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”.

Margot Robbie smolders in first look at noir thriller Terminal.

Highland Film Group has released a first-look image from the upcoming noir thriller Terminal, Vaughn Stein’s tale of two hitmen. When the pair take on a mysterious, dangerous, and highly profitable mission, they encounter a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) along the way, only to learn that she may have more of a connection to their case than they initially expected.

Not only does Robbie star in the film, but Terminal is also her first project as a producer. She’s also attached to star in and produce the upcoming Tonya Harding movie I, Tonya, as well as an untitled Harley Quinn spinoff.

Margot Robbie to Star in Period Love Drama ‘Queen of the Air’.

The script from the 2013 book tells the story of trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel and her tragic love affair with Alfredo Codona.
Margot Robbie is going from Quinn to Queen.

The actress, fresh from her standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, is attached to star in Queen of the Air, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the book by Dean N. Jensen.

Andrew Lazar, one of the producers of the studio’s mega hit American Sniper, is producing the period love drama, which has a script by Cat Vasko.
Jensen’s book, published by Crown in 2013, told the story of Lillian Leitzel, a trapeze artist who in the early 20th century was one of the biggest stars in the world as she performed for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Her tragic love affair with Alfredo Codona, who may have been one of the best trapeze artists to ever flip under the big top, also was chronicled. The two were tempestuous artists, divas and madly in love.

Leitzel, who was 4 foot, 9 inches tall, had a signature move that required her to dislocate her shoulder at every turn (she would do the move a hundred times) and had wrists that had been grooved from ropes.

Codona, for his part, regularly executed the Triple: three somersaults in the air so dangerous that other performers died trying to do it.

The book tracked their rise to fame, from the mud-caked small-town circuses to the big time, and their marriage and tragic deaths just a few years later.

Niija Kuykendall is overseeing the project.

There is no director yet for Queen of the Air but the attachment shows how keen Warners is on staying in the Robbie business. The actress already has starred in 2015’s Focus and this summer’s The Legend of Tarzan for the studio and Suicide Squad has generated much buzz for Robbie for her turn as the DC Comics villainess. Plans are already afoot for Robbie to star in and develop a spinoff featuring Harley Quinn and other DC female heroes and villains.

The actress next shoots Goodbye Christopher Robin, Fox Searchlight’s tale of A.A. Milne and his writing of Winnie the Pooh.

Robbie is repped by Management 360, CAA, Jackoway Tyerman and Australia’s Aran Michael Management.

Harley Quinn Spinoff Not A Done Deal

In a recent interview, Margot Robbie put the brakes on the excitement about a Harley Quinn solo film to spin out of Suicide Squad.

It seemed like it was a done deal.

Just a couple of months ago, The Hollywood Reporter had seemingly confirmed what was suspected for a long time: a Harley Quinn solo film was in the works. Word was that Margot Robbie had fallen in love with the character while making Suicide Squad and, since more Margot Robbie is never a bad thing, Warner Bros. had given the film the green light.

The idea was to use the film to not only further flesh out Harley Quinn, but use it to introduce a whole slew of female superheroes into the DC Extended Universe. Word was that the movie would feature not only Quinn, but Batgirl and the Birds of Prey as well.

But while it seemed everyone ran with the story (FlickSided included) one important person remained mum on the project: Warner Bros.

Now it would appear there were reasons for that because, to the surprise of many, it looks like the Harley Quinn film is not a sure thing.

While being interviewed for the Canadian outlet Tribute, she was asked point blank if the Harley Quinn film was indeed happening. Her response is not going to make fans very happy.

“We’re not sure.”
Wow, That’s a bummer.

Although when you consider that Warner Bros. never actually confirmed that the project was a go, we shouldn’t be very shocked. Suicide Squad hasn’t even opened yet and it is highly unlikely they were going to green light a spinoff before they see if the original finds an audience.

They also asked her what she would like to see in a Harley Quinn film if one does made at some point.

“Just more of Harley. I’m just so not done playing that character and there’s so much more to do with her – and as anyone who’s read the comics knows, there’s a million different storylines to explore. There’s just so much you can do in the DC Universe so I think it would be cool.”

So it appears all hope is not lost. Robbie seems like she is still very enthusiastic about making a Harley Quinn film. If Suicide Squad does half as much business as analysts are projecting, it’s a safe bet she will be playing the character for years to come.

Margot Robbie to Produce and Star in Adaptation of the Book Bad Monkeys.

Everything’s coming up Margot! As the Australian actress does the final press rounds for Suicide Squad, which opens August 5, she will have a little more to talk about now that she’s set to star in and produce an adaptation of Matt Ruff’s 2007 book Bad Monkeys. Robbie will play the role of Jane Charlotte, a woman who gets tossed into the psychiatric wing of a jail after being arrested for murder and telling the police she’s actually part of an evil-quashing organization called the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons. For short, they go by “Bad Monkeys.” The cops don’t buy Jane’s yarn, and the story becomes a psychological thriller that forces viewers to sort out whether she’s lying, crazy, or executing some kind of greater plan from behind bars. This is just the most recent film brought under the banner of Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, which is also developing I, Tonya, the story of disgraced Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding, and the noir thriller Terminal. Robbie is set to star in both — just as God intended.

ESPN’s 2016 ESPY Awards are airing tonight, and Warner Bros. put together a fun little sketch with New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski to help promote Suicide Squad to the sports crowd!

In the video above, we see Margot Robbie as herself, talking to Suicide Squad set therapist “Dr.” Rob Gronkowski, a play on the psychiatrist that Robbie portrays in the movie — Dr. Harleen Quinzel. Before she goes crazy and turns into Harley Quinn, of course!

The sketch ends with Gronkowski sympathizing with Robbie’s crazy “squad”, saying that his squad (the Patriots) gets a lot of hate too.

It’s a fun little sketch, and once again shows that Warner Bros. is thinking outside the box with the way they promote Suicide Squad. Check it out above! The movie will be in theaters on August 5th.
