While he usually works with a regular recurring ensemble of actors (several of whom will indeed pop again), Wes Anderson is always happy to find new collaborators. Following news that Tom Hanks will make his Andersonian debut (albeit in what sounds like a small role) is word that Margot Robbie will also join the team.

Anderson is naturally keeping most of the details close to his suited chest for now, though the film will start shooting in Spain later this month. Repeat performers Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Adrien Brody are all aboard.

Robbie, is on screens now as Harley Quinn in *The Suicide Squad and is working on Damien Chazelle’s Babylon. She’s also shot David O. Russell’s latest, untitled film, so she’s making a point of starring for singular directors. As for Anderson, his most recent film, The French Dispatch*, arrives in UK cinemas on 22 October.

The DC Extended Universe has established itself over the past few years, and there are a number of characters that have already appeared multiple times on the big screen. Chief among them is Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, who will return for her third appearance in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Ahead of its release, Robbie described the physical toll filming as Harley takes on her.

Margot Robbie’s tenure as Harley Quinn is interesting because each appearance was helmed by another filmmaker entirely. As such, she’s lead the character through a variety of adventures– although The Suicide Squad looks particularly massive in scale. Robbie explained how the explosive action of James Gunn’s DC debut took a toll on her, saying:

There are explosions and guns firing. And even though they’re blanks, your body starts reacting as if it’s real, your adrenaline’s through the roof.

That makes a great deal of sense. Because while Margot Robbie knows she’s not actually in a gunfight, her nervous system is reacting in another way entirely. So on top of rehearsing and shooting action sequences, there’s also a unique reaction that she physically has to the job.

Margot Robbie’s comments to THR help to show what it’s really like working on major blockbusters in the DC Extended Universe. Audiences see the finished product complete with editing and visual effects, but it’s an entirely different experience to make massive action sequences happen. And for The Suicide Squad, that meant putting the Oscar-nominated actress through a war zone, with Harley shooting off a rocket launcher in the process.

The Suicide Squad will be arriving on HBO Max for a limited time as it hits theaters. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

From the limited trailers for The Suicide Squad, it certainly looks like Harley Quinn is involved in a ton of crazy stunts and action sequences. We see her using heavy artillery, taking out enemies with a spear, and even facing a kaiju. In the same interview, Margot Robbie went on to explain why it’s sometimes hard to unwind after shooting, saying:

Because, well, my body thinks it’s just been in a war zone.

While shooting might have been grueling at times, it certainly seems like it’ll be worth it when The Suicide Squad arrives in theaters and homes. Fans are eager to see Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn put his sensibilities into the DCEU. And with the movie’s R-rating and stellar cast of names, there’s no telling what twists and turns are coming our way.

It should be interesting to see where Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn pops up in the DCEU next after The Suicide Squad. Clearly Warner Bros. is invested in the character, as are moviegoing audiences. Robbie herself has expressed interest in bringing Poison Ivy into the mix, while some are holding out hope for a Birds of Prey sequel.

Not only is the Barbie movie happening, but the director-star pairing of Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie couldn’t be better.

We first reported in late 2016 that a big-screen adaptation of Mattel’s classic toy (now known for her outdated and unrealistic beauty ideal) was in the works. Sony had already commissioned and chucked different concepts, including one crafted by Diablo Cody and another meant to star Amy Schumer.

Then in July 2019, news broke that filmmaking partners Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, who sometimes, but not always, collaborate, had been hired to try to beat a story out of the world-famous IP that’s beloved by some and scorned by others for the body image havoc it has caused.

At that point, the studio was setting up the film as a vehicle for Robbie.

Now, there’s not only movement on the project but an announcement that Gerwig will direct. Speaking with British Vogue, Robbie said she was aware a Barbie film “comes with a lot of nostalgic baggage” and that some are eager to criticize, but hearing that Gerwig is writing and directing usually gets people to clam up. (Variety independently confirmed that Gerwig is set for the director’s chair on this one.)

No word yet on who will be playing Ken. (Editor’s note: Please be Adam Driver.)

Gerwig previously directed Little Women and Lady Bird and co-directed the aughts time capsule Nights and Weekends with Joe Swanberg. Gerwig and Baumbach, who are domestic partners of roughly a decade and parents of a young son, have collaborated on two other screenplays, Frances Ha and Mistress America. Gerwig also co-starred in Greenberg, which was co-written by Baumbach and his then-wife Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Before the plastic commodity comes to life, the couple will need to complete filming White Noise, in which Gerwig stars opposite Driver. Baumbach is adapting the lit major fave written by Don DeLillo in 1985, giving rise to expressions such as SIMUVAC and The Airborne Toxic Event.

“It’s probably my favourite four minutes of film I’ve ever shot before.”

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has praised star Margot Robbie, calling one action scene “probably [his] favourite four minutes of film [he’s] ever shot before”.

Robbie is due to reprise her character of Harley Quinn from 2016’s Suicide Squad and standalone movie Birds of Prey in the new DC flick, Gunn admitting that he was left vastly impressed by her huge variety of skills.

“She can do anything,” the director told the Associated Press. “Or I thought she could do anything. And then one day she had to sing and I said, ‘OK, well you can do everything but one thing.’

“But she’s such a great actress. She embodies the character. She’s able to do the comedy. She’s able to do the drama. And physically, she is a pure athlete and is able to do these stunts in such a graceful, magnificent, beautiful way.”

Gunn added: “And so I wrote the biggest action scene I’ve ever done all around (Robbie’s character) Harley, and it was so fun to create just on every level from working with the stunt guys all the way through to working with her.

“It’s probably my favourite four minutes of film I’ve ever shot before.”

High praise indeed.

While we can’t wait to see Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad, it seems it will be a while until we get another Birds of Prey movie, as Robbie recently gave fans an update on a potential sequel to the 2020 movie.

“I don’t know if that is on the horizon anytime soon,” she told Den of Geek. “I don’t think it’s a no. But no, there’s no sequel in the works that I’m aware of at this stage.”

“I don’t know if that is on the horizon anytime soon.”

Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie has given fans a disappointing update on a potential sequel, admitting it won’t be happening anytime soon.

The Harley Quinn-centric movie was critically well-received when it was released last year and it took in over $200 million at the box office too.

However, speaking in a new interview, Robbie admitted that there is sadly nothing in the pipeline when it comes to a follow-up as things currently stand.

“I don’t know if that is on the horizon anytime soon,” she told Den of Geek.

Yet, her words weren’t entirely without hope, the star adding: “I don’t think it’s a no. But no, there’s no sequel in the works that I’m aware of at this stage.”

One star that would clearly be on board for a sequel is Jurnee Smollett, who played Black Canary in the original.

Speaking last year, the actress told Entertainment Weekly: “It’s no secret how much I loved playing Black Canary, and [I was] so honoured to take on that mantle. I would absolutely do it again if given a chance.”

While it may be a while until we see Harley Quinn again in a Birds of Prey setting, fans will at least be able to reunite with the DC fave in The Suicide Squad, which is due out this summer.

Speaking recently about how her character is different this time around, Robbie explained to Total Film: “[In terms of] how she’s changed, it’s just always interesting to explore what characteristics different directors gravitate towards from the character.

“The common denominator is the source material, which is what I always built the character off anyway. Then she evolves in different ways under different people’s direction.”
