The Fine Line singer, 26, made his acting debut in 2017 film Dunkirk and producers were apparently impressed with his efforts in the war flick.

It has long been questioned what Harry's next acting project would be and fan's prayers have been answered as he is believed to have signed his next film.

Harry's co-stars in the thriller include Florence Pugh [Little Women] and Chris Pine [Star Trek], who both signed on to the film earlier this year.

Sources told Deadline after impressing director Olivia Wilde and Florence during an initial meeting, the feeling was mutual to get him to sign on.

Don't Worry, Darling is the next directing outing for Olivia, who previously directed Booksmart and is slated to be the head of a new Marvel film.

Little has been announced about the film as yet, however it will be set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert, according to the publication.

The screenplay was written by Katie Silberman, who also wrote Booksmart, based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke.

The film production is rumoured to be starting this autumn as New Line Cinema has apparently listed it as a high priority, after bagging the rights in a heated bidding war.

The news comes after it was reported Harry has struck up a friendship with fellow actor Emma Corrin, as she expects her 'life to change dramatically' when series four airs. 

The actress, 24, who will play Princess Diana in the forthcoming season, is believed to have met the Watermelon Sugar hitmaker, at one of his gigs last year. 

But while there is reportedly 'nothing romantic' between the pair, Emma and Harry 'know loads of the same people'.
