DEADLINE – Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment has closed a two-year first-look deal with Warner Bros. Television. The company already has sold its first project under the pact, drama Shattered Glass to NBC.

Created and written by Kat Blasband Page, Shattered Glass, which is not related to the journalism-themed movie of the same name, is described as House of Cards meets Revenge. It is an empowering post-feminist revenge fantasy set in the world of Wall Street in which a trio of modern women come together to shatter their respective glass ceilings, taking no prisoners along the way.

Robbie and Brett Hedblom will executive produce for LuckyChap Entertainment alongside Patti Carr who will serve as showrunner. Page is co-executive producing.

“We are so excited by this new relationship with Warner Brothers Television,” LuckyChap Principles Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara said in a joint statement. “It has come after a great year for LuckyChap in which we have gradually been building a television slate overseen by our executive Brett Hedblom. We continue to strive to tell female stories in both Film and TV, and are immensely proud that our first two shows are created by, written by and starring women.”

The first two TV series projects for the company are Shattered Glass and recently sold half-hour comedy Dollface, created/written by Jordan Weiss and starring Kat Denning, which is set up at Hulu.

On the feature side, LuckyChap, which has a first-look deal with Warner Bros., produced the Golden Globe-nominated film I, Tonya and just wrapped production on the independent film Dreamland. The company is repped by Management 360, CAA and attorney Jeff Bernstein. (source)

LOS ANGELES TIMES – Nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya,” Margot Robbie talks to The Times about the movie and the female-driven films of 2017.

Where are you?
I’m here in L.A., I’m at home.

Were you up this morning to watch the nominations?
No, I was asleep. I woke up to do some prep before meetings this morning and my phone was blowing up, I had like 70 messages. And I thought, oh God, has the world ended? And then I opened them and saw everyone was saying congratulations.

What do you think that people are responding to in the movie?
I don’t know, it’s not a traditional biopic, the script and the film really break the mold when it comes to what you expect to see in a film. And I think people appreciate that, it’s more refreshing and engaging that way.

There’s been an overwhelming response. We were doing a Q&A last night at the Dome, at the ArcLight, and it was completely packed and it was wild to realize that so many people were interested in our film.

Considering your role as a producer, not just as an actor, that must feel even better.
Absolutely, when you produce a film you really devote years of your life to it. The idea of putting so much time and effort into something and no one even wanting to see it would be heartbreaking, so to have so many people not only want to see it but to respond so positively towards it is just the most incredible feeling.

Why Tonya? What do you think it is about her story right now that’s connecting with people?
There are so many elements of the story and the script and our film specifically. It’s a very entertaining film, people get swept up in the ride of it, but there is also a bigger conversation there, about class in America, and the disenfranchised and media and how we consume it without question. And the idea of what a woman is supposed to be, what we’re told we have to be to fit in.

There’s just so many bigger conversations, that even when we were making it we didn’t realize would be so topical at the time. That right now it just all seems to have come to a head, both when the film comes out and with society reaching this point this year. I think it’s incredibly relevant, terrifyingly relevant, in fact, but also entertaining, which is all we want to do as filmmakers, is entertain and challenge an audience. If you can do both in the one film, then I think that’s something really special.

People have talked about there being so many strong, female driven films this year, with “I, Tonya,” “Lady Bird,” “Wonder Woman,” “Molly’s Game” and others. What does that mean to you? What do you think when you see so many of these female-driven films doing well this year?
I’m thrilled, obviously. It’s funny, I’m not surprised, because I know so many brilliant women. Not just in this industry, I mean my friends back home are doing incredible things and just proving time and time again that women are so often underestimated and overlooked.

Everyone is really letting their voices be heard this year, and I think it’s fantastic. When you see Sofia Coppola win at Cannes, and you see ‘Wonder Woman” smash the box office, it’s so encouraging for everyone who is really trying to let their voice be heard.

“I, Tonya” is directed by a man, Craig Gillespie, and many people today are talking about the fact that there weren’t any women nominated for directing. So even when it seems things are advancing, you still bump up against some kind of ceiling.
There is still a long way to go and, of course, there’s always things I think we need to work on and do better as a society, as an industry, as individuals.

But we also really need to take the time to celebrate the wonderful achievements, and I think today is a day for celebrating.

