A crew member working on the upcoming film, Don’t Worry Darling, has tested positive for coronavirus, causing production to be halted. 

Variety reported that New Line, the production company behind the film, was shutting the production down for two weeks. This means both cast and crew will be in quarantine for the time being. 

People have had their eyes on this film for a while now for a couple of reasons. Firstly, this film has an all-star cast lineup. In case you’re unfamiliar, it will feature Harry Styles, Nick Kroll, Florence Pugh, Kiki Layne, and even more. 

People have also been looking out for Don’t Worry Darling because it’s the latest Olivia Wilde directed film in the works. She first made her directing debut with the acclaimed movie Booksmart in 2019. Booksmart went on to win an Outstanding Media Award at GLAAD and saw excellent reviews from critics and fans. This has left fans yearning for more Olivia Wilde content!

The psychological thriller will take place in an isolated, California desert town in the 1950s. Other than these small plot and cast details, very little is known about the film! This hush has been leaving us eager to learn more. 

During times like these, it is important for fans to expect delays for upcoming shows and films they are looking forward to. This film is just the latest in the skew of productions being delayed due to positive tests. 

Just remember safety comes first and although we won’t know what crew member tested positive for the virus, we wish them a fast and well recovery!
