Genetically blessed Neighbours veteran and Australia’s newest celebrity we will know doubt protectively claim with zeal Margot Robbie is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, testing for the role of a young Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot—the franchise whose most recognisable catch phrase proves to be searingly telling of its longevity, propensity for coming back, etc.
Robbie, who pulled the classic Australian actor’s move and scored roles in American productions (Pan Am, the upcoming Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo Di Caprio) in order to get famous famous, not just Neighbours famous, is reportedly set to test for the role in the anticipated fifth instalment of The Terminator, vying for the spot alongside mother of dragons Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson (United States of Tara).
Naturally, The Terminator wouldn’t be nearly as ridiculous charming without Arnie (cc: Terminator 4); it goes without saying that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for the reboot; John Connor’s role is still open, though Tom Hardy is considered a likely, and obvious, contender.
The refreshed franchise has a July 1, 2015 release date and has been signed as a trilogy, meaning whomever lands the role of Sarah Connor will be in for some serious seasons of Hollywood summer blockbuster madness. Trump Khalessi and bring it home, Margot, you could soon be getting all amongst this.
The Rumour mill is running again, linking up Margot Robbie with another A-Lister co-star. As usual media blow it way out of proportion, I’m sure they were just having fun after a long day onset! – Mel
Sources told Us Weekly that reports of trouble in Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s marriage are false. While one source admitted that Will Smith goofed around in the photo booth with Margot Robbie, the insider insisted that this was just harmless fun. The same person also claimed that Will and Jada’s relationship is “great.”
“That was a photo booth on set that the producers got for everyone,” the source said. “It was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures. They were just goofing around. Will is just like that. There’s nothing more to it.”
A second source confirmed: “[Will and Margot are] not hooking up.”
Rumors of a divorce between Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith are heating up again. The latest unconfirmed report claims that the actor was flirting with his Focus co-star, Margot Robbie.
Sorry I have been slack as of late, I have been quite busy in the real world! But there has been a second trailer for ‘The Wolf od Wall Street’, which is going to make Margot a household name in the US! About time! Plus Magazine scans from “Vanity Fair” & Australias “Vogue” edition, stay tuned.x
MARGOT Robbie says it was “inevitable” that she would be romantically linked to Leonardo DiCaprio after starring as his wife in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
Gossip mags were quick to report the pair were an item when the former Neighbours actress was the centre of attention at DiCaprio’s birthday bash last year.
But in an interview with Vogue Australia, Robbie says she and Leo were nothing more than co-stars.
“No,” she told the mag as she laughed about the reports.
“We’re friends, of course, but those rumours were inevitable – there’s no truth to them. Everyone on the set became good friends, we’d all hang out on weekends.”
Robbie said as soon as the news broke, her friends back home were ecstatic at the thought of her hooking up with the 38-year-old bachelor.
“I just woke up to 45 missed calls on my phone and all my girlfriends saying: ‘I can’t believe you didn’t tell me!’ I’d call them back and say: ‘Are you kidding me? Do you not think you would be the first people I would tell if this was happening?’ I also had to call my grandparents and assure them that there was absolutely no truth to the rumours, and that took a little more convincing.”
She says working with DiCaprio “exceeded her expectations”.
“There are a handful of actors who are known in the industry as being extremely lovely down-to-earth people despite their huge profiles, and Leo’s one of them.
“He was so professional and wonderful to work with. I’m so happy that I can honestly say that, because he really is. We had a great working relationship, we could improvise endlessly and I could go as far as I could possibly go with a scene and know that he was going to take it a step further, there was no limit, there were no boundaries whatsoever. I think we got some really great material, because we were just so comfortable.”
The Wolf of Wall Street is in cinemas December 12.
So remember way back when names like “Girls” star Allison Williams and “Fruitvale Station” lead Michael B. Jordan were being tossed around as possible contenders for “Fantastic Four”? Well, that list just got a helluva lot longer.
Kit Harrington, Saoirse Ronan, Jack O’Connell, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie are all testing for various roles, according to Variety. Ronan, Mara and Robbie (she’ll be making a big splash opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf Of Wall Street”) are up to play Sue Storm, while Harrington, O’Connell and Teller are in the mix for Reed Richards (and it should be noted Teller was already mentioned a couple months ago). And apparently, Jordan is still the lone contender for Johnny Storm.
So what can we make of all this? Fox wants a young cast, with this casting kinda feeling like “Fantastic Four: First Class.” That said, it’s a pretty solid crop of young thesps, so we can’t really complain about it either, but we’re sure you have thoughts on this, so sound off below.
