Trailer for “Mary, Queen of Scots” has been released.

Watch here the new trailer for Margots next movie starring along side Saorise Ronan.

Yes, queens. Focus Features released the trailer Wednesday for “Mary Queen of Scots,” starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. The royal period drama features the pair of A-listers battling for the English throne amid complex family ties.

Directed by Josie Rourke and set in the 1500s, “Mary Queen of Scots” is based on the true story of two ruling monarchs — and cousins — who both believe they are the rightful heirs to the English crown. Ronan plays the titular Scottish queen on a mission to overthrow the presiding English monarchy, while Robbie portrays Elizabeth I, fighting to maintain her spot on the English throne.

Amid her attempted coup, Mary, Queen of Scots is sentenced to multiple years in prison and, eventually, execution. Produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward, “Mary Queen of Scots” will hit theaters Dec. 7.

Margot Robbie confirms January production start for Birds of Prey – Flickeringmyth

Margot Robbie is set to reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn as many as four times in the next couple of years. For now, though, her mind is on the first of those projects, Birds of Prey. As well as playing Harley, she’s also producing the movie and now she’s confirmed exclusively to Flickering Myth that shooting starts in January 2019.

In an interview to discuss Terminal, her latest film as both star and producer, Robbie pin-pointed January as the start date for Birds of Prey and described the film as “different” from the other DC titles featuring Harley Quinn. Not only will it be R rated but it’ll be made with a “much smaller budget.”

Birds of Prey is a DC Comics series featuring an all-female line-up of heroes. Which characters will appear in the film hasn’t been revealed, but Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress are emerging as the favourites to keep company with Robbie’s Harleen Quinzel. Director Cathy Yan and screenwriter Christina Hodson are already attached.

No release date for the film has been revealed so far, but we may get an official announcement later this month during Warner Bros.’ DC Films panel at the San Diego Comic-Con International.

Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap & Automatik To Produce True Tale ‘Firefighters’.

LuckyChap Entertainment and Automatik have teamed with Good Films to option Firefighters, based on Jaime Lowe’s New York Times Magazine article The Incarcerated Women Who Fight California’s Wildfires. Script will be written by Carly Wray, the Westworld and Mad Men writer/producer who recently was tapped to write one of HBO’s Game of Thrones spinoffs. Good Films will finance. The parties took the article off the table in competitive bidding.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Fred Berger and Rian Cahill will produce for Automatik, and Margot Robbie, Josey McNamara and Tom Ackerley will produce for LuckyChap Entertainment, with Scott Budnick producing through Good Films. Lowe will serve as executive producer.

Film is based on the true story of a dozen female prisoners as they move from county jail to life in a Malibu fire camp. With only three weeks of training, the diverse crew must bind together not only to fight devastating blazes, but also their own personal demons and a system that seeks to keep them invisible. It is a task they signed up for, and get paid $2 an hour to risk their lives.

LuckyChap Entertainment, which produced I, Tonya and recently wrapped (with Automatik) the Robbie-starrer Dreamland, is repped by Management 360, CAA, and attorney Jeff Bernstein. Wray is repped by WME and Grandview and Lowe by UTA and The Jud Laghi Agency. Automatik is in post on the Karyn Kusama-directed Destroyer with Nicole Kidman, the Chris Weitz-directed Operation Finale with Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley, and Dreamland.

Good Films was launched by Budnick to fund films that will engender social change. He recently lobbied for the state of California to hire formerly incarcerated men and women into firefighting careers, and in January, Governor Brown included this program in the state budget, the first program created in California’s history to intentionally train and place released men and woman into careers where they will be fighting wild-land fires and saving communities. Endeavor Content is a lead investor in Good Films.
