Booksmart may not have dominated at the box office (though it still made a profit), but it definitely announced Olivia Wilde as a filmmaker to watch and be excited about. And it has sparked a bidding war for her follow-up projects, one of which, thriller Don't Worry Darling has scored Shia LaBeouf, Florence Pugh and Chris Pine to star.

New Line snapped up the rights to make and distribute the film, which Booksmart co-writer Katie Silberman is working on, based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke. Don't Worry Darling is described as a psychological thriller which is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert, with Pugh as a housewife whose reality begins to crack, revealing a disturbing truth underneath. Wilde appears happy with her new cast...

Wilde will also appear in the film this time, and it's just one of her current To Do list items, which also include Perfect, chronicling gymnast Kerri Strug’s journey to the ’96 Atlanta Olympic games and an untitled Christmas comedy film.
