GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

MARGOT ROBBIE (Daphne Milne) is a talented actress who has captivated global audiences with breakout performances alongside some of the most notable names in film. Continually evolving her diverse body of work, Robbie brings gripping narratives to life in coveted roles that speak to her powerful on-screen presence.

Robbie recently wrapped production on I, TONYA, which she stars in as the titled character, and served as a producer on under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. The film tells the story of controversial Olympic figure skater, Tonya Harding, who infamously conspired to have her competition, Nancy Kerrigan, injured before the 1994 Winter Olympics. Craig Gillespie directs the screenplay by Steven Rogers.

Robbie currently has five films in development under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

First is BAD MONKEYS, based on Matt Ruff's 2007 novel of the same name. The film is centered around Jane Charlotte, who lands herself in the Las Vegas Clark County Detention Center after she is arrested for murder. Jane claims she works for a secret organization, the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons, also known as "Bad Monkeys." Universal Pictures optioned the rights to the psychological thriller to be adapted by Bluegrass Films' Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark, with Josey McNamara and Margot Robbie as executive producers.

Second is BEAUTIFUL THINGS, which LuckyChap Entertainment is producing alongside Warner Bros., and Di Novi Pictures. The film, based on the Gin Phillips' thriller novel of the same name, focuses on a mother and son trapped in a zoo with a gunman on the loose.

Next, Robbie will star and executive produce alongside David Ayer in Warner Bros' GOTHAM CITY SIRENS. She will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in the film, which will focus on the top female villains from DC Comics.

Additionally, LuckyChap Entertainment will produce MARIAN alongside Donald De Line and Amy Pascal. Robbie is set to star as "Maid Marian," who picks up the cause to lead her people into a pivotal war after the love of her life, Robin Hood, dies. Finally, LuckyChap Entertainment has partnered with Automatik to produce 1930s Dust Bowl thriller, DREAMLAND. Robbie is set to star in the film, which follows a 15-year-old boy who beats out the FBI and local police to find and capture a fugitive bank robber (Robbie), only to learn that she's far more than what authorities claim her to be. Miles Joris-Peyrafitte will direct the film written by Nicolaas Zwart.

Upcoming, Robbie is also set to star as "Queen Elizabeth" in Josie Rourke's MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS opposite Saoirse Ronan as "Mary Stuart."
