Margot Robbie is reportedly set to join Christian Bale in David O. Russell’s latest movie.

The Bombshell actress has followed up her two nominations at Sunday’sĀ Oscars by joining the cast of the mysterious new film, according to Variety.

Russell is reportedly set to direct from his own script, but plot details are being kept secret. It will be Russell’s first movie since 2015’s Joy.

According to Variety, the director had been mulling going forward with several projects while trying to put together the cast, before Robbie and Bale’s schedules opened up, allowing them to sign up for the film.

The filmmaker will also produce via his New Regency firm. He has received three Best Director Oscar nominations in addition to two screenplay nominations throughout his career.
