Florence Pugh is teaming up with Alexander Skarsgård once again for her next film role.

The in-demand, Oscar-nominated actress has been tapped to play the lead role in the psychological thriller The Pack alongside Skarsgård, who will also serve double duty as the director.

The announcement comes on the heels of the drama on the set of Don’t Worry Darling, which included rumors that Pugh feuded with director Olivia Wilde over the leading lady’s chemistry with co-star Harry Styles right before he became romantically involved with Wilde.

Reunited: Florence Pugh and Alexander Skarsgård are set to star in the upcoming film The Pack, which will also have the lading man serve as the director

Skarsgård will be helming the shoot from an original screenplay written by Rose Gilroy, the daughter of writer-director Dan Gilroy and actress René Russo, who’s best known for The Edge of Sleep (2019) and Bella (2019) and Project Artemis, which is currently in production.

The Pack follows ‘a group of documentarians who brave the remote wilderness of Alaska in an effort to save a nearly extinct species of wolves,’ according to Deadline.

‘When the crew is brought back together at a prestigious awards ceremony, tensions flare as a deadly truth threatens to unravel their work. 

And while ‘the team lived through the harsh elements of the wild,’ the synopsis goes on to tease whether they will ‘survive the night’ of the ceremony due to ‘a secret they share.’

Production set: The Pack is scheduled to begin shooting principal photography in March 2023.; the two stars are pictured while promoting The Little Drummer Girl in July 2018

The project reunites Pugh and Skarsgård, who starred together in the British television miniseries The Little Drummer Girl (2018), alongside Michael Shannon, Michael Moshonov, Simona Brown, Clare Holman and Charles Dance.

The Little Drummer Girl, based on the 1983 of the same name by John le Carré, told the story of an aspiring English actress who is recruited by Mossad to infiltrate a Palestinian group plotting terrorism in Europe in 1979.

The six episode spy-thriller drama first aired on BBC One in the UK in October 2018 and then on AMC in the US a month later.

Vulture reported Pugh and Wilde’s reported feud resulted in them getting into a ‘screaming match’ on the Don’t Worry Darling set.

The publication reported that Pugh got upset with Wilde and her ‘frequent and unexplained absences’ when she and Styles ‘would just disappear.’

But some 40 members of the crew eventually came forward and disputed the on-set tension and called it ‘completely false,’ as reported by Vulture and People.

Another on-set conflict involved Shia LaBeouf, who was fired by Wilde over poor behavior and clashing with the crew. 

However, LaBeouf denied these claims in August 2022, stating that he quit the film despite Wilde’s efforts to keep him onboard.
