Harry Styles has been tapped to join the star-studded thriller Don’t Worry Darling under the direction of Olivia Wilde, who is also producing and starring in the film.

Warner Bros. executives have been eyeing Styles for another project after his acting debut in Dunkirk, Deadline reported on Sept. 11.

The pop star reportedly impressed Wilde and costar Florence Pugh (Midsommar) in an initial meeting, sources said.

Styles took over from Shia LeBeouf, who left the project due to a scheduling conflict.
