Following her Oscar-nominated turn in "Bombshell", Margot Robbie looks to have found her next project, signing on to co-star opposite Christian Bale in a new David O. Russell film at New Regency.
No details were given about the film’s plot other then it is based on an original idea by Russell. New Regency will produce and distribute through their deal with 20th Century Studios formerly known as Fox. Matthew Budman will also produce.
Russell had been considering a handful of options in the last few months as he waited for the right cast to come together this project. With Bale and Robbie’s schedules opening, the opportunity to direct his first film since 2015’s “Joy” looks to be headed in the right direction.
Robbie is coming off a busy 2019 that included appearing in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", where she played Sharon Tate, as well as "Bombshell". The role earned her some of the best reviews of her career, as well as her second Oscar nomination.
