Florence Pugh (Little Drummer Girl) was everywhere in 2019, and it doesn’t seem like this “it” girl is slowing down anytime soon.
Actress-turned-director Olivia Wilde (Booksmart) has a new project in the works, and she is beyond excited to have cast Pugh in the forthcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling. Wilde turned to Twitter to share the news:
This cast is B A N A N A S. I’m the happiest director in the world. To say that I’m honored/excited/elated/shitting myself would be a massive understatement. https://t.co/1j7vDpelou

“Excited” might be an understatement, with Wilde describing this casting as “B A N A N A S.” It’s not just Pugh who has signed on, but you can also look for Shia LaBeouf and Chris Pine.
Wilde’s Booksmart co-writer Katie Silberman will handle writing duties, based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke. The psychological thriller revolves around a housewife (Pugh) in 1950s California. It’s described as an isolated, utopian community, set in the desert. When a disturbing truth is revealed, her reality begins to crack.
Wilde will also appear in the movie, but her role has yet to be announced.
