The bitter row between Pugh and Wilde is the latest drama surrounding the yet-to-be-released movie. The director started an all-out war when she claimed that she replaced Shia LaBeouf with Styles due to his “combative energy" on the set.

Wilde also claimed his “process was not conducive to the ethos that [she] demands in [her] productions."

However, LaBeouf hit back, alleging he quit and wasn't fired. The actor also brought receipts, including a video of Wilde begging him to come back on the project.

“I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo,” she could be heard saying, clearly referring to Pugh. “If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace.”

"I am a little confused about the narrative that I was fired, however," LaBeouf wrote in a letter to Wilde published in Vanity Fair. "You and I both know the reasons for my exit. I quit your film because your actors & I couldn't find time to rehearse."

"I know that you are beginning your press run for DWD and that the news of my firing is attractive clickbait," the actor continued. "But, speaking of my daughter, I often think about the news articles she will read when she is literate."

Wilde's claims about LaBeouf and her on-set feud with Pugh aren't the only things that have hijacked her film. Instead of promoting Don't Worry Darling the traditional way, the director has let her personal life, including her custody battle with her ex Jason Sudeikis, take over headlines ahead of its release on September 23.
