Harry Styles replaces Shia LaBeouf in Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling
Styles joins a cast that includes Florence Pugh and Chris Pine.
The actor was previously rumored to appear in director Dan Gilroy's Faster, Cheaper, Better due to a listing on the website for the project's international distributor. However, sources confirmed to EW that was not accurate.
Don't Worry Darling, which Wilde also directs and produces, is set in the 1950s at an isolated, utopian community in the California desert. New Line acquired the film in a competitive situation with 17 other bidders and production is now aiming to start filming this fall.
Screenwriter Katie Silberman, who wrote Wilde's directorial debut Booksmart, writes the screenplay based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke. Wilde and Silberman are also teaming up for a Marvel movie at Sony.
Deadline was the first to report the news.
