One Direction singer Harry Styles will join the cast of "Don't Worry Darling," a psychological thriller by Olivia Wilde, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Styles, whose castmates include Chris Pine ("Wonder Woman 1984") and Florence Pugh ("Black Widow"), will replace Shia LaBeouf, who dropped out of the production because of scheduling conflicts.

With production set for this Fall, "Don't Worry Darling" is a period piece set in the 1950s, "at an isolated, utopian community in the California desert." The film will be distributed by Newline, and directed and produced by Wilde, with a screenplay by Katie Silberman, the writer behind Wilde's debut film "Booksmart."
