Don’t Worry Darlingthe film directed by Olivia Wilde will arrive in Italian cinemas on September 22nd. The film sees as protagonists Florence Pugh And Harry Styles. In the cast we find the same Wilde, Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne and Chris Pine. Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles) are lucky enough to live in the idealized community of Victory, the city created by an experimental company that houses, together with their families, the men who work on the top-secret Victory project. The 1950s social optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank (Pine) – halfway between a visionary businessman and a motivational life coach – fixes every aspect of daily life in this utopian place in the middle of the desert.
While the husbands spend each day inside the Victory Project headquarters working on “innovative materials development”, their wives, including Frank’s stylish partner Shelley (Chan), spend their time enjoying the beauty, the luxury and debauchery of their community. Life is perfect, and every need of the residents is met by the company. All that is asked in return is discretion and unconditional commitment to the cause of the Victory project. But when cracks begin to appear in their idyllic life, revealing something sinister beneath the glamorous facade, Alice can’t help but wonder exactly what they’re doing at Victory and why. How much will Alice be willing to lose to bring out what is really going on in this paradise?
Don’t Worry Darling: Did Harry Styles Earn More Than Florence Pugh? Olivia Wilde denies rumors about cast salaries
Don’t Worry Darling is already one of the most talked about films of the year. According to various magazines, Harry Styles would have been paid more than his colleague and co-star Florence Pugh. Her salary would be three times that of the actress. According to Showbiz Galore, Pugh earned $700,000 for the film, while Harry Styles earned $2.5 million.
In a recent interview with Variety, Olivia Wilde denied the news, stating: « There were a lot of things out there that, for the most part, I didn’t pay attention to. But the absurdity of the made-up clickbait story and the subsequent backlash regarding a non-existent pay gap between our lead and supporting actors really blew my mind. I’m a woman who’s been in this industry for over 20 years, and it’s something I’ve fought for myself and for others, especially as a director. There is absolutely no validity in those claims.”
