“Pan Am” star Margot Robbie may soon co-star with Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The actress is in talks to play Nadine, the wife of Jordan Belfort, according to two individuals with knowledge of the situation.
Red Granite Pictures owns the rights to Belfort’s memoir of his time on Wall Street, in which he chronicles both professional success and personal havoc. A rising star of the trading floor, drugs, alcohol and other demons led to his downfall.
“Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter has adapted the book for the big screen while Red Granite’s Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland are producing alongside DiCaprio, Scorsese and Emma Koskoff and Alexandra Milchan.
Jonah Hill will also star in the project while "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin is in talks for a role.
Production will begin in August in New York. Good thing the young Australian actress is used to the heat.
