Three years after making his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, singer-songwriter-rockstar Harry Styles is returning to the big screen in Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling a 1950s psychological thriller set in an isolated, utopian Californian desert community.

Styles, who is replacing Shia LaBeouf in the cast following scheduling conflicts, will star alongside Chris Pine, Dakota Johnson, and Little Women and Midsommar’s Florence Pugh, while Olivia Wilde will have a supporting role.

According to Deadline, insiders claim that there was a mutual agreement between Pugh and Wilde to cast Styles after he blew them both away in his audition. Though he passed on the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action reboot of “The Little Mermaid,” Styles hasn’t committed to an acting project since Dunkirk, and fans are freaking out now about the news of his return to the silver screen.

 

New Line Cinemas is backing the film, and the screenplay was written by Katie Silberman, who worked with Wilde in her directorial debut Booksmart. Catherine Hardwicke will executive produce with Shane and Carey Van Dyke.
