Don’t Worry Darling will be Wilde’s second film as director, following Booksmart in 2019. The multi-hyphenate reunited with Booksmart screenwriter Katie Silberman, who adapted this latest screenplay from a spec script written by Shane and Carey Van Dyke.
Elsewhere, Styles recently kicked off his rescheduled LOVE ON TOUR across the U.S. in support of his 2019 record FINE LINE. Aside from Don’t Worry Darling, the musician-turned-actor is also slated to appear in My Policeman, a romantic drama in which portrays a gay policeman that marries a woman to hide his sexuality in the 1950s. The film does not yet have a release date.
