After The Flood follows the story of Myra and her seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, surviving in the flooded, post-apocalyptic landscape of 2031. 

Multi-talented Margot launched LuckyChap Entertainment with her husband Tom Ackerley in 2014 in an attempt to find better roles for herself.  

She told the Radio Times in April: 'I wasn't seeing many scripts where I wanted to play the female role.

'The female roles are always a catalyst for the male story, and that's unsatisfying. So I was like, "Well, we'll start making our own films, because we can't just sit around for ever and wait for them to come along."' 

Margot, who scored her first Oscar nomination for her role as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, landed her big break in Hollywood in 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street.

Since then, she has taken on a number of diverse roles, including Queen Elizabeth I in the historical drama film Mary Queen of Scots.

Last month, it was reported that Margot is also 'in talks' to play a murdered primary school teacher in the upcoming dark comedy Fools Day.

If the deal goes through, the actress will play a fourth grade teacher who is killed by her class during an April Fool's Day prank gone wrong.

Meanwhile, the blonde is also gearing up to reprise her role as Harley Quinn in DC spin-off film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
