Margot Robbie has won the female lead in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming Focus. Variety reports that the Wolf of Wall Street star will appear opposite Will Smith in the con artist tale from writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love.)

The film is said to involve a romance between a professional conman and someone just learning the criminal art and how their past relationship comes back into play when they meet up again years later.

Earlier iterations of the project were planning to feature the pairings of both Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and, later, Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart in the leading roles.

Robbie, currently best known for her television work on shows like "Neighbours" and "Pan Am," can also soon be seen on the big screen in the time travel romance About Time.

Focus will be produced by Denise DiNovi.
