Warner Bros., Margot Robbie, and producer Denise Di Novi have picked up movie rights to Gin Phillips’ thriller novel “Beautiful Things.”

Robbie will produce along with Di Novi and Alison Greenspan, but it’s uncertain if Robbie will star. The deal comes two months after Robbie signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. to develop and produce feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment production company.

Robbie has starred in three Warner Bros. films — “Focus,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Suicide Squad.” She’s starring in a “Suicide Squad” spinoff as her character Harley Quinn and will executive produce, and will also star in an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s “Queen of the Air.”

Robbie broke out in Martin Scorsese’s “Wolf of Wall Street” and is developing a Tonya Harding biopic and an adaptation of Matt Ruff’s “Bad Monkeys” with Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark for Universal Pictures.

Phillips’ book, sold last month to Viking, centers on a mother and her son trapped in a zoo with a gunman on the loose.

Di Novi is also based at Warner Bros. and produced “The Best of Me” and “You’re Not You” for the studio. Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360, and attorney Jeff Bernstein of Jackoway Tyerman.
