Margot Robbie’s Terminal heads for UK shoot
Director Vaughn Stein is at the helm of a major new feature which is heading to film in the UK in late spring.
Margot Robbie – who is also among the producers – takes on a lead role in Terminal, a noir thriller about two hitmen working on a borderline suicide mission. The Australian actress plays Annie, a dynamic woman who may be more involved with the mission than the pair are first led to believe.
The producers are LuckyChap Entertainment’s Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Robbie and Sophia Kerr (co-producer). UK film veteran David Barron produces for BeaglePug, and is joined by Molly Hassell in the line-up. Stein directs from his own screenplay.
A UK line producer attachment is imminent; we will report on Production Intelligence once this is confirmed. PI subscribers should make sure they are following the project as we will be updating with more specifics nearer the time of filming. Non-subscribers can click here for a free demo.
