Margot Robbie isn’t just a beautiful face – she is talented, smart, and full of absolute power. Fans aren’t the only ones who have picked up on this as news broke today that Robbie is set to play Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots alongside Saoirse Ronan. Looks like she’ll be taking rule over another role with smashing success.
Variety broke the news with an exclusive piece this morning and had some information about the film and it’s road to production.
‘“House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon is writing an original script based on a book by John Guy titled “The True Life of Mary Stuart.” “Mary” has yet to be greenlit, but sources say things are headed in the right direction. If greenlit, the film would likely go sometime later this year. Ronan will play the title role of Mary.‘
In the life of Mary Stuart, Queen Elizabeth is no heroine and Mary’s story is one laced in tragedy since just days after her birth. Her father passed away before she was a week old which led to a tumultuous upbringing. It seems, from the small bit of information we know so far, the film will follow the story well enough. A description of the movie is as follows.
‘Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.’
We certainly hope that things continue heading in the right direction as far as Mary Queen of Scots is concerned. Seeing Robbie play a queen is something we didn’t know we needed, but now, it’s something we absolutely need.
