Margot Robbie to Portray a Bank Robber in Thriller 'Dreamland'

Robbie will play a fugitive who is chased by a 15-year-old boy who wants to 'collect the bounty of her head.'

AceShowbiz - After stealing viewers' attention with her portrayal as Harley Quinn in "Suicide Squad", %cMargot Robbie% will once again play an anti-hero role. The Australian actress is set to star in thriller "Dreamland (2017)" and will play a bank robber.

Robbie will also produce the movie under her Lucky Chap Entertainment banner along with Lucky Chap's Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Automatik's Rian Cahill are also set to produce. Meanwhile, Sundance winner Miles Joris-Peyrafitte will serve as the director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Dreamland", which is written by Nicolaas Zwart and on the 2015 Black List, is set amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl in 1930s. It follows the quest of a 15-year-old boy who attempts "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 seemingly have busy years ahead. The 26-year-old actress will reprise her role as anti-heroine Harley Quinn in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" spin-off "Gotham City Sirens". Last month, Robbie was tapped to play Queen Elizabeth I in "Mary Queen of Scots". She will also star in "Goodbye Christopher Robin" as the wife of author A.A. Milne. In addition, Robbie will portray %cTonya Harding% in biopic "I, Tonya".

Robbie's other upcoming movies include "Robin Hood" spin-off "Marian", crime thriller "Terminal" and live-action/CGI hybrid film "Peter Rabbit".
