The Gold Coast's own Margot Robbie is set to lead her people into battle, in Sony Pictures newest film.

The Australian actress landed the lead as Maid Marian, in the new Robin Hood based flick "Marian".

A twist on the classic rob-from-the-rich-give-to-the-poor plot, the movie (written by Pete Barry) sees Robbie's character picks up the do-gooder's cause and takes charge of the Merry Men, after the love of her life Robin dies.

Robbie will also produce the film under her production company LuckyChap Entertainment.
