Margot Robbie Set to Play a Fugitive in 1930s-Set Thriller DREAMLAND
Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie is set to star in an upcoming period thriller called Dreamland. She is also set to executive produce the film, which tells a story set in the 1930s, amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl.
According to THR, the movie follows "a 15-year-old boy on his quest to capture a fugitive bank robber and collect the bounty on her head, all with the goal of saving his family farm from foreclosure. Against all odds, he beats out the FBI and the local police to find her, only to discover that she's far more than what the authorities claim her to be." Robbie will be playing the bank robber.
Sounds like a great story! The movie will be directed by indie filmmaker Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, who directed the Sundance Film As You Are. The script for the film comes from Nicolaas Zwart and it was on the 2015 Black List of best-unproduced screenplays.
This sounds like a perfect project for Robbie to take on. I'm a big fan of the actress and the films she's made. I'm looking forward to seeing how this next project of hers turns out.
