Margot Robbie and Colin Farrell have been cast in ‘A Big Bold Beautiful Journey’.
The pair are attached to star in the movie that is being directed by the South Korean filmmaker Kogonada from an original script by ‘The Menu’ screenwriter Seth Reiss.
Plot details for the film are being kept under wraps, but the picture is described as an imaginative tale of two strangers and the unbelievable journey that connects the duo.
Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas and Ryan Friedkin are producing the film for Imperative Entertainment alongside Reiss and Youree Henley. Kogonada is an executive producer with Ilene Feldman and Ori Eisen.
The movie is shooting this spring in California.
Margot heads into the project off the back of the success of last year’s smash-hit blockbuster ‘Barbie’ – in which she played the lead role.
However, the Australian actress and director Greta Gerwig were controversially snubbed in the Oscar nominations although Margot insisted that she was “not sad” about the lack of recognition.
Margot, 33, said at a SAG screening of ‘Barbie’: “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed. Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director, because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is. But it’s been an incredible year for all the films.”
‘Barbie’ has pulled in over $1 billion at the box office since being released last July and Margot speculated that the reaction to the flick has become “bigger” than the movie industry itself.
The ‘Babylon’ star said: “I just suspect it’s bigger than us. It’s bigger than this movie, it’s bigger than our industry.”
