In addition to Pugh and Styles, the film also stars Gemma Chan, Chris Pine, Nick Kroll, KiKi Lane and Douglas Smith.
When Wilde shared the first looks of the film, she dedicated a post to Styles praising his "nuanced sense of humanity," and his ability to play the supporting role.
“Little known fact: most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films,” she captioned a photo of the musician and actor.
“The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories.
"No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognise why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight," she continued.
“Enter: Harry Styles, our ‘Jack’. Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant Florence Pugh to hold centre stage as our ‘Alice’, but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.”
