Margot Robbie, star in the highly anticipated “Suicide Squad” alongside Will Smith and Viola Davis, is adding yet another film to her queue: new noir thriller, “Terminal.”
The news comes by way of the Berlin Film Festival, which started Thursday in Berlin. Robbie will play the role of Annie in the film, which is set to be directed by Vaughn Stein (assistant director on films such as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and “World War Z”), who also wrote the screenplay.
The Hollywood Reporter, who first broke the news, describes the film as one that “follows two hit-men as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way the unlikely pair find a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) may be more involved than they had originally suspected.”
IMDB describes the film simply with the tagline, “Three people can keep a secret – if two of them are dead.”
Highland Film Group’s Arianne Frasier and Delphine Perrier (who are financing the project) said of the new film, “With an ambitious slate already lined up for Berlin, Highland is delighted to be able to kick off this year’s market with another title of such strong caliber.” The statement continued, “Crafted with incredibly in-demand and relevant talent in front and behind the camera, the project perfectly showcases the quality of genre-led movies we’re committed to supporting.”
Robbie, who had a cameo in the Oscar-nominated film “The Big Short,” will next be seen in Paramount’s “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” (March 4), as well as Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” on August 5.
No official release date for “Terminal” has been announced, but IMDB lists the film’s release date as sometime this year.
