Margot Robbie to appear at Hamptons International Film Festival for Tonya Harding movie.

Margot Robbie will accompany her new film, “I, Tonya,” at the Hamptons International Film Festival next month.

The film, which features Robbie as the disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, will serve as the festival’s closing-night screening.

Robbie, currently riding a wave of success following her portrayal of the supervillain Harley Quinn in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” is one of the bigger names to grace the Hamptons festival in recent years. Also in attendance will be Sam Rockwell, Annette Bening, Josh Gad, Richard Jenkins and Jamie Bell. Director Jordan Peele and actor Daniel Kaluuya will also be on hand for a discussion of their racially-themed horror-satire “Get Out,” a critical hit from earlier this year.

The festival has yet to announce additions to its popular live interview series, “A Conversation With . . . ,” which so far features just one guest, writer-director Rob Reiner.

The festival’s full film lineup, officially announced Monday, includes “Darkest Hour,” an early Oscar contender starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill; “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” based on the real-life romance between a young actor (Bell) and a legendary leading lady (Bening); “Marshall,” a biopic about a young Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman); Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” in which Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler play the sons of a famous artist (Dustin Hoffman); and Todd Haynes’ time-spanning drama “Wonderstruck,” starring Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams.

Margot Robbie to appear on the The Graham Norton Show comeback.

The Graham Norton Show will be returning to screens soon, and a suitably star-studded sofa is being lined up.

The chat show host will return to the BBC on Friday, September 29 at the programme’s regular time slot of 10.35pm.

And he won’t be alone, as he’ll be joined by Blade Runner 2049 stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, as well as Margot Robbie and Reese Witherspoon, plus musical guests Bananarama.

Robbie will be there promoting her role in British biopic Goodbye Christopher Robin, while Reese will be promoting her forthcoming Nancy Meyers-produced romantic comedy Home Again.

What a line-up, eh?

First out in cinemas is Witherspoon’s Home Again, which will be in UK theatres on the same day The Graham Norton Show returns on September 29.

The movie – produced by romantic comedy legend Nancy Meyers and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer – follows the adventures of a single mother in Los Angeles who invites three young men to live with her after sleeping with one of them.

Blade Runner 2049 will be coming to screens on October 6, while Robbie’s AA Milne biopic will follow on October 13.

While we doubt any of the guests will be boring, at least Graham will be prepared if they are.

Indeed, speaking on Stephen Colbert’s US chat show last month, Norton revealed exactly how he deals with boring guests on his sofa – and the whole thing is rather inspired.

The Graham Norton Show returns at 10.35pm on September 29 on BBC One.

Margot Robbie Reveals When She’ll Suit Up As Harley Quinn Next

The DC Extended Universe can be a confusing place, and it isn’t just fans who feel a bit lost with the franchise. Margot Robbie recently opened up about when she’ll next don Harley Quinn’s pigtails, but the star isn’t sure what she will be doing it for.

The Wrap caught up with Robbie this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the topic of Harley Quinn came up. When asked about her upcoming film schedule, the actress did say she would be getting back into the DC role quite soon.

“I think next year I’ll be back in the fishnets [and] wielding a baseball bat,” Said Robbie.

However, when she was asked if the appearance would be for DC’s Joker & Harley Quinn spin-off, the actress was less certain.

“You’re guess is as good as mine at this point. I don’t know.”

Harley Quinn Movies: See Margot Robbie’s Upcoming DCEU Films

“Suicide Squad” isn’t considered a great movie, but it did give audiences Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie’s crazy criminal was a hit with audiences, and it looks like the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) will be keeping the actress busy with new movies for quite a while.

“Suicide Squad 2”

It may not have been a hit with critics, but audiences paid plenty of money to see the first installment. It made over $745 million worldwide, and that’s enough reason for Warner Bros. to make a sequel.

The movie is reportedly being fast-tracked so that Warner Bros. can get the movie made before the cast’s contracts run out. Exactly who is coming back has not been confirmed. It’s seems unlikely that the movie would return without a fan favorite like Harley Quinn.

Not everyone will return, though. Cara Delevingne, who played the Enchantress, noted that she was unlikely to return after her character was defeated. “It was a life-changing experience and of course I’d do another one, but I don’t think it would make sense for the character,” she told USA Today last month.

“Suicide Squad 2” does not have a director yet, but 2019 release date is rumored.

