Margot Robbie is being lined up for the new gambling biopic Dangerous Odds.

According to The Wrap, The Wolf of Wall Street star will play the role of Marisa Lankester, a young beautiful woman who helped Ron 'The Cigar' Sacco run an illegal sports betting operation in the 1980s and 1990s.

The pair's scheme became the largest bookmaking organisation in the world.

World Trade Centre and Straight Outta Compton writer Andrew Berloff will adapt the script from Lankester's memoir.
