Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE - Mar­got Rob­bie

Mar­got Rob­bie and her hus­band Tom Ack­er­ley will pro­duce new sci-fi thriller 'Aug­mented'. The 27year-old ac­tress' com­pany, Lucky Chap En­ter­tain­ment, will co-pro­duce the Warner Bros pic­ture along­side Di Novi Pic­tures, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Mark Tow­nend's script for 'Aug­mented' ap­peared on the 2016 Black List and was sold for a six-fig­ure sum. No plot de­tails have been re­vealed yet from the highly soughtafter script. Mean­while, last year, Mar­got signed a "first­look" deal with Warner Bros and one of her first projects is 'Gotham City Sirens', which she will star in and ex­ec­u­tive pro­duce. Mar­got will reprise her role as sexy, psy­chotic su­pervil­lain Har­ley Quinn in the new movie, which will fo­cus on the women from the DC comics. She is said to have fallen in love with the char­ac­ter af­ter por­tray­ing her in 'Sui­cide Squad'. It's not known whether Quinn's dan­ger­ous lover The Joker (Jared Leto) will star in the spin-off or Bat­man (Ben Af­fleck), who is tra­di­tion­ally the su­per­hero try­ing to stop the pair's crim­i­nal plans. But Rob­bie has pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted she would love Quinn and The Joker to re­unite. She said: "I'm try­ing to make that hap­pen. Not for any­thing specif­i­cally, but just some­thing - there's so much more to do." In the re­cent comic se­ries, which the movie will be based on, Cat­woman and Poi­son Ivy fea­tured along­side Har­ley and could ap­pear in the up­com­ing film.
