Aussie Margot Robbie might star in Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street

Australian actress Margot Robbie (Neighbours) is in talks for the female lead in Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of The Wolf of Wall Street, according to Deadline.

The film, adapted from the bestselling memoir by Jordon Belfort, already has Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jon Bernthal, and Jean Dujardin (The Artist) attached to star. Robbie would star opposite DiCaprio’s hard-partying, alcohol and drug abusing Wall Street broker Belfort, as the film tracks his rise and eventual fall.

Robbie is currently filming About Time alongside Rachel McAdams and with writer-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually) at the helm. Her television series Pan Am was cancelled after months of speculation, so a starring role in such a high-profile film would be a definite turning point in her career.

The Wolf of Wall Street is slated to begin filming in New York in August.
