Taylor Swift has joined the loaded cast of David O. Russell’s next film set at New Regency.
Already in the vehicle are Oscar winners Rami Malek, Robert De Niro and Christian Bale alongside Hollywood favourites Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Zoe Saldana, Michael Shannon and Timothy Olyphant.
This will mark the first Russell feature on the big screen since his 2015 movie ‘Joy’ starring Jennifer Lawrence. Russell will direct the project from his own penned script. Russell is again producing alongside Matthew Budman.
Details surrounding the script as well as its title are being kept under wraps, with production already closed in Los Angeles. 20th Century will be behind the film’s release but is yet to announce a scheduled date for it.
Aside Swift’s mega music career, the singer has also made some appearances in Hollywood, with her last project being the musical adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage show ‘Cats’ opposite Judi Dench. Swift’s other film credits include the 2010 romantic comedy ‘Valentine’s Day’ and ‘The Giver’. She has also played a voice role in the animated Dr. Seuss movie ‘The Lorax’.
At the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, Swift was the central focus of the Lana Wilson directed documentary ‘Miss Americana’. The project provided intimate details about Swift’s life and career as well as backstage and onstage footage of her concerts. It was later placed at Netflix following its successful reviews.
