Margot Robbie has a new World War II project on the way, and it sounds very impressive.

Now, everybody knows that I’m all about World War II movies and television shows. I live for them, and this upcoming project from Robbie sounds great.

“The things women did in the Second World War were incredible. We have a TV project [in development] about female codebreakers who shaved two years off the war. Never heard of any of them, or the women of the SOE [Special Operations Executive]. I would have loved to hear about that in class,” She said during an interview with RadioTimes.com(RELATED: Watching ‘Band Of Brothers‘ Never Gets Old. Here’s Why It’s Such A Great Series)

It should be fascinating to see Robbie in a WWII film.

Something tells me that a show about badass women fighting the Nazis and winning the war won’t have a problem drawing eyeballs, especially with a certified smoke like Robbie leading the way. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Trust me. I get paid to know these things.

Obviously, we don’t have a ton of details and and it sounds like her project is right around the corner. That’s not necessarily bad news.

That allows plenty of time for the hype train to get nice and sped up. My only request is that we get to see Robbie in some combat fatigues.

Again, you’re just crazy if you think that won’t draw viewers. It absolutely will.

Make sure to check back from time to time for more details when we have them. I’m going to be following the development of this show like a hawk.
