Margot Robbie to Star in World War II Thriller ‘Ruin’
Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts are set to star in World War II revenge thriller Ruin.
Justin Kurzel (Assassin’s Creed) will direct from a Black List script by Ryan and Matthew Firpo. Marc Butan of MadRiver Pictures is producing alongside Kurzel. MadRiver’s Ara Keshishian is executive producing alongside Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar of Riverstone Pictures, who are co-financing.
Kurzel made his debut directing “The Snowtown Murders,” followed by “Macbeth” with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, and the adaptation of “Assassin’s Creed.”
Set in post-World War II Germany, Ruin sees a Holocaust survivor, played by Robbie, forced to make an unlikely alliance with an ex-SS captain (Schoenaerts) in her quest to exact revenge. Together, they hunt down the surviving members of the captain’s former Nazi death squad.
The film is set to shoot in Prague in spring 2019. Robbie will next appear as Queen Elizabeth I in Focus Features’ Mary Queen of Scots and is currently in production on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for Sony’s Columbia Pictures label.
Schoenaerts can next be seen in Mustang, which Focus Features will be releasing next year.
