Just one day after revealing how intimidating it is to take on a project like Suicide Squad, actress Margot Robbie shared even more details on the project. The actress first came into prominence in late 2013 with her role in the Best Picture nominee The Wolf of Wall Street, where she played Naomi Lapaglia, the mistress-turned-wife of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jordan Belfort. In Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn also has New York roots like her previous character, but in a new interview during the Sundance Film Festival, the actress hints that Harley Quinn's Brooklyn accent won't be as strong as Naomi's.
"None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she's from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight... I couldn't imagine it would be as strong as The Wolf of Wall Street accent. The lingo will be the difference between that and the other character I played in Wolf but I don't know yet. We haven't spoken about it."
Margot Robbie is joined by Will Smith (Deadshot), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) in writer-director David Ayer's comic book adaptation. The production is still looking for a new Rick Flagg, following the departure of Tom Hardy. Jake Gyllenhaal was sought as an early replacement, but he also backed out of the project. With production scheduled to begin in April at Pinewood Studios Toronto, hopefully we'll be learning more about Suicide Squad in the very near future.
