In 2018, actor Olivia Wilde won over a new set of fans with her directorial debut, the high school comedy ‘Booksmart’. The actor, who is most famously known for her role in ‘House MD’, created a film that received such rave reviews that audiences have since been waiting for her to show her magic again. And that wait is over. Wilde is soon to bring to us another film. This one is called ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’.

Release date

New Line is planning a fall production start for the film. No release date for ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’ has been announced yet.

Plot

Little has been revealed about the movie’s plot, as of yet. ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’ is reportedly set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert. The film, per IMDb, has been described as a psychological thriller, and it revolves around an unhappy wife.

Creator

Katie Silberman, who worked with Wilde on her directorial debut 'Booksmart', wrote the screenplay based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke.

New Line reportedly bought ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’ in August 2019, after 18 bids were submitted for the project with Wilde and Silberman attached. That deal came on the heels of ‘Booksmart’.
