was driving a car alongside her gun-toting co-star Garrett Hedlund.

‘Our film Dreamland will be premiering at the 2019 @Tribeca Film Festival!! Tickets will go on sale on March 26th. See you there! #Tribeca2019,’ she boasted in the caption.

The film is directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and will also feature another Australian actor Travis Fimmel from the series Vikings.

Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie ‘are in the running’ to play gangland lawyer Nicola Gobbo in Foxtel’s new TV series.

Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie are reportedly being considered to play the lead in a new Foxtel series.

The Sunday Telegraph believes that the two actresses are part of a possible list, that also includes Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Debicki and Asher Keddie.

Foxtel has commissioned an eight-part series, Lawyer X: The Story of Informer 3838, based on the life of gangland lawyer and police informant Nicola Gobbo.

Foxtel’s executive producer of TV Brian Walsh, told The Sunday Telegraph that the new series will feature ‘cops, crims, capers, sex and betrayal.’

‘Our ambition is to cast someone who is brave and ready to embody this complex and controversial character and her story,’ Brian said.

The Sunday Telegraph understands that the series will be based on articles published by The Herald Sun, with journalists acting as consultants.

On Friday, Nicola was finally unveiled as the mysterious ‘Lawyer X’ who for years had passed confidential information from her gangland clients – including Carl Williams – on to police.

For years, her dangerous double-life was kept a secret until it was lifted by the High Court last week.

Victoria Police argued that identifying Nicola as ‘Lawyer X’ would put the lives of her and her two children at risk.

The full bench of High Court judges agreed, but said there was more at stake.

‘Large though those considerations may be, they do not detract from the conclusion that it is ­essential in the public interest for the information to be disclosed,’ they told the court.

Immediately after the decision, Nicola and her two children went into hiding.

Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap, Paramount Team for Musical ‘Big Gay Jamboree’.

Alethea Jones is attached to direct the feature that just got set up at Paramount.
Margot Robbie is stepping into the world of movie musicals.

The Australian A-lister and her LuckyChap Entertainment production company will produce Big Gay Jamboree, a period musical that just got set up at Paramount.

Alethea Jones is attached to direct the feature project that will be written by rising scribes Marla Mindelle and Jonathan Parks-Ramage.

Jamboree tells of a young woman who, after waking up in a strange town, realizes that she has been transported into a 1940s musical. She brings her modern, raunchy sensibility to this more naïve world and meets new friends along the way who help her figure out what happened and how she can find her way home.

The project has been described as being tonally in the vein of The Book of Mormon, the envelope-pushing musical comedy about two missionaries in Africa, and Oklahoma! The latter is the classic (and wholesome) Rodgers and Hammerstein musical centering on a love triangle in turn of the 20th century in the American Midwest.

Robbie, who will not star in the project, will produce via her LuckyChap banner and partners Josey McNamara and Tom Ackerly. Ari Lubet, Greg Walter and Dave Becky of 3 Arts will also produce. Vanessa Joyce will oversee for Paramount.

LuckyChap is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Jackoway Austen. Jones is with Paradigm and Lichter Grossman. Parks-Ramage and Mindelle are repped by 3 Arts and Hansen Jacobson.

Margot Robbie confirmed to star as Barbie in new live-action movie.

Margot Robbie has some big shoes to fill!

Mattel and Warner Bros. Pictures officially announced on Tuesday that the 28-year-old actress will portray the role of Barbie in their upcoming live-action movie, confirming the news ET first reported in October 2018.

“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery,” Robbie, who will also co-produce the film, said in a statement. “Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president. I’m so honored to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.”

“Barbie is one of the most iconic franchises in the world and we are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Pictures and Margot Robbie to bring her to life on the big screen,” added Ynon Kreiz, Chairman and CEO of Mattel. “We look forward to building on this collaboration with Warner Bros. Pictures as we tell the stories of our beloved brands. Mattel Films is on a path to demonstrate the enormous potential of our brand portfolio, as we continue to execute on our strategy of transforming Mattel into an IP-driven, high performing toy company.”

According to a press release, this marks the brand’s first ever live-action feature film, as well as the first announced deal out of Mattel’s newly-established Mattel Films, led by Academy Award-nominated producer Robbie Brenner.

The role of Barbie was originally supposed to be played by Amy Schumer. A source told ET in December 2016 that the plot would involve Barbie getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being “perfect enough,” and her then embarking on an adventure in the real world.

But in a statement to ET in July 2017, the 37-year-old comedian revealed she was dropping out. “Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” Schumer’s statement read. “The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.”
