Don’t Worry, Darling will center on a 1950s housewife who uncovers a disturbing truth to her perfect life. Katie Silberman will rewrite the screenplay for Wilde. Shane and Cary Van Dyke wrote the original script.

The outlet notes that the studio acquired the project with the promise of “an aggressive and lucrative backend.” New Line was eager to work with Wilde following her directorial debut Booksmart. Wilde will also star in and produce the film, alongside Silbermann and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.

Part of the deal includes an asking budget around $20 million, fees for acting, directing, for Silberman’s rewrite, and the “rare” backend. The outlet reports that the filmmakers and producers of Don’t Worry, Darling stand to receive 50 percent in profit participation once the movie breaks even. The last time a deal was made like this was between Warner Bros. and Todd Phillips’ The Hangover.

In the acting realm, Wilde will next be seen on the big screen in Clint Eastwood’s The Ballad of Richard Jewell, based on real-life the American security guard who saved thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but is unjustly vilified by the press who falsely reported that he was a terrorist.
