Margot Robbie Wants to Direct, but ‘It’s Not Something I’m in a Rush to Do’

In the decade since her breakout role in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Robbie has produced six feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner. She hinted to Variety before the dinner that she has plans to direct someday.

“It’s not something I’m in a rush to do,” Robbie told Variety. “I love so much that as an actor, I get to see how so many other directors work and how they do it. And it’s so helpful. As far as my love of film, my taste is pretty eclectic, and I think that would correspond to my appetite.”

Robbie named Wes Anderson when asked about the most innovative directors that she’s had the chance to work with. She will star in his next upcoming film, currently dubbed “Asteroid City,” alongside Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson.

“Innovative, certainly on a practical level, I love Wes Anderson’s films,” Robbie said. “Once you get to sit on a set and actually see the mechanical side to how he pulls off those worlds and those shots — oh, man, that’s so exciting.”
