Harry Styles has a new project in the works.

The 'Watermelon Sugar' singer has signed on for Olivia Wilde's next film Don't Worry, Darling, which also stars Florence Pugh as a housewife who discovers a disturbing truth while living in an isolated community in the California desert in the 1950s.

The 26-year-old will replace Shia LaBeouf, who pulled out of the film due to scheduling issues, according to Deadline.

Wilde, who also directed the 2019 hit film Booksmart, will also play a key supporting role.

"This cast is B A N A N A S. I'm the happiest director in the world. To say that I'm honored/excited/elated/s----- myself would be a massive understatement," the 36-year-old tweeted when the movie was first announced back in April.

The movie, which also includes Chris Pine and Dakota Johnson in its cast, will tentatively start filming in the fall amid the coronavirus pandemic.

This will not be Styles first appearance on the big screen. The former One Direction member made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan's epic 2017 thriller Dunkirk, playing a British soldier. He appeared alongside an ensemble cast which included Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy. The Brit reportedly beat out more than 100 other candidates auditioning for the part.

Nolan later stated he was unaware of the extent of his fame and that Styles was cast "because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table." The Daily Telegraph film critic, Robbie Collin, later praised Styles for his "bright, convicted, and unexpectedly not-at-all-jarring performance."
