Margot Robbie: “Amsterdam” had to be shut down by the LAPD

“David never called this movie ‘Cut,'” Robbie said. “So technically, we never really stopped.”

Margot Robbie revealed the ‘Amsterdam’ production lasted forever…literally.

While joking on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Robbie joked that since director David O. Russell declined to call the “edit” on set, the film is still in production, though it’s due out on October 7th cinemas come.

“He never said ‘cut.’ David never called this film ‘cut,'” Robbie said. “So technically, we never really stopped.”

It wasn’t until the Pasadena Police Department showed up that production was halted due to curfew concerns.

“You get permission to shoot anywhere. We were in Pasadena and time was up,” Robbie explained. “We were supposed to clean up, but we didn’t. And the producers freaked out and David is still going and Christian [Bale] is still acting. And finally, the Pasadena police were literally on set when we all said, ‘Stop. you have to stop So you have to stop. Please.'”

A policewoman had to yell “Wrap” to stop the production. “Honestly, everyone heard the word ‘pack up’ and put the gear down and started packing,” said Robbie. “I thought, ‘Wow. A Pasadena cop just finished filming this movie. It was amazing.”

Working with Russell, who often works with Oscar winner Bale, proved a different filmmaking experience for Robbie.

“No day is like the other. He doesn’t want to stop. He could go on forever,” Robbie said. “And the same goes for Christian, who stars in this film. Christian Bale plays this incredible character and is also a very, very incredible actor. And both are so dedicated to this film and their craft.”

Robbie described the 1930s-set mystery as an “epic comedic thriller” alongside John David Washington, Robert De Niro, Anya Taylor-Joy and Taylor Swift. Amsterdam is Russell’s third collaboration with Oscar winner Bale, following The Fighter and American Hustle. Bale is also producing the film. This is also Russell’s fourth film with De Niro, following Joy, American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook.

Bale told IndieWire that co-star Chris Rock was “so damn funny” that he “couldn’t act” around him.

“I just got Christian laughing at Chris Rock,” Bale said of staying in the role. “So I had to go to him, I said, ‘Dude, I love talking to you and we have mutual friends, but I can’t anymore. Because David didn’t ask me to do this film so he could just see me giggling. He wants me to be Burt and I’m forgetting how to be Burt.'”