It must be exciting for you to see Allison Janney nominated as well.
It’s incredible. From the second I read this character, I thought she is going to smash it, and she did. She really did something spectacular with this character and working with her has honestly been one of the highlights of my career. (source)

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES – It is an event that lives on in tabloid infamy: the tale of figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan and their battle to make it to the 1994 Winter Olympics. The new film “I, Tonya” reframes that story to fully spotlight Harding, transforming her from a media-made villain into someone far more human, fragile and tragic.

A title card at the beginning of the film declares that it is based on “irony free, wildly contradictory, totally true interviews” with Harding and her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. The portrait of Harding drawn by the film is one of sharp edges and hard landings, a woman with raw athletic abilities who couldn’t fit in with the refined image of the figure skating establishment.

Harding made some of her costumes herself and sometimes performed to music by ZZ Top. She also was the first American woman to land the extremely difficult and still-rare triple axel jump in competition. But the scandal that ensued after Kerrigan was attacked at the 1994 national figure skating championships left a long shadow over Harding’s reputation and legacy. Gillooly was implicated in planning the crime, and questions remain about Harding’s level of involvement.

Directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay by Steven Rogers, “I, Tonya” is a showcase for energetic, emotional performances by Margot Robbie as Harding, Sebastian Stan as Gillooly and Allison Janney as Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden.

Australian-born Robbie, best-known for her breakthrough role in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and more recently as Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad,” had never heard the Harding saga when the script first came through her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. (Robbie is also a producer on the film.) She was immediately struck by the rowdy energy of the storytelling and the complicated depiction of Harding.

“It was a character that scared me but also intrigued me,” said Robbie, who would go on to some five months of figure skating training for the part.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – The 16th-century rivalry between the Queen of Scots and the Virgin Queen was personal — though it didn’t have to be. “They were both, in their own ways, making huge sacrifices to try to operate in this male-dominated world,” explains Josie Rourke, a theater director whose feature debut, Mary, Queen of Scots, examines the rift between the young cousins. “It’s not one against the other. It’s both of them against a particular environment that pitted them against each other.”

Penned by House of Cards creator Beau Willimon and based on a biography by historian John Guy, the film explores the rulers’ lives after Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) returns to Scotland a widowed former queen of France. Her arrival threatens the English throne — then held by Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie) — and ushers in a fraught political period during which the dueling crowns are surrounded by scheming counselors. “Everyone manipulated their relationship,” Robbie says. “It’s complicated, it’s tragic, and it’s bizarre. The only other person in the world who could understand the position they were in was each other.”

On set, Robbie got a taste of that solitude. Playing the smallpox-scarred monarch meant layers of prosthetics and makeup so thick she felt “inhuman,” which eventually led the crew to avoid her gaze. “It was nothing intentional,” she recalls, “but I could see that it was uncomfortable for them, and the less they looked at me, the more isolated I felt.” “Queen for a day” suddenly sounds less appealing.

Mary, Queen of Scots arrives in theaters Nov. 2, 2018. (source)

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Don’t be surprised if the #29Rooms hashtag starts popping up all over your Instagram feed, because Refinery29’s highly anticipated interactive art installation, 29Rooms, has officially landed in downtown L.A.’s Arts District.

Now open until Dec. 10 (and again from Dec. 14 to Dec. 17), the “Turn It Into Art”-themed event features Instagram-ready spaces, with Janelle Monae, Margot Robbie, Demi Lovato, Emma Roberts and Jill Soloway among the star collaborators.

[…]

Robbie and Lovato were also on the scene to present their installations. Lovato’s “Power Parlor” allows guests to get temporary ink inspired by the singer’s own empowering tattoos, while Robbie’s “Trophy Room” is inspired by her recent turn as Tonya Harding in Oscar contender I, Tonya and decorated with, you guessed it, trophies that feature engraved gold plates with the skater’s bold messages such as “Prove Them All Wrong” and “I’m a Big Story on My Own.”

“We think it’s an interesting cultural space with the convergence of Hollywood, tech, art and music,” Refinery29 co-founder and executive creative director Piera Gelardi tells THR of bringing the spectacle to L.A. for the first time after hosting it in New York for the past two years. “People feel so joyful going through it, and they come out feeling like dreaming bigger.” (source)

In the gallery you can find several photos of Margot attending the event. She looked great wearing Yves Saint Laurent Full Look. More photos will be added in the next few days so be sure to keep our twitter @MargotRobbieCom checked!
