Taylor Swift is getting behind the camera to make her debut directing a feature-length film, and just in case you didn’t think T-Swift couldn’t be any more talented, she wrote the friggin script!
Although there has been no word on the plot and casting hasn’t been announced yet. The movie is being made by Searchlight, who brought us 'Slumdog Millionaire' and '12 Years a Slave'.
Searchlight Presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield said in a statement: “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.”
Swift just made her official big screen acting debut in the film 'Amsterdam' earlier this year and based on her performance, there's no doubt that her skills in the movie biz are top-notch!
She also recently received awards and recognition for her directorial work on her own music videos, including the 13-minute ‘All Too Well’ short film which appears on the re-released album Red (Taylor's Version).
Swift recently won the best direction award at the 2022 MTV VMAs for ‘All Too Well’, making her the only solo artist to win the award twice. She previously won for her work on the music video for her track "The Man."
'All Too Well: The Short Film' also premiered in 2022 at the Tribeca Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, and is excitingly eligible for Best Live Action Short Film nominations at the upcoming 95th Academy Awards ceremony in March 2023.
We’re still waiting on more announcements for the new project, but we can't wait to see what happens. We are confident that it will be a huge success!
