According to Collider The Wolf Of Wall Street actress has signed on to play Harley Quinn in the upcoming live action Suicide Squad movie.
Robbie has been mentioned as the front-runner for the role but, at this point take this news with a pinch of salt.
Here’s the excerpt:
A few weeks ago, we reported that Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was close to signing on to Suicide Squad, a film director David Ayer describes as “The Dirty Dozen with supervillains.” Hot on the heels of learning that Jared Leto is being courted to play The Joker, we have now learned from sources that Robbie will play Harley Quinn. For those who don’t know the character, she was introduced in Batman: The Animated Series as the Joker’s girlfriend/henchwoman, and has gone on to become a popular rogue/anti-hero in her own right. This will be the first time the character has ever been portrayed on the big screen.
