Work on the Harry Styles and Florence Pugh-starring Don't Worry Darling has halted after a positive COVID-19 test on set.

The Olivia Wilde-directed movie announced that the One Direction star would replace Shia LaBeouf in the thriller back in September, though it seems work on it has now come to a temporary halt.

As reported by Deadline, studio New Line Cinema have temporarily shut down production due to a member of production testing positive, with work stopping for 14 days and the cast quarantining, as standard procedure.

Don't Worry Darling, which also stars Chris Pine, is described as a "psychological thriller which is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert".

KiKi Layne, Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll also appear, while it also has a script written by Carey and Shane Van Dyke and rewritten by Wilde and Katie Silberman.

Meanwhile, Pugh is set to be seen next year in the delayed Black Widow, starring in the Marvel movie as Yelena Belova alongside Scarlett Johansson.

Speaking recently about bonding with the Marvel veteran, Pugh admitted: "I allowed myself to start taking the p**s out of Scarlett from day one, which was great.

"And then from that point onward, we kind of did it to each other. It was instant sisterly bonding."
