Deadline recently revealed that New Line has temporarily shut down production on Don’t Worry Darling, directed by Olivia Wilde. It is because a crew member has contacted COVID-19, confirmed the studio as they put an immediate hold on the project. The positive test came during the routine testing which is now mandatory. The makers were said to be following strict protocols on the sets.
The company has not disclosed who has been tested positive for COVID-19, but it is said that the person is not from the principal cast. However, it is someone who was in close enough proximity to them that the shut down was deemed necessary to find out if anyone else on the production has been exposed. Currently, there is no news of others being contacted with the novel virus.

Set in the 1950s, it will show an unhappy housewife who discovers a disturbing truth, while her loving husband hides a dark secret.
There have been several cases where production was stopped due to positive COVID-19 tests.
