Margot Robbie is onto her next project, co-starring opposite Christian Bale in a new David O. Russell film.

Apart from the casting, not much is known about the unnamed film, only that Russell will direct from his own script. This will be Russell’s first film since 2015’s Joy.

Matthew Budman, an executive producer on Joy and American Hustle, will be producing.

2019 was a busy year for Robbie: she played Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and starred in Bombshell. These roles saw her receiving some of the best reviews of her career to date and led to her second Oscar nomination.

Most recently, Robbie starred as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey, and she just finished production for The Suicide Squad, where she reprises her role as Quinn.
