Margot Robbie in Talks to Co-Star With Tina Fey in ‘Taliban Shuffle’

Margot Robbie looks ready to reteam with her “Focus” directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa: The “The Wolf of Wall Street” actress is in talks to join Tina Fey in their next pic, “The Taliban Shuffle.”

Paramount is distributing with Fey and Lorne Michaels producing.

The film is based on Kim Barker’s memoir, “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan,” which recounts her years as a journalist in Afghanistan and Pakistan after arriving in the region in 2002.

Robert Carlock of “30 Rock” wrote the adaptation.

Robbie is about to wrap production on Warner Bros. “Tarzan” and was weighing several offers, including this one. She also has an offer for “Suicide Squad” at Warner Bros., but scheduling must be worked out with “Taliban Shuffle” before she can commit.

Robbie, who is repped by CAA and Management 360, will star opposite Will Smith in “Focus,” which bows Feb. 27. The initial talks for “Taliban Shuffle” were first reported by Schmoes Know.
