Margot Robbie set to join Christian Bale in David O. Russell film”

Less than 24 hours ago news broke that David O. Russell's upcoming film had cast Margot Robbie (Birds of Prey), and now The Hollywood Reporter has brought word that Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) has also joined the roster that began with Christian Bale. With Bale and Robbie's schedules opening, the opportunity to direct his first film since 2015's "Joy" looks to be headed in the right direction. For his performance in The Fighter, Bale won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

According to both Russell's and Bale's IMDb pages, they are already set to team on a project titled Amsterdam, but it is not yet confirmed whether Robbie, 29, is joining them on that project or a different one. The role earned her some of the best reviews of her career, as well as her second Oscar nomination. New Regency will produce and distribute through their deal with 20th Century Studios formerly known as Fox.
