Margot Robbie, Warner Bros. Announce Harley Quinn Solo Movie
Movies| | By Sara Wilkins
Actress Margot Robbie is executive producing a Suicide Squad spin-off starring her character Harley Quinn as part of a production deal with Warner Bros.
The Wolf of Wall Street star has signed a first-look deal with the studio, meaning Warner executives get first refusal on projects produced and developed by Robbie under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner, which she runs with her boyfriend Tom Ackerley. The couple met in 2013, when Ackerley was an assistant director on the set of the World War II drama Suite Française. Friends Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr are also involved.
Robbie has already worked with the studio on a few titles, including Focus, The Legend of Tarzan, and 2016 box office smash Suicide Squad, in which she played the sometimes villainous Harley Quinn. The character is due to star in her own spin-off movie alongside other heroines from the DC Comics and Robbie will executive produce the project.
She also has an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen book Queen of the Air: A True Story of Love and Tragedy at the Circus, about a renowned trapeze artist, in the works with the studio, which she is attached to star in.
The LuckyChap Entertainment team have already finished shooting thriller Terminal and are currently developing a biopic about disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding and an adaptation of Matt Ruff’s novel Bad Monkeys.
