A few months ago, big casting announcements for Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling emerged. Among the ensemble cast was Chris Pine, Dakota Johnson, and Little Women star Florence Pugh. However, original casting information included the eccentric Shia LaBeouf as well. However, due to scheduling conflicts with other projects, the Honey Boy star will be unable to fulfill his commitment. As first reported by The Wrap, multi-platinum selling recording artist Harry Styles will now join the cast in LeBeaouf’s original role.
The film will see Styles’ return to the big screen following a memorable turn in Christopher Nolan’s WW2 epic Dunkirk. Additionally, the performer has been featured on multiple episodes of NBC’s Saturday Night Live as well. Styles will reportedly portray the aforementioned Florence Pugh’s husband in the film.
Olivia Wilde will direct the upcoming feature from New Line Cinema. Moreover, Wilde will star in the film as well. With a script co-written by Wilde and Katie Silberman (Booksmart), the film will be set in an isolated community in 1950s California. While details remain scarce, the plot will center around a housewife, played by Pugh, as she discovers unsettling truths about the life she thought she lived.
Fresh of the release of his second album, Fine Line, in 2019, Styles is riding a wave of success and popularity. Once a member of One Director, the best selling boy band of all time, Styles continues to carve a legacy all his own. In fact, the singer was once attached to roles in Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Baz Luhrmann‘s Elvis Presley movie. Furthermore, Olivia Wilde continues to bolster her filmography as she next directs an untitled female-centered Marvel film for Sony Pictures.
