Harry Styles to replace Shia LaBeouf in Olivia Wilde’s ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’: Report
Harry Styles is set to join the cast of “Don’t Worry, Darling,” a thriller, which also stars Florence Pugh, Chris Pine and Olivia Wilde.
Styles is taking over the role originally held by Shia LaBeouf, who had to exit the project because of a scheduling conflict, according to Variety.
Wilde is directing the film which will be adapted from a screenplay by Katie Silberman. It is set in a California desert during the 1950s.
“Don’t Worry, Darling” was highly sought after in Aug. 2019. After 18 bids, which were submitted by various studios for its rights, New Line wound up the victor to purchase the film.
Styles, mostly known for his musical abilities with the band One Direction, made his foray into acting last year in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” where he was cast by Nolan because the director thought Styles had “an old fashioned face,” which made his role more believable and period-correct. – Source
