Wilde confirmed the news on Instagram, sharing photos of Styles and Pugh, writing, “Very proud to work with these fine folks.”
When Pugh learned the news, she reposted shared her excitement of Styles joining the project.

“Don’t Worry Darling” is Wilde’s second project as a director, following her successful debut of 2019’s “Booksmart” starring Beanie Feldstein.
