Don’t Worry Darling will be coming to a small screen near you.
The psychological thriller directed by Olivia Wilde will reportedly be available to stream on HBO Max on Nov. 7. And the film is already available to purchase on digital platforms such as Amazon, Apple, YouTube and Vudu.
Don’t Worry Darling made its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film festival on Sept. 5 and debuted in U.S. theaters on Sept. 23, grossing $83 million at the box office. The film opened to mixed reviews, with a 74% approval rating from moviegoers and a 38% approval rating from critics.
The screenplay for Don’t Worry Darling was originally a spec script written by brothers Carey and Shane Van Dyke on the 2019 Black List. Katie Silberman was brought on to do a rewrite, which became the official screenplay. The movie is set in the 1950s in the California desert, where a housewife (Florence Pugh) starts to suspect her husband (Harry Styles) and the idyllic community she lives in have a sinister secret.
Don’t Worry Darling has become infamous for the off-screen drama that dominated the media months before its release. In a cover feature with Variety, Wilde revealed she had fired Shia LaBeouf (originally cast in the male lead role) due to poor behavior and clashing with cast and crew. LeBeouf shot back, disputing Wilde’s version of events, claiming he quit the film due to lack of rehearsal time.
Pugh refused to attend the Venice Film Festival press conference, opting instead to make a grand entrance on the red carpet.