“Fanastic Four” is currently getting a new script via Simon Kinberg and will arrive with Josh Trank directing on March 6, 2015.
UPDATE: Our friends at Bleeding Cool report new “Cinderella” Lily James is also in the mix, and Stone is unlikely to take the role despite repeated overtures from the studio.
Emma Stone and Margot Robbie are the newest names linked to Warner Bros’ back-on “Tarzan” reboot starring Alexander Skarsgard, according to Variety. Christoph Waltz is now being eyed for the film’s villain role as well.
The film is still awaiting a greenlight, though producers and director David Yates are expecting it to come in November with a planned summer start date, and are putting together the cast to present to the studio. Jessica Chastain had previously been sought for the Jane role but she’s probably a little too busy these days, so Robbie and Stone are reportedly among the actresses now being considered. No negotiations have begun with any of them yet, however. The new version of the Edward Rice Burroughs’ tale is set years after Tarzan has reintegrated back into human society. One day, “he’s asked by Queen Victoria to investigate the goings-on in the Congo. Tarzan teams with an ex-mercenary named George Washington Williams to save the Congo from a fierce warlord who controls a massive diamond mine.” Samuel L. Jackson was previously reportedly being eyed for the role of the mercenary, though there’s no mention of him in the new report.
Warner Bros is clearly high on rising star Robbie, the Aussie newcomer who headlined shortlived ABC series “Pan Am.” Not only does she play the female lead in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” opposite Leonardo Dicaprio, they also recently cast her for the female lead role in grifter rom com “Focus” opposite Will Smith. Stone is always in demand and lands high profile roles left and right. After wrapping a reprisal of Gwen Stacy in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” she headed off to France to film Woody Allen’s latest film opposite Colin Firth, and is next scheduled to do Cameron Crowe’s “Deep Tiki” opposite Bradley Cooper.
Margot Robbie says working with Leonardo DiCaprio was “the most satisfying experience”.
The Australian actress has been romantically linked to the A-list hunk after playing his love interest in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
The film is due for release later this year and Leonardo was a source of inspiration as well as support for her on set.
“Working with him was, as an actor, the most satisfying experience I’ve had in my entire career so far,” Margot admitted to the September edition of US Vanity Fair.
Margot moved to America in order to pursue her acting career. The 23-year-old is fast solidifying herself as a Hollywood up-and-comer and also has a role in Richard Curtis’ romantic comedy About Time. Margot joked her family don’t quite believe her success yet.
“I’m still trying to convince [my family] that this is actually a career and not just a hobby, and that it’s what I plan on doing with my life. They’re slowly coming around to it,” she laughed.
“I love New York so much and living in Los Angeles is a whole different vibe and pace. Being back in the city is such a treat for me.”
In December it was reported that Margot’s rumoured flirtation with Leonardo was heating up. The 38-year-old heartthrob was allegedly seen entering Margot’s building in New York City and not leaving until the following morning.
“He stayed overnight,” a source told New York Post.
Rumours Leonardo had fallen for the glamorous blonde first surfaced when they were seen at luxury hotel the Wynn Las Vegas in November.
“There looks to be some strong chemistry between Leo and his leading lady. They spent a lot of time at the party together,” a source said at the time.
Australian actress Margot Robbie says she is determined to prove to her relatives that she can make it big in Hollywood after landing a role opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.
The 23-year-old actress from the Gold Coast is best known for her role as Donna Freedman on Neighbours, which earned her two Logie Award nominations.
But now the actress is making a name for herself in Hollywood. She is about to appear in Richard Curtis’s romantic comedy About Time and then as DiCaprio’s wife in upcoming Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street.
Robbie admits her family have been slow to accept the scale of her success.
“I’m still trying to convince (my family) that this is actually a career and not just a hobby, and that it’s what I plan on doing with my life,” she said.
“They’re slowly coming around to it.”
The Wolf of Wall Street will release in Australia on December 12. About Time will release on October 17.
With a role starring across from Leonardo Di Caprio in upcoming Scorsese blockbuster The Wolf of Wall Street, its fair to say Margot Robbie’s star is rising.
The Australian actress, arrived at the BBC in Salford quays to film the early morning BBC Breakfast show.
And despite the early morning wake up call, Margot looked radiant and ready to face the British viewing public.
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who directed “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” are directing the heist project.
Margot Robbie, the Australian actress who starred in ABC’s Pan Am, has been chosen to star opposite Will Smith in Focus, a Warner Bros. heist project being directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, THR has confirmed.
Focus is a two-hander about a con man who becomes romantically involved with a novice. He is then thrown off his game when the former flame shows up just as he’s staging an elaborate con in Buenos Aires.
She will next be seen opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
