Margot Robbie is keeping super busy. The 31-year-old blonde beauty was spotted on the set of her upcoming movie named Babylon, where she plays the character of Clara Bow alongside Brad Pitt and Tobey Maguire. In the new images surfacing on social media, the charming actress rocked an auburn red hairstyle for her transformation, which is a testament to the real-life 1920s actress Clara Bow.
What is the plot of Babylon?
The new film will be based on the Hollywood film industry in the late 1920s as it moves from silent films to ‘talkies’. Babylon’s ensemble cast also stars Samara Weaving, Olivia Wilde, Jean Smart, Max Minghella, Tobey Maguire, and Katherine Waterston, among others.
Filmmaker Damien Chazelle is at the helm of the blockbuster which is set for a limited release on December 25, 2021, and plans to go wide on January 7, 2022. What will be interesting to witness is Tobey Maguire joining Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie making his first on-screen film role since 2014 when he starred as Bobby Fischer in Pawn Sacrifice.
Margot Robbie’s outings this week
While Margot Robbie is busy with the shooting of Babylon, she is making sure to make time out of her busy shooting schedule. She steeped out this week to attend a private screening of the upcoming James Bond movie ‘No Time To Die.’
For the premiere, Margot showed off her chic style in a white ruffled cropped dress shirt with an asymmetrical hemline that bared a sliver of her midriff. Her dress shirt ensemble was paired with high-waisted brown linen wide-leg slacks. She pulled back her hair with a few strands left loose around her face, carried a black Chanel crossbody bag, and accessorized with gold hoop earrings and gold rings.
On Tuesday, Margot enjoyed a late-night dinner with her husband Tom Ackerley and Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek. For this outing, she rocked a black coat over a cropped top and high-waisted denim jeans during her dinner date with her husband of five years.
Wondering why Rami Malek joined Margot and her husband for dinner? Here’s why:
Apart from filming Babylon, Margot Robbie is also working on David O. Russell’s next film with Rami, which does not yet have a title. Christian Bale and Taylor Swift are also in the cast. While the plot details are being kept under wraps, the film is said to be based on an original idea from Russell. Matthew Budman of American Hustle fame will produce the movie.
The upcoming feature also stars Robert De Niro, Mike Myers, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Shannon, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Alessandro Nivola.
