Taylor Swift has joined the epic cast of d-bag David O. Russell’s new film

Taylor Swift has spent the past year and a half showing people that everything she touches turns to gold in the music industry. I’ve lost count of how many wins she’s stacked up just in 2020 and 2021, and that’s not even counting all of the wins she’s had before. Hitting pause on touring because of the pandemic, and having that time to reset her career has all been great for Tay. And she’s ready to make another attempt to conquer Hollywood! Taylor has already appeared in a handful of films, but now she’s joining the cast of a major director’s production.

The cast for this still-untitled movie just keeps getting more star-studded. Pop superstar Taylor Swift has been cast in director David O. Russell’s upcoming movie, Collider reported Tuesday. Little is known about the secretive project which still hasn’t revealed its plot, but anticipation is growing for the period film as more and more A-listers are added to its cast.

Indeed, Swift, 31, is only the most recent big-name addition to the “American Hustle” director’s flick: She is joining Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, Rami Malek, John David Washington, Zoe Saldana, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Robert De Niro, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alessandro Nivola.

Instagram celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi was the first to report that the “Folklore” singer would be involved in the project, which is backed by 20th Century Studios and New Regency, Collider reported. It does not yet have a release date.

Russell’s last film was the 2015 biographical drama “Joy,” starring Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro, and telling the story of a TV entrepreneur.

Swift, an 11-time Grammy winner, recently graced the silver screen in the much maligned 2019 live-action adaptation of the stage musical “Cats” as Bombalurina, a feline femme fatale.

On the scale of Madonna to Tupac, where does Taylor Swift rate as a musician-turned-actor? Tupac was such a talented actor, you guys. And Madonna is such a terrible actor. So I find Taylor sort of in-between. She’s not bad, at all. That being said, David O. Russell is not the one. I know Jennifer Lawrence loves him and they have that crazy unprofessional relationship, but Russell has a long history of being physically and verbally abusive to actors and employees. There’s a reason why he hasn’t worked in six years, you know?
