Considering the last 12 months haven't been great for new releases, what with everything being put on hold, we're ready to fill our diaries with brilliant film and TV to look forward to. Step forward: Don't Worry Darling.

The movie was announced in mid 2020, has a brilliant cast and crew - and has already started filming (result). Here's what you need to know about the upcoming production.

Who stars in Don't Worry Darling?

SO many good people. Florence Pugh from Little Women was confirmed as the female lead in April, while 26-year-old Harry Styles was then added as the male lead in September. Shia LeBeouf allegedly pulled out due to scheduling conflicts, leading Harry to get the role.

Chris Pine from Wonder Woman has also been photographed on set, alongside Olivia Wilde (who will also direct), American actor and comedian Nick Kroll, and relative newcomer Sydney Chandler. Gemma Chan, and KiKi Layne will also reportedly star.

What is Don't Worry Darling about?

It's a thriller meets drama. Collider report that Florence will play an "unhappy housewife (Alice) who slowly begins to question her own sanity when she starts to notice strange occurrences in her small, utopian community in the California desert." Harry will be her "picture-perfect husband (Jack), who loves her dearly, but is hiding a dark secret from her."

Deadline added that it's a "psychological thriller which is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert."

The script was written by Booksmart writer Katie Silberman, and the production will be executive produced by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. Olivia Wilde will direct and also star.
