Harry Styles, the former One Direction star turned solo artist, first took to the big screen in Dunkirk and is returning to acting after Shia LaBeouf had to drop out of the upcoming thriller due to scheduling problems.
Florence Pugh was assigned to the project back in the spring with Chris Pine of Wonder Woman fame also co-staring and it is being touted as a “psychological thriller which is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.”
Big news alert! Harry Styles is returning to the big screen and he’s starring alongside favourite and former cover star, Florence Pugh in the new movie, Don’t Worry Darling. And, don’t you worry darlings, we are BEYOND excited.
Details on the new film are fairly limited at the moment but Olivia Wilde will be returning to the director’s chair and even penning the script. Following her critically-acclaimed directorial debut in Booksmart – who wasn’t obsessed with her take on the teenage coming of age story – Olivia is rapidly becoming highly in-demand and has recently been employed to create a new female-led Marvel film. Olivia, after turning her back on acting, is the definition of booked and busy.
Florence is no stranger to a period piece and we can not wait to see Harry in his finest fifties clobber.
The film is being written by Olivia Wilde alongside her long-term writing partner Katie Silberman, with Amy Pascal producing and Rachel O’Connor acting as executive produces. Isn’t it great to have more female-led productions heading to the big screen? Hell yes it is!
Production on the movie is yet to begin but hopefully filming will get underway shortly as Corona or no Corona, we can not wait to have Harry Styles AND Florence Pugh on our screens. Get. Ready.
