We’ve been talking to you for a long time about Don’t Worry Darling, the project being frankly exciting for many reasons. Already, because it’s Olivia Wilde’s return behind the camera after the brilliant Booksmart. That, among others, we find Harry Styles and Florence Pugh. And that there is a 1950s atmosphere mixed with anxiety, which has hooked us from the start. It is even for us one of the films not to be missed this month of September. Nevertheless, it connects the disappointments and the bad buzz, sometimes useless, sometimes funny, too often forgetting the cinema, but giving a pace to the promotion of the film a little chaotic. If you missed an episode, here’s a little recap. Conflicts, deception and spitting It all started with a sentence uttered by the director, Olivia Wilde, on August 24 at Variety. She said there that she herself asked for the dismissal of Shia LaBeouf before the start of filming (mid 2020). Accentuating what she was already saying in February, where she said she wanted a “no assholes policy” on her shoot. The actor, who then had the central role at the start, is indeed in the midst of accusations of gender-based and sexual violence issued by FKA Twigs. The filmmaker then prefers to “protect” Florence Pugh and oust him – he will later be replaced by Harry Styles. In any case, that’s what she says. Since two days later, the actor tells, still at Variety, that he left on his own because he regretted the absence of rehearsals for the actors, which he found unprofessional. Worse. A video comes out on the Internet, we see Wilde calling LaBeouf and insisting that he come back, indicating that she wants to fix things with “Miss Flo”, understand Florence Pugh. Basically, it started badly. And that’s not to mention the words through interposed interviews, where Florence Pugh began in August in an interview for Harper’s Bazaar to express her discomfort with the hypersexualization of her character, speaking in particular of a sequence of oral sex presented in the trailer. A scene that was really close to the heart of the filmmaker. Added to this are pure gossip, not very interesting at first glance, but which could explain the situation a little more. Olivia Wilde was married to Jason Sudeikis. Remember: last April, when she was going to unveil the first images of her new feature on the Cinemacon stage, Wilde received the divorce papers in front of an entire room. We didn’t know much, it’s now a little clearer. Fairly quickly, a story between the director and the newcomer, Harry Styles, started during the filming – or at least, revealed itself in front of the paparazzi goals for the first time at this time, even as Jason Sudeikis and their children occasionally came on set. A source explained that this made teams, and in particular Florence Pugh, uncomfortable. You will not be surprised to read that in the wake of this information, Florence Pugh had indicated that she would do little or no promotion. , For the movie. Worse: she would only come to Venice for the red carpet and the official presentation of the film and, even there, she avoided the director’s eyes all along, and would have left the room after three minutes of applause. In fact, she would do neither interviews nor round table. Not even a press conference. In question ? The filming of the Dune sequel would take him too long – while Timothée Chalamet has been parading in the City of Lovers for a few days. It could have stopped there, but that was without counting on a video of the standing ovation in which one could believe that Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine – another explanation being also possible on the fact that Pine was simply looking for his glasses which he had just put down and which could have slipped in his armchair. is given to their heart’s content. “Chris Pine at the premiere of Don’t Worry Darling” “My dad separating my sister and I so we stop fighting and behave ourselves.” “The note ‘I didn’t spit on that man’ that Harry Styles is going to have to be forced to tweet is already becoming the biggest in history.” “Ryan Murphy today considering who Sarah Paulson will be able to to play in ‘FEUD: Don’t Worry Darling’”Still, during this time, no one talks about the film prop speak. And that’s a shame.
