The singer songwriter’s songs have always been cinematic, but can she call action?
“Taylor is a once in a generation artist and storyteller. It is a genuine joy and privilege to collaborate with her as she embarks on this exciting and new creative journey,” said Searchlight Pictures’ Presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield.
Taylor Swift has written an original screenplay, the title or subject matter as yet unannounced. Disney-owned Searchlight Pictures will finance the making of the feature film, with Swift in the director’s chair.
This follows Swift’s two previous short films that she has made for her songs:
ALL TOO WELL (reportedly in the running for an Academy Award)
Swift has famously dated a lot of actors, then written songs about them, which must mean that her casting options are somewhat limited … but not really.
Will Swift do a Madonna or a Rob Zombie? Hopefully, neither, but we can already hear the masses of Swifties getting excited.
