Margot Robbie joins the Peter Rabbit voice cast

Having worked together on the still untitled A. A. Milne biopic, it seems Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf Of Wall Street) will be reunited for the new Peter Rabbit – even if they won't actually share the screen. News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Robbie is in talks to lend her voice to the Beatrix Potter adaptation.

Described as a modern interpretation of Potter's story about the mischievous Peter (voiced by James Cordan) and his attempts to steal vegetables from the angry Mr. McGregor (Gleeson), the film will see CGI creatures sharing scenes with human characters.

Robbie is joining Corden in the voice ranks alongside Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E), while Rose Byrne is on board to play a human named Bea. Nothing is confirmed about Robbie's role, though The Hollywood Reporter has leaned she will be playing a rabbit.

Will Gluck (Easy A) is on board to direct and Australian effects outfit Animal Logic are providing the digitally created bestiary. Following films such as Suicide Squad this year, Robbie will be back on screens in a thriller called Terminal, which has yet to announce a release date. And Peter won't be her first voice job – she is also part of the cast for Larrikins, due out on 15 February 2018.
