Movie star Harry Styles is back and better than ever! The former One Direction member is headed back to the big screen in Olivia Wilde‘s upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling, according to Deadline. Just when Directioners thought all hope of seeing the Fine Line crooner in another movie was totally lost, this news hit the web!
The publication also reported that Harry, 26, is set to replace Shia LaBeouf in the flick and will join actors Florence Pugh and Chris Pine. Although the plot has been kept under wraps, Don’t Worry Darling is “set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.”
The curly-haired cutie’s casting news comes weeks after rumors hit the web claiming that Harry was gearing up to star in Faster, Cheaper, Better with Brad Pitt. Despite speculation, Vanity Fair set the record straight and reported that the “Watermelon Sugar” singer would not appear in the movie. Brad’s reps then confirmed to ET Canada that these rumors were “false.”
As fans know, Harry first stepped onto the acting scene in 2017 when he starred as Alex in the Oscar-nominated World War II film Dunkirk. At the time, the movie’s director Christopher Nolan explained to the Daily Mail that he first cast Harry with no prior knowledge of his fame, but because “he has an old-fashioned face.”
“Harry sent in a tape, and we liked the tape … Harry’s features, ability and demeanor fitted right in,” the director said. “Harry’s very talented. I’ve no idea whether he wants to pursue acting, but he’s a natural.”
Unfortunately, following his role in Dunkirk, Harry revealed that he was ready to retire from acting.
“I feel very lucky to be a part of Dunkirk … I’d do this one again but it may be one and done … I’d do this one again,” Harry told Sky News in 2017. “I really enjoyed this. I’ve peaked too soon! There’s nowhere to go.”
Three years later and it sounds like the star is officially out of retirement!
