MARGOT ROBBIE TO JOIN
CIRCUS AS 'QUEEN OF THE AIR'
After running through jungle with Alexander Skarsgard in Tarzan this summer, it seems Margot Robbie will now be flying through air as well! As 'Deadline' reports today she has taken the lead role in period set biopic QUEEN OF THE AIR based on Dean N. Jensen’s 2013 book of the same name!
The movie will bring us the story of famed trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel and her tragic romance with fellow acrobat Alfredo Codona. The German born Leitzel became a sensation in the 1920s for her death defying stunts, eventually entering into a famously volatile love affair and marriage with Codona. She died tragically in 1931 during a live performance when her rigging snapped; Codona died 6 years later in a shocking Long beach, California set murder suicide.
