The Toronto International Film Festival (more commonly referred to as TIFF) is currently happening, and quite a lot of exciting news is flooding out of the event. Today, we get a sexy first look at actress Margot Robbie in her upcoming noir thriller Terminal. Highland Film Group is handling international sales. And the movie is currently screening for select buyers at TIFF.
Margot Robbie headlines director Vaughn Stein's anticipated Terminal. CAA is selling the US rights to the film which also stars Simon Pegg, Max Irons, Mike Myers and Dexter Fletcher. David Barron of BeaglePug, Molly Hassell and HFG's Arianne Fraser produced the film alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Margot Robbie under their LuckyChap Entertainment banner.
The film began production in Hungary this past May. And with the movie already screening, it seems that the project has moved swiftly and smoothly over the past five months. Terminal tells the story of two hit-men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman named Annie, (Robbie) that may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
HFG arranged financing with Ingenious Media, RuYi Media and Miscellaneous Entertainment. Executive producers are John Jencks, D. Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, George Waud, Shelley Madison, Charles Auty, Simon Williams, Delphine Perrier and Henry Winterstern. HFG is handling international sales and CAA represents the U.S. rights.
Margot Robbie most recently appeared in this summer's Suicide Squad, which is one of the most financially successful movies of 2016. She was also in The Legend of Tarzan, playing wife Jane in what proved to be a substantial bomb for Warner Bros. She will next be seen in Terminal, which does not have a stateside release date yet. Simon Pegg last appeared in Star Trek Beyond this summer, also having co-wrote the movie. He is currently shooting Ready Player One for Steven Spielberg and will also reprise his role as Unkar Plutt in Star Wars 8, which is currently in post-production. Mike Myers hasn't appeared in a movie since 2009's Inglorious Basterds, where he had a small yet memorable role. He did return to voice Sherk in the 2010 sequel Shrek Forever After.
With Terminal completed, it isn't quite clear when we'll see the first trailer. For now, we'll have to be content with this first look image of Margot Robbie posing as a femme fatale. The movie will most likely get a 2017 release date, arriving in the early part of the year.
