- TV Show
Following a successful showing at the domestic box office across 2016, Margot Robbie has lined up yet another hefty big screen endeavor.
EW has confirmed Robbie is attached to star in Marian, a historical epic revolving around the titular character adapted from Robin Hood folklore.
The actress’ LuckyChap Entertainment label is producing the project, which chronicles a conspiracy to conquer England involving famed hero Robin Hood, the love of Marian’s life. Inspired by Robin Hood’s untimely death, Marian leads her people into war, becoming a legend herself as she carries the torch lit by her former lover.
In addition to LuckyChap, Donald De Line, Amy Pascal, and Rock Shaink will produce. Deadline, which first broke the news, reports Sony has pre-empted the spec script from screenwriter Pete Barry.
Robbie is currently shooting I, Tonya, the Craig Gillespie-helmed biopic about figure skater Tonya Harding. She will also reprise her role as Harley Quinn in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad spinoff Gotham City Sirens, which follows the exploits of DC Comics’ top villainesses, including Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
