Margot Robbie is fresh off her Oscar nomination for Bombshell, and she’s already gearing up to star in another promising project. The Australian actress has been cast in David O. Russell’s next film, also starring Christian Bale.

This project will serve as a follow-up to O. Russell’s 2015’s Joy, and not much is known about it at the moment. Collider previously reported that the project’s working title is Amsterdam and that it will “follow the unlikely partnership between a doctor and a lawyer.”

Christian Bale is no stranger to working with O. Russell, and he previously scored an Academy Award for the supporting role in his movie The Fighter and received another nomination for American Hustle. Robbie, however, never worked with the director and this film will be their first project together.

The Australian star recently starred in Once Upon a Time …in Hollywood and scored a series of major award nominations for her role in Bombshell. She returned to the theaters this month in the role of DC heroine Harley Quinn in their latest comic book movie Birds of Prey.
