Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie May Reunite With Jared Leto For Hugh Hefner Biopic

If the past week is any indication, Brett Ratner’s long-in-development Hugh Hefner biopic could be well worth the wait.

With film fans still reeling from the news that Jared Leto (Blade Runner 2049) has come on board to headline the feature, we’re now learning that a Suicide Squad reunion could be on the cards, as one source close to The Mirror has tipped Margot Robbie to play one of Hefner’s three wives: Mildred Williams, Kimberley Conrad, or Crystal Harris.

Hugh Hefner was supposedly a big fan of the Aussie actress prior to his recent death, having extended an invitation for her to appear in Playboy Magazine circa 2014. Robbie politely declined the offer, but it’s understood the Hollywood star has now entered talks to co-star in Ratner’s biopic, one that will seemingly chronicle the rise and rise of Hugh Hefner, from shrewd businessman to renown entrepreneur.

Hugh Hefner's Will: Who Inherits the 'Playboy' Founder's Estimated $50 Million Fortune?
Hugh Hefner died on Wednesday at the age of 91, and the American media icon leaves behind an impressive fortune. The question now is, who will be receiving a piece of the sizeable inheritance?

With an enormous publishing empire to his name -- which Hefner founded in the early 1950s with a total start-up capital of $8,000 including money he borrowed from his mom -- the Playboy founder's estate is estimated to be worth $50 million.

However, a source close to Hefner’s family tells Et that the family is not expecting any battle over money because his wife, Crystal Harris, was "made well aware that she was not going to be inheriting anything from his death when they married."

Harris, who tied the knot with Hefner in 2012, was the publishing magnate's third wife following his first marriage to Mildred Williams -- with whom he shares two children, daughter Christie and son David -- and his subsequent marriage to Playboy

Inside Hugh Hefner and Holly Madison’s Strained Relationship: From 'No. 1 Girl' to Estranged Exes
Family, friends and fans are mourning the loss of Hugh Hefner, the Playboy founder who died peacefully at his home at the age of 91 on Wednesday.

While many of his famous Playmates have expressed their condolences via social media and in statements to Et -- like Kendra Wilkinson, Bridget Marquardt and Pamela Anderson -- there's one that's been noticeably silent: Holly Madison.

In her 2015 memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, Madison claims she contemplated suicide due to her unhappy life in the mansion.

From head over heels to their now-infamous feud, Et's breaking down what led to their strained relationship, and how it affected Madison's friendship with one of her The Girls Next Door co-stars.

'Playboy' Founder Hugh Hefner Dies at 91

Hugh Hefner built an empire and created an entire lifestyle based on the simple premise that people are always fascinated by what is considered taboo.
