The Fundamentals Of Production

[Water Consumption]

EXCLUSIVE: New Line tonight temporarily shut down production on the Olivia Wilde -directed film Don’t Worry Darling when a member of the production tested positive for COVID-19. The studio confirmed it happened, something that is an occupational hazard for any film or TV show that is shooting right now. They shut down right away. The film stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles , Chris Pine , KiKi Layne, Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll with Wilde playing a supporting role. The film has a script by Carey and Shane Van Dyke that was rewritten by Wilde’s Booksmart partner Katie Silberman. Pic was shooting downtown Los Angeles when this happened today. The film has been following strict protocols, and the positive test came up during routine testing. The studio would  not disclose who came up positive, but I am told it is not a member of the principal cast but someone who was in close enough proximity to them that the shutdown was best site deemed necessary to find out if anyone else on the production has been exposed. No one else has tested positive at this point.
