STUFF I, Tonya star Margot Robbie has confirmed she will play late actor Sharon Tate in the upcoming film by Quentin Tarantino.

Speaking to Stuff in Sydney ahead of the Peter Rabbit premiere on Saturday, Robbie confirmed she would play the actress who was brutally killed by Charles Manson’s associates on August 9, 1969.

Robbie said she was very excited to star in Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

“So yes, I will need to start researching,” she said.

Tarantino’s film has so far been shrouded in secrecy but Variety has confirmed that Leonardo DiCaprio will also star in the film.

Tate and four friends were found dead August 9, 1969. Manson ordered his followers to visit the house where the pregnant Tate was staying in Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles with Steve Parent, Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, and Abigail Folger.

Tate was eight and a half months pregnant with director Roman Polanski’s baby.

DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Deadline broke last July 11 that Quentin Tarantino had met with Margot Robbie and asked her to play Sharon Tate in his next film. She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality. Robbie, who’s coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in the title role of I, Tonya, will join Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

As Tarantino continues to set a killer ensemble, Sony Pictures has dated the film for an August 9, 2019 release worldwide. The film is a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry set in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood, around the time of the murder of Tate and several others in a killing spree ordered by Charles Manson.

The two other lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. In the film Tate is Rick’s very famous next door neighbor.

Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360, Aran Michael Management and Jackoway Tyerman.

DEADLINE – Bold Films will finance the Margot Robbie project Dangerous Odds in which the I, Tonya Best Actress Oscar nominee will play cleaning lady-turned-illegal sports betting empire boss Marisa Lankester. The project was picked up in turnaround from Warner Bros., where Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment has a first-look deal.

The project is based on Lankester’s memoir Dangerous Odds: My Secret Life Inside an Illegal Billion-Dollar Sports Betting Operation, which originally was won by Warner Bros. in a January 2015 auction as exclusively reported by Deadline. LuckyChap and Entertainment 360, the production arm of Management 360, will produce with Bold, and the feature is based on a script by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton).

Lankester’s rags-to-riches tale is set during the 1980s as she rises through the ranks and takes on a pivotal role establishing the first offshore gambling operation, growing it into a billion-dollar-a-year criminal empire.

Said Bold Films Chairman Michel Litvak: “We are incredibly excited to work with Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie at this momentous time in her career. She will do an amazing job bring this thrilling true story and fascinating character to life.”

Added Bold Films CEO Gary Michael Walters, who is serving as EP with Svetlana Metkina: “It’s a great character; it’s a female Scarface in the rise of this great criminal operation under the leadership of a very savvy woman. Margot Robbie is an extraordinary actress and couldn’t be hotter right now. She is so versatile and strong with comedy, drama and action — she really is the full package, and that’s rare. She’s built up a great production company with LuckyChap.”

These type of independent films in the budget range of $25M-$35M are Bold’s sweet spot, and there’s a strong appetite for such fare in the current indie marketplace. Robbie’s film canon has reaped close to $1.9 billion at the global box office.

“We are building LuckyChap off of a passion to tell female-driven stories that feel original, unique and rebellious in nature,” LuckyChap Entertainment said. “We found all of this in Marisa’s story and couldn’t be more excited to partner with Bold Films and 360 to bring Dangerous Odds to the screen.”

THE ENVELOPE – “I, Tonya,” the Craig Gillespie-directed biopic about Tonya Harding, the figure skater banned from competition for life for her connection to a 1994 attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan, has brought its stars — Margot Robbie, who plays an unsinkable Harding, and Allison Janney, as her sharp-tongued mother, LaVona — Oscar nominations, critical acclaim and, not surprisingly, a newfound love for the Winter Olympics. “We’re watching men’s half-pipe,” reports Robbie, jet-lagged and talking via speakerphone while sitting alongside Janney in a London hotel room. “We’re just mesmerized.”

The pair were in town to attend the BAFTAs, where they were both nominees. Before heading off to a party, they took time out to talk about the film’s more nuanced examination of Harding’s life (domestic violence, the skating world’s contempt for her working-class roots), Janney’s annoying parakeet costar and the reaction Robbie, an “I, Tonya” producer, had during her initial reading of Steven Rogers’ script.

It’s so easy to dismiss these characters and their feelings. But by the end of it, I was devastated, angry and frustrated for them. I’d laugh out loud at something, then immediately feel disgusted with myself that I found it funny,” says Robbie. “To be able to let those feelings creep up on you, instead of being told to feel them? That’s a real art form.”

Parsing what’s true or false is a daily struggle of late. How much do you believe your characters?

Robbie: I knew we’d never know exactly how it went down. Twenty years later, everyone had completely different recollections of the same thing. Truth and reality had parted ways. My character’s truth was not necessarily the reality of the situation. But her version of the truth was far more interesting to me than the facts.

Janney: What made it so fun was the juxtaposition of everyone’s truth. You see LaVona throw a knife at her daughter, then cut to me saying, “What family doesn’t have their ups and downs?” Her truth was that she was a good mother, she gave her daughter an opportunity, and her daughter screwed it up by picking the [wrong] man. Where the reality is? I don’t know.

