Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad

Warner Bros. Pictures



Margot Robbie is working with Warner Bros. again. The "Suicide Squad" star is reportedly taking on a "gritty" project.

Robbie will produce an upcoming film adaptation of the book "Barbed Wire Heart," THR reports. The project is based on Tess Sharpe's 2018 novel, which centers on the daughter of a dangerous meth dealer who has to deal with threats from rival families while trying to keep a women's shelter running. Carly Wray ("Westworld; "Mad Men") is writing the script.

If you're hoping to see Robbie in the film, be warned that her involvement is expected to be limited to the creative side. She and her colleague Tom Ackerley are producing for Warner Bros. through her banner, Luckychap, alongside Rideback's Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich. Meanwhile, Josey McNamara is executive producing, and Nick Reynolds is overseeing for Rideback.

Robbie remains busy. She's had numerous notable film roles over the last few years, including in "Mary Queen of Scots," which arrives in U.S. theaters in December. She's also produced multiple projects such as 2017's "I, Tonya" and 2018's "Terminal," among others.
