Margot’s all about passion
Margot Robbie has said she loves donning the hat of a producer as she is “hugely passionate” about filmmaking. The actress, 27, who turned producer with I, Tonya last year with husband Tom Ackerley, says long working hours did not concern her.
“Producing is a huge job... But you don’t do it unless you love it... really, it’s a lot of time and effort for something unless you’re hugely passionate about it. But when you are doing something you’re hugely passionate about, you don’t care about the hours or whatever, and if you’re doing it with your friends, old friends and new friends, it’s not even work at that point,” Margot told Collider.
The actress will next be seen in Terminal, which was shot in 2016 and is technically her first production. “We learnt everything on this job, it was the first thing I’d produced so we learnt everything and it was incredibly difficult, but it has made everything since then much easier,” she said.
The film follows two hitmen (Dexter Fletcher and Max Irons) as they take on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a large paycheck. Along the way, the pair discover that the dynamic Annie (Margot) may be more involved than they had originally suspected. It also stars Simon Pegg and Mike Myers.
