Harry Styles film Don't Worry Darling plunged into crisis after crew member tests positive for COVID


A new film starring Harry Styles has reportedly been plunged into chaos after a crew member tested postitive for Covid-19, causing production to ground to a halt.

Hours before the apparent positive test, the singer and actor, 26, was spotted arriving on the set of the Olivia Wilde-helmed Don’t Worry, Darling on Wednesday.

His co-star Chris Pine, 40, was also spotted sipping a coffee on set as he reported for filming, before shooting was ‘called off’ for safety reasons.

The stars, including Harry, Chris and Florence Pugh have been apparently been asked to quarantine as a safety precaution.

Deadline has reported that New Line paused filming when a positive test came up during routine testing, one of several precautions in place.

Although a source said that it wasn’t anyone from the principal cast that tested positive, it was someone who came in close contact with them, which made the temporary lockdown necessary.

The insider claimed everyone on set immediately isolated, and nobody else has tested positive yet, as production halts for the required 14 days.
