Margot Signs First-Look Deal With Warner Bros.

Margot Robbie Signs First-Look Deal With Warner Bros. (Exclusive)

The Aussie actress already has two projects set at the studio, including a spinoff for her ‘Suicide Squad’ character Harley Quinn.

Margot Robbie is setting down roots at Warner Bros.

The Aussie actress is signing a first-look deal with the studio behind her summer Suicide Squad to develop and produce feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

Producing and developing with Robbie will be her LuckyChap colleagues Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr.

Robbie, whose breakout performance came in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, is only 26 years old but has quickly grasped control of her career in a way few actors, especially female actors, do, steadily wading into the world of producing.

Robbie and LuckyChap are in postproduction on their first movie as producers, the upcoming neo noir thriller Terminal. LuckyChap also is developing and producing a Tonya Harding biopic, I, Tonya, where the actress will play the disgraced figure skater, and is developing an adaptation of Bad Monkeys, a novel by Matt Ruff, along with Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark for Universal Pictures.

Warner Bros. has built a relationship with the actress, who starred in Focus and The Legend of Tarzan for the studio before becoming one of the key factors as to why Suicide Squad grossed over $700 million worldwide.

The actress already has two projects set at Warners: a Suicide Squad spinoff for her character Harley Quinn (as well as other DC heroines) that she will executive produce and an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s Queen of the Air to which she is attached to star.

The first-look deal underlines Warner Bros.’ renewed focus on female-driven storytelling and comes after some notables moves from the Burbank-based studio.

It created the Warner Bros. Emerging Film Directors Workshop earlier this year as a program to increase female voices, among other under-represented sectors, which was spearheaded by the studio’s president, creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman.

Warners has Wonder Woman, based on DC’s iconic female superhero, coming out next year and was firm in its commitment to find a female director for that movie. And it is prepping Ocean’s Ocho, a female-centric take on Ocean’s 11 that will feature an A-list female ensemble.

Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Jeff Bernstein of Jackoway Tyerman.

Margot is the face of Calvin Klein’s fragrance

Monday evening, Margot Robbie captioned her pre-Met Ball Instagram, “#metgala with @calvin klein, more to come …” — and she wasn’t kidding about that last part.

 

This morning, the American fashion house revealed that the Wolf of Wall Street actress is the new face of its Deep Euphoria fragrance, and will star in television and print ads for the latest iteration of the Euphoria franchise.
 

At only 25, Robbie joins a high-profile legion of actors who have starred in TV spots for fragrances — think Charlize Theron and Johnny Depp for Dior, Keira Knightley for Chanel and Julia Roberts for Lancome. Specifics for the campaign have yet to be revealed, but fingers crossed Robbie’s ad includes all the seductive whispering and ambiguous dialogue we’ve come to love from the strange world of fragrance campaigns.
 

Like Robbie herself, who stars as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad alongside Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne, Calvin Klein has kept busy, too. In the same week that the brand announced the departure of men’s and women’s creative directors, Italo Zuccheli and Francisco Costa, Calvin Klein also revealed the casting of Internet sensation Cameron Dallas in a beachy campaign for a spring capsule collection.
