Margot Robbie to produce Barbed Wire Heart for Warner Bros.

Margot Robbie’s production company Luckychap has teamed with Dan Lin’s Rideback to adapt the gritty crime novel Barbed Wire Heart for Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter. Robbie is not expected to star in the adaptation.

Here is the Amazon description of the novel written by Tess Sharpe:

“Harley McKenna is the only child of North County’s biggest criminal. Duke McKenna’s run more guns, cooked more meth, and killed more men than anyone around. Harley’s been working for him since she was sixteen–collecting debts, sweet-talking her way out of trouble, and dreading the day he’d deem her ready to rule the rural drug empire he’s built. Her time’s run out. The Springfields, her family’s biggest rivals, are moving in. Years ago, they were responsible for her mother’s death, and now they’re coming for Duke’s only weak spot: his daughter. But if Harley wants to survive and protect the people she loves, she’s got to take out Duke’s operation and the Springfields. Blowing up meth labs is dangerous business, and getting caught will be the end of her, but Harley has one advantage: She is her father’s daughter. And McKennas always win.”

Carly Wray (Westworld) has been tapped to pen the script, while Robbie will produce alongside Tom Ackerley, Lin and Jonathan Eirich. Nick Reynolds will oversee the project for Rideback. Josey McNamara will executive produce.

Luckychap produced the Academy-Award winning film I,Tonya, which starred Robbie, and the upcoming indie drama Dreamland; also starring Robbie along with Travis Fimmel. The company is also working on Birds of Prey, in which Robbie will reprise her role of Harley Quinn alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ewan McGregor.
