Margot Robbie to Star in Noir Thriller ‘Terminal’

Margot Robbie will star in Vaughn Stein’s noir thriller “Terminal,” which is currently in pre-production.

David Barron of Beagle Pug Films and Molly Hassell (“The Trust”) will produce alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Robbie under their production company LuckyChap Entertainment. Stein is also writing the screenplay with Highland Film Group financing and introducing the project to international buyers at the Berlin Film Festival.

CAA is representing the U.S. rights. CAA arranged financing and negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers.

The story centers on a borderline suicide mission for a pair of hitmen working for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Robbie will play a dynamic woman named Annie, who may be more involved than the hitmen originally suspected.

Robbie starred in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and is seen briefly in “The Big Short” as herself. She will next appear in Paramount’s “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” as a foreign correspondent opposite Tina Fey, and is also starring in Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad.”

Highland Film Group recently wrapped principal photography on Lin Oeding’s thriller “Braven,” starring Jason Momoa. Their slate includes Kevin Connolly’s “Gotti,” starring John Travolta; Elliott Lester’s “478,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Blink,” starring Jamie Foxx; Steven C. Miller’s “Marauders” starring Bruce Willis; the Brewer brothers’ “The Trust,” starring Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood; and Osgood Perkins’ “February,” starring Emma Roberts.

Robbie is repped by CAA and Management 360.
