Margot Robbie Queen Elizabeth

Margot Robbie ("Suicide Squad") is in talks to star as Queen Elizabeth in the upcoming historical drama "Mary Queen of Scots". The film will be directed by Josie Rourke ("The Vote") and it will focus on Mary Stuart's (Saoirse Ronan) attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, only to find herself condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.

The screenplay is written by Michael Hirst ("Elizabeth", "The Tudors") and Penelope Skinner ("How I Live Now"). Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy") from Working Title will serve as producers. The project has not been greenlit, but according to sources, it's only a formality at this point, particularly with a big name like Robbie attached.

Robbie is also starring in the biopic "Goodbye Christopher Robin" alongside Kelly Macdonald and Domhnall Gleeson, and has recently finished filming another biopic, the Tonya Harding film "I, Tonya".

guerrilla-2017-miniseries-trailers-clips-featurette-images-and-poster

Written and directed by John Ridley ("12 Years a Slave") and Sam Miller ("No Good Deed"), the six-episode miniseries "Guerrilla" is set in 1970s London during one of the most explosive times in U.K. history, and it follows a group of activists who set out to free a political prisoner and form a resistance movement.

The cast features Idris Elba, Freida Pinto, Babou Ceesay, Wunmi Mosaku, Giorgio Spiegefeld, Patrick Gibson and Zawe Ashton. The series has attracted some controversy due to the fact that the filmmakers allegedly downplayed the historical role of black female activists and cast and Indian actress (Pinto) in the lead role, accusations that have been rejected by early British Black Panther members Farrukh Dhondy and Neil Kenlock. Dhondy was a consultant on the show along with Darcus Howe.