Untitled Joker and Harley Quinn Movie

Robbie will definitely reunite with Jared Leto for the most recently announced Harley Quinn movie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (“This is Us,” “Crazy Stupid Love”) will write and helm the movie about Gotham’s most dangerous couple.

It isn’t clear exactly what arc the story will follow, but the movie will be set after the “Suicide Squad” sequel. An insider described the movie to THR as “an insane and twisted love story. ‘When Harry Met Sally’ on benzedrine.”

Viewers saw flashbacks to the beginning of the Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley’s romance in “Suicide Squad.” Harley was the Joker’s psychologist while he was locked up, but she fell in love with him. Once he pushed her into a toxic vat, she completed her transition to becoming the maniacal criminal audiences love. Though their scenes were just a small part of the movie, it was enough to whet fans’ appetites for a full Joker and Harley movie.

“Gotham City Sirens”

Harley’s girl power team-up with Catwoman and Poison Ivy was rumored to be dropped after the Joker and Harley’s spinoff movie was announced. However, it seems the female-fronted flick is just delayed.

“Harley, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are super important to us — And a super cool team, too!” an anonymous source at Warner Bros. told Forbes.

The movie is expected to be loosely based on the “Gotham City Sirens” comic that was launched in 2009. Harley and Poison Ivy are trying to figure out Batman’s true identity, so they try to give Catwoman a truth serum. That doesn’t get them their information, but Catwoman eventually joins the evil ladies on their mission.

Margot Robbie to Produce Science-Fiction Thriller ‘Augmented’ for Warner Bros.

Margot Robbie Maid Marian

Margot Robbie and Denise Di Novi have come on board as producers for Warner Bros. on the Mark Townsend science-fiction thriller “Augmented”.

The studio has acquired the rights to Townsend’s spec script and is keeping the logline under wraps. No actors are attached to “Augmented” at this point.

Both Robbie and Di Novi have first-look deals with Warner Bros. Carmen Lewis will also produce for Di Novi, along with Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara through Robbie’s LuckyChap company. Warner Bros. executives Chantal Nong and Sheila Walcott will oversee the project.

Townend’s time-travel script “Contingency Protocol” appeared on the 2016 Black List with Bellevue Productions, Storyscape Entertainment, and Weed Road attached to produce and Broad Green financing.

Robbie signed her first-look deal last year. She has starred in three Warner Bros. films — “Focus,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Suicide Squad.” She’s starring in “Suicide Squad” spinoff “Gotham City Sirens” for her character Harley Quinn and will executive produce.

Robbie is also starring in the Tonya Harding biopic “I, Tonya,” which will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, and in Fox Searchlight’s “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” which opens Oct. 13. She’s also a producer on “I, Tonya.”

Di Novi made her directorial debut with Rosario Dawson’s “Unforgettable.” She produced Robbie’s “Focus” and has dozens of producing credits dating back to 1988’s “Heathers.”

Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360, and Jackoway Tyerman. DiNovi is repped by CAA, Rain Management Group, and Bloom Hergott. Townend is repped by Verve, Bellevue, and Marios Rush.

Margot Robbie Brings Winnie the Pooh’s Backstory to Life in the Goodbye Christopher Robin Trailer.

Goodbye Christopher Robin’s newest trailer was released Thursday on Robbie’s Instagram account. The film tells the story of popular British author A. A. Milne (Gleeson) and his wife Daphne de Sélincourt Milne (Robbie) as he crafts Pooh Bear and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood with the help of the couple’s son, Christopher Robin. Oh, and the help of Christopher’s stuffed animals, too.

But although the first Goodbye Christopher Robin trailer seemed to attempt to garner award-season buzz with its pleasant British colloquialisms and literary nostalgia, this one chooses to dig deeper into the psyche of A.A. Milne, who was experiencing major bouts of PTSD after returning home from serving as a captain during World War I. Will he be able to write his whimsical, honey-guzzling tales after what he witnessed overseas? And perhaps more poignantly, should he? Although we know the answer now, it gave Milne a major crisis of conscience at the time, especially considering his writing would propel his family to a level of fame he was never going to be comfortable with.

Also starring period drama staple Kelly Macdonald and Fleabag’s delightful Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Goodbye Christopher Robin will be released on October 13. They will not be playing Kanga or Piglet, sorry.
