New Line is the lucky winner of Olivia Wilde's next directorial project, "Don't Worry Darling."
The studio won the deal to finance and distribute the psychological thriller, in what Deadline calls "one of the widest ranging film spec script auctions in years." Among the 18 bidders were Netflix, Apple, and Blumhouse.
Wilde recently made her directorial debut with the acclaimed teen dramedy "Booksmart." She's embarking on a different path with "Don't Worry Darling," which is about a 1950s housewife whose reality begins to crack, revealing a disturbing truth underneath.
Kate Silberman, the co-writer of "Booksmart," will rewrite the script by Shane & Carey Van Dyke.
Wilde and Silberman also recently sold a holiday comedy project to Universal.
