Looks like Margot Robbie isn't done playing the well-loved DC Comics villain Harley Quinn just yet. The actress has recently signed a 'first-look deal' with Warner Bros, gearing her up to produce a number of future films alongside the studio.

At the moment, the Australian actress has two projects in the pipeline with the studio, including a big-screen adaptation of Dean N. Jensen's non-fiction book Queen of the Air: A True Story of Love and Tragedy at the Circus and unsurprisingly, a Suicide Squad spin-off based around her standout character, Harley Quinn.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the arrangement will see the 26-year-old work through her existing banner LuckyChap Entertainment. Her long-term friends Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr and her partner Tom Ackerley also produce within the company.

Despite only rising to fame in 2013 – in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street – Robbie has emerged as one of Hollywood's names to watch over the last few years. Since that breakout role, she has appeared in Focus (alongside Will Smith), Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (opposite Tina Fey), Oscar-winning drama The Big Short and The Legend Of Tarzan (with Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson).

Propelled further into the limelight this year by Warner Bros, Robbie landed the plum role of Arkham Asylum psychiatrist-turned-crazed baddie and long-time girlfriend of Jared Leto's The Joker in Suicide Squad. The film went on to make $701 million (£529.3m) so it's no great surprise the studio are keen to revisit the characters that went down best with cinema-goers.

Marking her first film as producer, Robbie will be seen next in neo-noir thriller Terminal, alongside Simon Pegg and Mike Myers as well as I, Tonya – which sees her in the producer chair – as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding.

As if that wasn't too much activity, Robbie is also developing an adaptation of Matt Ruff's action-crime thriller novel Bad Monkeys for Universal Pictures.
