She also served as a producer on the film under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment and received an Oscar nomination for her performance.

Robbie is currently in production on Miles Joris-Peyrafitte's 1930s Dust Bowl drama Dreamland, which her production company LuckyChap Entertainment produced along with Automatik. Robbie stars 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.

She recently wrapped production on Josie Rourke's Mary Queen of Scots where she stars as Queen Elizabeth opposite Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart. The Focus Features project will take on the historic rivalry between cousins Elizabeth and Mary, when the latter attempted to overthrow Elizabeth's seat on the English throne.

Robbie has numerous film and television development projects under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner, all of which correspond to her objective of telling stories with strong female characters, the four most-notable being Bad Monkeys, Fierce Kingdom, Marian and The Paper Bag Princess.

Bad Monkeys, based on Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, centers 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 Dylan Clark, with Robbie as a producer and Josey McNamara as executive producer.

LuckyChap Entertainment is producing Fierce Kingdom alongside Warner Bros. and Di Novi Pictures. The film, based on the Gin Phillips thriller novel, Beautiful Things, focuses on a mother and son trapped in a zoo with a gunman on the loose.
Additionally, LuckyChap 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, LuckChap is producing The Paper Bag Princess alongside Elizabeth Banks' Brownstone Productions, Bryan Unkeless' Clubhouse Pictures and Dan Krech. Universal Pictures has optioned the rights to the bestselling children's book of the same name.

Last summer, Robbie appeared in Warner Bros' Suicide Squad, playing the coveted role of Harley Quinn opposite Jared Leto, Will Smith, and Viola Davis. Robbie's portrayal of Quinn is the first time the villainous fan-favorite comic book character was revealed on the big screen. The film, directed by David Ayer, was released August 5, 2016 and currently ranks 9th in 2016 worldwide gross box office with more than $745,600,000 million. Robbie also portrayed the legendary classic character "Jane Porter" in David Yates' The Legend of Tarzan, opposite Alexander Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, and Christoph Waltz. The action-adventure Warner Bros film was released on July 1, 2016 and grossed more than $356,700,000 million worldwide.

Robbie is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort, the film tells the story of a New York penny stockbroker (DiCaprio) who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world, and mob infiltration. Starring as DiCaprio's wife in the film, Robbie is joined by an all-star cast of actors including Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau and Kyle Chandler.

Additional film credits include: Paramount's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot opposite Tina Fey; Roadside Attraction's Z for Zachariah opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine; Warner Bros' Focus, opposite Will Smith; Suite Française alongside Michelle Williams, Kristen Scott Thomas and Matthias Schoenaerts; and About Time opposite Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson.

Robbie made her U.S. debut in the critically acclaimed ABC series, Pan Am, in 2011. The period drama depicted the lives of the pilots and stewardesses who once made Pan Am the most glamorous way to fly. Robbie starred as "Laura," a runaway bride, who fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies. The series was created by Jack Orman (ER, Men of a Certain Age), and also starred Christina Ricci.

In Australia, Robbie is most recognized for her role as "Donna Freedman" on the television soap opera Neighbours which chronicled the lives of the residents of Ramsay Street in the fictional Australian suburb of Erinsborough.
