The Matthew Vaughn-directed film will feature the country crooner as a girl, who escapes after being kidnapped by Samuel L. Jackson's character.
Taylor Swift has been offered a role in a spy movie. A source told British's Mirror that the 23-year-old country star is joining Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, David Beckham and Michael Caine as cast member in Matthew Vaughn's huge budget film called "The Secret Service".
The film will feature Taylor as a girl who escapes after being kidnapped by a villain, set to be played by Jackson. A production source said that the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer would have to "have martial arts training in order to convincingly kick Samuel L. Jackson's butt."
"It will be Taylor's biggest challenge to date but she cannot wait," the source continued. Another thing that Swift cannot wait is to work with Beckham. The source added, "She is also looking forward to working with David Beckham whom she thinks is amazing looking, but taken."
Of why Swift was chosen to join the project, the source explained, "Matthew looked at a number of actresses to play the part before settling on Taylor, apparently she was a natural on the big screen. She's also someone fresh and unseen in Hollywood terms which was massively appealing."
Jane Goldman is on board to pen the screenplay of the film, which has been described as a 21st century 007. Based on the Mark Millar comic books, "The Secret Service" is expected to be released in November 2014.
