Wolf of Wall Street star pounces on new role

The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie is set to star opposite Oscar-nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine in the post-apocalyptic thriller Z for Zachariah.

Having broken though with her performance as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in the Martin Scorsese comedy-drama, the Australian actress will replace Amanda Seyfried, who was forced to drop out.

She will play a teenager living on a farm who initially appears to be the sole survivor of a nuclear war.

Originally known for the role of Donna Freedman in the Aussie soap Neighbours, she made her mainstream feature debut in the Richard Curtis rom-com About Time.

Z for Zachariah is adapted by director Craig Zobel from the novel by Richard C O'Brien.
