Wilde‘s direction and Katie‘s retouch the combo worked great and appealed to the producers, which led to 18 bid auctions for “Don’t Worry Darling.” Chris and Florence will be seen together onscreen for the second time after “Outlaw King” (2018). Harry Styles made his acting debut with Dunkirk favorably impressed the creators, which offered him the project to replace Shia LaBeouf after three years of his debut.
