Another headlining role, for the in demand actress.
Margot Robbie is in negotiations to play Queen Elizabeth in Focus and Working Title’s Mary Queen of Scots, opposite Saoirse Ronan.
The movie is based on the true story of Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, only to find herself condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.
The film has yet to be given the ok, but sources say things are headed in the right direction. If the ok is given, the film would likely go sometime later this year.
Robbie has seen some stellar roles come her way of late, including Suicide Squad and Wolf of Wall Street. The endeavour could even have awards season potential given Focus’ track record of pushing Oscar campaigns for its prestige film.
