Though she has not been formally offered the role, the 'Mean' singer has reportedly been circling the Katie Jacobs-directed drama project for months.
Taylor Swift will likely land a prestigious big screen role in the near future. After taking part in the voice cast ensemble of "The Lorax", the country singer is currently circling the role of Joni Mitchell in an upcoming drama called "Girls Like Us".
According to Variety, Swift has yet to receive a formal offer to play the veteran Canadian singer/songwriter. The movie itself will be based on Sheila Weller's book of the same title, which focuses on the music career of Mitchell as well as Carly Simon and Carole King.
The 22-year-old singer has reportedly been linked to the true story movie project for several months. It was also said that some other actresses have auditioned to tackle the part of Simon and King. Among those who were circling the film was "Midnight in Paris" star Alison Pill who auditioned to play King.
"Girls Like Us" will be directed by "House M.D." producer Katie Jacobs, while the screenplay will be provided by John Sayles. "Transformers" producer Lorenzo di Bonavetura will produce the drama, which still hasn't got the greenlight despite being tentatively scheduled to kick off production later this year.
Swift recently joined Zac Efron in the voice cast for Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax". Back in 2010, she took part in an ensemble romantic comedy "Valentine's Day", while in 2009, she appeared as herself in Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana: The Movie".
