First look at Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson in new biopic of Winnie the Pooh author AA Milne.

Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie in Goodbye Christopher Robbin

The first pictures from Fox’s forthcoming film about the life of AA Milne have been released, showing Domhnall Gleeson (The Revenant, The Force Awakens) as the Winnie the Pooh author, with Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie as his wife, Daphne.

Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughn, the film charts the Milnes as they struggle with fame in the years following the First World War, as well as their relationship with their son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), who inspired the beloved Winnie the Pooh books.

Director Simon Curtis said he was “delighted” to be telling the “remarkable and poignant story” of their lives. The film’s cast will also feature Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who recently starred in the title role of BBC sitcom Fleabag, alongside Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys) and Alex Lawther (The Imitation Game, Black Mirror).

“I’m thrilled to finally see this fascinating story be realized with such an array of fresh and exciting talent,” said producer Damian Jones, while his co-producer Steve Christian added: “It’s such a joy to be able to share the long held passion that I’ve felt for this story and to see it all come together with a team that I could never have dreamt possible.”

The project is currently untitled, though earlier this summer it was reported that the film would be called Goodbye Christopher Robin. As yet, no release date for the film has been announced.

MARGOT ROBBIE ADORES METALLICA MORE THAN HARLEY QUINN LOVES MISTAH J

When celebrities swing through a late-night talk show, they’re usually paired with a musical guest — they’re just not usually paired with one of their absolute favorite bands of all time.

Margot Robbie totally freaked out on The Tonight Show Thursday (September 29) when she was reminded that she was in studio with Metallica, and it turns out Harley Quinn herself is an avid metalhead who loses her shit at the mere prospect of breathing the same air as James Hetfield & Co.

“I had a real heavy metal phase when I was 14, and I dyed my hair black, and I only cut it with a razor blade, and I only wore band shirts, and only listened to the heaviest of heavy metal,” she gushed to Jimmy Fallon.

She revealed that she was not only a massive Metallica fan, but listened to Silverstein, Bullet for My Valentine, and Slipknot on repeat as a teenager.

“I went to a Slipknot concert, and it was actually to this day the best concert I’ve ever gone to,” she continued. “They’re just amazing performers. Even if you don’t like metal, I think you’d appreciate a Slipknot concert, because it’s just incredible to watch.”

Actress Closes Harley Quinn Spinoff Deal; New Photo Leaked!

It’s official. Margot Robbie is set to star in a standalone Harley Quinn movie of Warner Bros. Pictures and DC. Recent reports confirm that the Suicide Squad actress has signed a “first look” deal to produce a Harley Quinn-led spinoff. Read on to learn more about Robbie’s upcoming projects as the “sexy psychotic super-villain.”

FanBolt reports the Margot Robbie has officially signed up to be part of Harley Quinn’s upcoming solo movie outing. The actress is set to take on a double role as an executive producer for the project. Her character, Harley, is gearing up to lead a cast of female DC superheroes and villains.

The publication cites a previous report from The Hollywood Reporter. According to the said source, Robbie was the “impetus for the project.” An excerpt from the article reads:

“When she got the part for the movie, she dove deep into the comics to learn as much as possible about the character. In the process, she fell for DC’s female characters. She brought on the writer to help develop the project and brought it to Warners, which snapped it up.”

The actress also spoke about her plans for the upcoming movie. But apart from having a Harley Quinn-led film, she also wants to reunite her character with Jared Leto’s Joker. Fans, after all, haven’t seen enough of Harley Quinn and the Joker during their previous film. “I’m trying to make that happen,” Robbie said. “Not for anything specifically, but just something – there’s so much more to do.”

In other news, a new photo from the set of Suicide Squad has finally introduced Margot Robbie’s sexy stunt double. According to Morning News USA, the image surfaced on Reddit recently, showing the actress with her stunt double. The two ladies are both wearing clothes from the club scene in Suicide Squad.

The publication reveals that most of Robbie’s action and gymnastic stunts were done by her stunt double. One could only speculate on whether the two would work together in Harley Quinn’s upcoming films. Apart from the villain’s standalone movie, Robbie is set to reprise her role in Ben Affleck’s untitled Batman movie.

Margot keeps it real: ‘Listen up ladies ‘cause this s**t matters!’

MARGOT Robbie has joined her Suicide Squad bestie Cara Delevinge in raising awareness about female cancers.

The Queensland star took to Instagram yesterday to share a snap of herself wearing a Lady Garden Campaign hoodie.

“Listen up ladies ‘cause this s**t matters!” she wrote.

“Educate yourselves, help raise awareness, donate.”

Robbie, 26, joins a string of celebs including fellow Aussie Natalie Imbruglia, Vogue Williams, and Elizabeth Hurley donning the jumpers to raise awareness and money for the Gynecological Cancer Fund.

Delevinge has fronted this year’s campaign, which involved a set of pictures in which she appeared wearing only the Lady Garden sweatshirt along with a strategically placed sunflower.

Last year’s campaign saw the likes of Ellie Goulding and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley throw their support behind it on social media.

The campaign also aims to empower women everywhere to talk more openly – without shyness or shame – about gynaecological cancers, which are often referred to as “the silent killers”.
