Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling halts production after a member of the production was tested positive for coronavirus. The studio confirmed the news as it becomes difficult for any film to be shot.
The cast of the movie, Harry Styles, Chris Pine, Florence Pugh, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, and Gemma Chan along with Olivia are all quarantined. The movie script is written by Carey and Shane Van Dyke and was rewritten by Olivia and Katie Silberman.
Like any other film set, the cast had also been following safety protocols as the positive test came forward during routine testing. However, the cast and crew refuse to reveal who tested positive for the virus. According to Deadline, it is not one of the members of the cast but to someone who was in close proximity to the person who is tested positive.
Which is why the shut down has been deemed as a necessary measure to figure out if anyone else from the cast and crew has also been exposed. However, according to Deadline, no one else has been tested positive at the moment.
The production for the film will have to be shut down for 14 days according to the standard quarantine period. According to Deadline, when the test came as positive, everyone on set isolated immediately. The production had started last month and was just a few weeks into filming.
The cast was spotted as fans went crazy over Harry Style’s new slick look. This will not be the first time productions had to be shut down for positive coronavirus tests. Tom Hanks had tested positive days before the filming for the Elvis Presley film directed by Baz Luhrmann, was going to start.
Harry Drives Fans Wild As He Sports New Look
The production of The Batman was the recent movie that had to be shut down as the main lead, Robert Pattinson had contracted the virus. The production for the Olivia Wilde-film will resume as soon as the quarantine period recommended in the safety protocol ends.
Harry had signed the film back in September driving fans wild as he joined the cast of Don’t Worry Darling. He had replaced Shia LeBeouf who could not do it because of scheduling conflicts. The movie is set in the 50s as Florence plays an unhappy housewife; and she begins to notice some peculiar occurrences in her California desert community.