Talk about one of the villains of the film: The classist United States Figure Skating Assn.

Robbie: Real-life Tonya has been very vocal in past interviews about her feeling that she never had a chance with them to begin with. I really wanted the character to be constantly seeking validation from people who wouldn’t give it to her — her mom, her husband, the skating association. The more they rejected her, the more it mattered to her that they accept her.

For all her ghastly parenting, Tonya’s tippling, four-times married mother has a few tiny glimmers of humanity.

Janney: Steven peppered them in there, thankfully, because otherwise she’d be too much to take. There’s a scene in the diner, the one where Tonya, needing her mother, comes to her and you get a glimpse of what [LaVona’s] childhood must have been like. You see a woman disappointed by life and who was probably abused, because abuse tends to be cyclical. She’s filled with resentment and anger, who doesn’t know how to love or be loved. That was a very redemptive moment for me.

Margot, you met with Tonya in Portland just before production began. What were you hoping to learn?

Robbie: I didn’t go there with a list of questions or holes in my backstory that I needed to fill in. I wanted to meet just out of respect for her. There’s an added feeling of responsibility and obligation when you tell a real life person’s story. But I also wanted her to know that I was going to be playing a character in a film. The most helpful thing was watching her talk about her son, which she was very quick to do. She loves her son and has found a peace in her life with her family.

Allison, walk us through the scenes where LaVona, hooked up to an oxygen tank, addresses the camera while a scene-stealing parakeet is perched on her shoulder.

Janney: It was all done in one afternoon. The bird was fascinated with that breathing tube, and he started pecking at it. I knew I couldn’t stop. We didn’t have another day to [film those scenes]. So I just kept talking. He kind of fueled me with his constant pecking. It was so much fun to do: What I was imagining was that I was speaking to God or whoever is going to determine whether [LaVona] goes to heaven or hell. My side of it was, “Well, I gave that girl everything.”

Were either of you surprised when Tonya recently told ABC that she “knew something was up” before the attack?

Robbie: Not necessarily. The way I played the character, and this isn’t based on fact, but just a personal decision, was that she probably heard [her ex-husband] Jeff and [his friend] Shawn coming up with schemes all the time, crazy things, and she never took any of that seriously, because it never came to fruition.

Allison, you didn’t meet Tonya until the L.A. premiere, correct?

Janney: She came up to me at the after-party and said, “You nailed my mother.” Steven told me that was the only thing [Tonya and Jeff] agreed on, how LaVona was. I felt happy to have her approval and also very, very sad. So I gave her a hug and said, “Thank you for saying that and sorry for having to go through everything you went through.”

Margot, you and Tonya keep in touch. Have you noticed a difference since the film was released?

Robbie: The first time I met her, it felt like she wasn’t past it at all. Sebastian [Stan, who plays Harding’s ex-husband] met Jeff, so I said to him, “The one thing that upset me more than anything was that it’s not a forgotten time in her life, that it still seems very fresh. Was it like that with Jeff?”

And Sebastian said, “No. Not at all.” He said that he felt like Jeff had completely moved on and that it was a long-lost chapter in his life. I found that heartbreaking — he got to move on and she didn’t. And now when I speak to her, I feel like she’s leaving it behind her. I wouldn’t speak on her behalf, but it feels like she’s found some closure.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
The Oscar-nominated actress also opens up about how she got into the mind-set of Tonya Harding.
Robbie already was becoming known — for her breakout role in The Wolf of Wall Street and for playing the demented villain Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad — but the Australian actress, 27, proved her range by portraying infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. Robbie earned her first Oscar nomination for playing the ice champ from ages 15 through 40 in the dark comedy, which attempts to explain how an athlete with such raw talent could land at the center of the sport’s biggest scandal. Robbie spoke to THR about her favorite memories from the shoot and the awards-season circuit.

What was it like to hear you’d been nominated?
I was at home in Australia for the I, Tonya premiere, and it was 1 in the morning when the nominations started coming through. We were already out at the after-party, so I was literally with all my friends and my family, and we were already having some champagne, and then we obviously kept celebrating. It was perfect.
Have you had any unexpected interactions during awards season?
You start meeting people that you just, like, you had no idea they even knew who you were. I had quite a surreal moment where I watched Thelma & Louise the night before the SAG Awards, and then the first two people I ran into were Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. That was so bizarre.
How was it to spend time with Tonya at the Golden Globes?
It was really fun, especially because the Globes are a very fun night anyway. I think she had a great time meeting people and meeting people that she either did know who they were or had absolutely no idea who they were but they still happened to be very famous. It was very funny. And people seemed to be incredibly starstruck to see her in return.

Did you keep anything from the shoot?

I kept my ice skates because I spent months breaking them in. And I kept a big bag of [hair] scrunchies — I love scrunchies now.

What other films did you love?

I loved Shape of Water so much. And I loved Three Billboards, and I loved Lady Bird. There are so many good ones this year.
