Margot Robbie teams up with Colin Farrell for new film

Barbie star Margot Robbie is teaming up with Colin Farrell for her next film.

The actress will be starring opposite The Batman's Farrell in a fantasy film called A Big Bold Beautiful Journey, according to Deadline.

Details about the film's plot are being held back for now. What we do know though is that it's the story of two strangers brought together on an unbelievable adventure.

The project is a reunion for Farrell and director Kogonada after collaborating on the critically-acclaimed sci-fi drama After Yang. The filmmaker also wrote, directed and edited 2017 film Columbus.

The script comes from Seth Reiss, who got his start working on Late Night with Seth Meyers and most recently co-wrote Golden Globe-nominated horror comedy The Menu.

A Big Bold Beautiful Journey will be Robbie's first major film project following the success of Barbie, aside from working on the next instalment of the Ocean's franchise.

Margot is set to reunite with Barbie co-star Ryan Gosling in the 1960s-set origin story for Ocean's Eleven, though she has confirmed the project is still in the "development" stage.

"Word got out about that; we didn't release anything because it's way too soon, to be honest," Margot recently told Deadline.

"Whether it winds up being the next thing, I don't know. I don't think so. It's a pretty big project to put together and there are certain logistical things that we have to time it around."

As for a potential Barbie sequel, Margot has also been cautious about whether it would be wise to revisit the film that has made more than $1 billion worldwide.

"I think we put everything into this one," Robbie told AP. "We didn't, like, we didn't build it to be a trilogy or something. It was like Greta put everything into this movie, so I can't imagine what would be next."

While Margot didn't get an acting nomination for Barbie at the Oscars, she's still nominated as a producer for Best Picture. That's because her company LuckyChap Entertainment spearheaded the film.

Barbie is available to rent or buy on Prime Video now.
