STUFFI, Tonya star Margot Robbie has confirmed she will play late actor Sharon Tate in the upcoming film by Quentin Tarantino.

Speaking to Stuff in Sydney ahead of the Peter Rabbit premiere on Saturday, Robbie confirmed she would play the actress who was brutally killed by Charles Manson’s associates on August 9, 1969.

Robbie said she was very excited to star in Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

“So yes, I will need to start researching,” she said.

Tarantino’s film has so far been shrouded in secrecy but Variety has confirmed that Leonardo DiCaprio will also star in the film.

Tate and four friends were found dead August 9, 1969. Manson ordered his followers to visit the house where the pregnant Tate was staying in Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles with Steve Parent, Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, and Abigail Folger.

Tate was eight and a half months pregnant with director Roman Polanski’s baby. (source)

DEADLINE – Bold Films will finance the Margot Robbie project Dangerous Odds in which the I, Tonya Best Actress Oscar nominee will play cleaning lady-turned-illegal sports betting empire boss Marisa Lankester. The project was picked up in turnaround from Warner Bros., where Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment has a first-look deal.

The project is based on Lankester’s memoir Dangerous Odds: My Secret Life Inside an Illegal Billion-Dollar Sports Betting Operation, which originally was won by Warner Bros. in a January 2015 auction as exclusively reported by Deadline. LuckyChap and Entertainment 360, the production arm of Management 360, will produce with Bold, and the feature is based on a script by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton).

Lankester’s rags-to-riches tale is set during the 1980s as she rises through the ranks and takes on a pivotal role establishing the first offshore gambling operation, growing it into a billion-dollar-a-year criminal empire.

Said Bold Films Chairman Michel Litvak: “We are incredibly excited to work with Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie at this momentous time in her career. She will do an amazing job bring this thrilling true story and fascinating character to life.”

Added Bold Films CEO Gary Michael Walters, who is serving as EP with Svetlana Metkina: “It’s a great character; it’s a female Scarface in the rise of this great criminal operation under the leadership of a very savvy woman. Margot Robbie is an extraordinary actress and couldn’t be hotter right now. She is so versatile and strong with comedy, drama and action — she really is the full package, and that’s rare. She’s built up a great production company with LuckyChap.”

These type of independent films in the budget range of $25M-$35M are Bold’s sweet spot, and there’s a strong appetite for such fare in the current indie marketplace. Robbie’s film canon has reaped close to $1.9 billion at the global box office.

“We are building LuckyChap off of a passion to tell female-driven stories that feel original, unique and rebellious in nature,” LuckyChap Entertainment said. “We found all of this in Marisa’s story and couldn’t be more excited to partner with Bold Films and 360 to bring Dangerous Odds to the screen.” (source)

THE ENVELOPE“I, Tonya,” the Craig Gillespie-directed biopic about Tonya Harding, the figure skater banned from competition for life for her connection to a 1994 attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan, has brought its stars — Margot Robbie, who plays an unsinkable Harding, and Allison Janney, as her sharp-tongued mother, LaVona — Oscar nominations, critical acclaim and, not surprisingly, a newfound love for the Winter Olympics. “We’re watching men’s half-pipe,” reports Robbie, jet-lagged and talking via speakerphone while sitting alongside Janney in a London hotel room. “We’re just mesmerized.”

The pair were in town to attend the BAFTAs, where they were both nominees. Before heading off to a party, they took time out to talk about the film’s more nuanced examination of Harding’s life (domestic violence, the skating world’s contempt for her working-class roots), Janney’s annoying parakeet costar and the reaction Robbie, an “I, Tonya” producer, had during her initial reading of Steven Rogers’ script.

“It’s so easy to dismiss these characters and their feelings. But by the end of it, I was devastated, angry and frustrated for them. I’d laugh out loud at something, then immediately feel disgusted with myself that I found it funny,” says Robbie. “To be able to let those feelings creep up on you, instead of being told to feel them? That’s a real art form.”

PEOPLE – Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.

Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.

“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”

Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.

“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”

On Monday night (February 05) Margot and her Peter Rabbit co-star Domhnall Gleeson were guests at The Late Late Show with James Corden, promoting the movie which is also starring James Corden himself. Some videos from the interviews can be watched below:

A behind the scenes look at the making of “Peter Rabbit” shows how James Corden, the voice of the animated lead character, went unnecessarily method for the role, undergoing an operation and taking on an insane diet that really scared off his co-stars.

Fellow co-stars James Corden and Margot Robbie ask Domhnall Gleeson about heading to Australia to shoot “Peter Rabbit” — an experience James and Margot didn’t have only voicing characters — and learned Domhnall had a fierce battle against the sun and heat.

James asks Margot Robbie about all the accolades for making and starring in “I, Tonya” and learns Margot brought Tonya Harding to the Golden Globes and couldn’t have been more comfortable among Hollywood’s biggest names.
