Don’t Worry, Darling boasts a talented cast: what’s more, the first few snippets of information surrounding the project sound interesting too.

Whilst we already know that Olivia Wilde is working on a Sony movie set in its expanding live-action universe of Spider-Man movies, details of another project the director is also working on have begun to surface.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the helmer of the terrific Booksmart is also putting together an interesting cast for the previously-revealed thriller, Don’t Worry, Darling, set in an isolated desert community in 1950s California.

Little else is known about the plot at the moment, but casting is taking shape now, with Gemma Chan, Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine and Wilde herself all set to feature. Also joining the project is Kiki Layne, whom you may have seen in Netflix’s fun action romp, The Old Guard.

The film has been written by Wilde’s regular writing partner, Katie Silberman and is set to be released by New Line Cinema and Vertigo Entertainment.

Following the success of Booksmart, Wilde is undoubtedly a huge talent  behind the camera, and whilst it will no doubt be fun to see her contend with a superhero movie (which is could be Spider-Woman if the rumour mill is correct,) it’s equally great to hear that she’s still focusing on original projects where she isn’t boxed in by the constraints of working with somebody else’s characters.

More on this one as we have it.
