The new movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ which stars Harry Styles alongside Florence Pugh and Chris Pine, production has been halted and the stars forced into isolation after a positive for COVID-19 was recorded on set.
On Wednesday as Harry was shooting the film in Los Angeles, a member of the production tested positive for coronavirus. A representative for New Line film studio confirmed the report and stated that they’d shut down as soon as they’d found out about the positive test.
A source revealed that it wasn’t “a member of the principal cast but someone who was in close enough proximity to them that the shutdown was deemed necessary to find out if anyone else on the production has been exposed.”
Currently, no one else has tested positive at this point, but work on the film has been halted for about 14 days, with everyone who worked on the movie placed into immediate isolation as per Los Angeles’ COVID-19 guidelines. Production will resume as soon as the quarantine period is over.
‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ is a film which is described as a “psychological thriller set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.” It’s a story about an unhappy housewife, played by Florence, who questions her sanity when strange things start happening. Harry stars as her husband who’s “hiding a dark secret,” while Chris plays the leader of a nearby cult-like worksite.
The movie is being directed by Oliva Wilde.
