Production on Harry Styles and Florence Pugh Led Film ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Halted Due to Positive COVID-19 Test
Production on the highly-anticipated film, Don’t Worry Darling, has been paused after a member of the crew tested positive for COVID-19.
After rumors circulated on the internet about the possibility of exposure on set, Deadline officially reported the news Wednesday night. It was revealed that everyone involved on set went into immediate quarantine after the positive test was revealed.
The movie, which began filming in late October, is reportedly ceasing production until the mandatory quarantine period ends in two weeks.
Don’t Worry Darling isn’t the first highly-publicized film to suffer a COVID-19 delay, as the newest Batman adaption was paused after star Robert Pattinson tested positive for the virus in September.

The cast was photographed earlier this week on set and seen following COVID-19 protocols with face shields and masks in place. As of right now, no one else on the cast and crew has been revealed to have the virus.
The psychological thriller, which follows an unhappy housewife in the 1950s, stars Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, KiKi Layne, Gemma Chan, and more. Director Olivia Wilde is also appearing in the film in a supporting role.
The film’s production company, New Line Cinema, ultimately made the decision to delay production on the film.
