Everything We Know So Far About The New Harry Styles Movie Don't Worry Darling

Like many pop stars, Harry Styles has been pivoting towards an acting career over the past few years. The singer first found major success with boy band One Direction, which has been hiatus since 2015, and then enjoyed success as a solo artist. In 2017, the pop star made his way onto the big screen with a starring role in "Dunkirk" and his performance was met with much fanfare, but Styles wasn't sure about continuing his acting career following the film's release. "I've peaked too soon! There's nowhere to go," he said of the experience (via J-14). This year, Styles will make his second silver screen appearance in the upcoming film "Don't Worry Darling," and this is what we know so far.

The film is being directed by Olivia Wilde and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The all-star cast includes Styles alongside Hollywood heavy hitter Florence Pugh and Wilde as well. Also appearing in the movie will be Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Kiki Layne, Sydney Chandler, and Nick Kroll (via Us Weekly). Initially, both Shia LaBoeuf and Dakota Johnson were slated to appear in the starring roles, but both had to drop out of the cast due to scheduling conflicts.

Harry Styles' return to the big screen is much anticipated

"Don't Worry Darling" will be a psychological thriller set in the 1950s with Harry Styles and Florence Pugh starring as husband and wife. Recently, director and co-star Olivia Wilde posted a short snippet of the film in which the duo is seen sharing a passionate on-screen kiss (via Us Weekly). The couple moves to a supposedly idyllic but experimental neighborhood as a result of the husband's place of employment. Throughout the film, the secrets of the community begin to unravel. Actor Chris Pine said of the project, "The aesthetic of the movie is beautiful. The story is so compelling and so fun and so dark and twisted."

Filming for "Don't Worry Darling" originally began in 2020, but was postponed due to complications from the pandemic. On set, crew members tested positive for COVID-19 which, alongside recasting issues, delayed the movie's initial release. "It definitely affects that exact ingredient in the process, that camaraderie. It definitely makes it more difficult," said Wilde. "Don't Worry Darling" has since gotten back on schedule and is set to be released on September 23, 2022. In Wilde's teaser post on Instagram, she revealed that the release will be in theaters only, so you won't be able to watch it on a streaming service until after the run in theaters is complete.
