Fresh news, Margot Fans! It has just been revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that Margot is in final negotiations to join the cast of Peter Rabbit, a live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of the children’s tale written by Beatrix Potter!

Margot Robbie is in final negotiations to join the high beta-carotene cast of Peter Rabbit, Sony’s live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of the children’s tale written by Beatrix Potter.

James Corden, Rose Byrne, Domnhall Gleeson, Daisy Ridley and Elizabeth Debicki are already on board the project, being directed by Will Gluck.

Rabbit is being described as a modern interpretation of Potter’s works centering on the rivalry between mischievous young hopper Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor, a man trying to keep a rabbit-free garden.

Corden is voicing Peter Rabbit, while Gleeson is playing McGregor. Byrne is portraying a character named Bea, likely a stand-in for the author, Potter.

Details of Robbie’s role are being kept buried in garden but it is known she will voice a bunny.

Gluck is producing Rabbit with Zareh Nalbandian of Animal Logic Entertainment. Gluck also has been revising the latest draft of the script, which was written by Rob Lieber.

Robbie had a busy 2016 with three major movies released: Suicide Squad, Legend of Tarzan, and Whisky Tango Foxtrot. The Australian is just starting to broach the world of voicework, with Rabbit being only her second work. Her first voice acting gig is Larrikins, a DreamWorks Animation movie due out next year.
