Margot Robbie’s Thriller ‘Terminal’ Lands at RLJE Films

RLJE Films has acquired all U.S. rights to Vaughn Stein’s noir thriller “Terminal,” starring Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons, and Dexter Fletcher.

The deal with Highland Film Group was announced on Wednesday, a day after Robbie received an Academy Award nomination in the best actress category for her role in “I, Tonya.” Robbie is also a producer on “The Terminal,” as she is on “I, Tonya,” through her LuckyChap Entertainment production company.

RLJE Films plans to release the movie in theaters in the spring. Written by Stein, “Terminal” follows two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor, and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind.

Besides Robbie, the other producers are Tom Ackerley, who also produced “I, Tonya,” and Josey McNamara under their LuckyChap Entertainment banner, David Barron of Beagle Pug, Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser, Molly Hassell, and Teun Hilte.

Robbie also stars as Queen Elizabeth I opposite Saoirse Ronan in the upcoming historical drama “Mary, Queen of Scots,” which is slated for release by Focus Features on Nov. 2.

Mark Ward and Jess De Leo from RLJE negotiated the deal with CAA and Alana Crow at Highland Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

‘I, Tonya’ Stars Margot Robbie & Allison Janney Set For Santa Barbara Film Fest Honors.

A pair of I, Tonya stars will be skating into California’s Central Coast to accept some hardware next month. Margot Robbie and Allison Janney, who play Tonya Harding and her mother LaVona Golden in Neon’s awards contender, will receive the Santa Barbara Film Festival’s 2018 Outstanding Performers of the Year Award.

The Critics’ Choice Award winners will be honored February 8 during a tribute at the Arlington Theatre. The 33rd SBIFF runs January 31-February 10.

“Allison and Margot bring biting humor and an emotional resonance to their real-life characters in I, Tonya,” said Roger Durling, the festival’s executive director. “We are proud to celebrate them and their incredible contributions to cinema.”

Robbie and Janney are regulars on this season’s awards circuit. Both were nominated for Golden Globes — Janney won — and are up for Spirit, SAG and BAFTA awards. Their darkly comedic film is based on the true tale of Harding, who rises through the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Heading into the 1994 Winter Olympics, she was to face her American rival Nancy Kerrigan — until Harding’s husband tried to eliminate that threat.

This year’s festival will also honor Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) with the American Riviera Award, Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) with its Santa Barbara Award, Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) with its Maltin Modern Master Award, Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) with its Cinema Vanguard Award, and Daniel Kaluuya, Gal Gadot, Hong Chau, John Boyega, Kumail Nanjiani, Mary J. Blige, and Timothée Chalamet with its Virtuosos Award.
