AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift is lending her star power to David O. Russell's upcoming movie. The singer/actress is joining the star-studded cast of the five-time Oscar nominated filmmaker's new film, which is being developed at New Regency.
The 11-time Grammy Award-winning artist will appear alongside Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana. Robert De Niro, Mike Myers, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Shannon, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alessandro Nivola will also star in the movie.
Swift has apparently quietly filmed her scene for the movie, as it's reported that production on the film has wrapped. Details of the project, including title and the storyline, are still kept under tight wraps as New Regency refused to comment on the news about Swift's involvement.
New Regency's Arnon Milchan is producing alongside Matthew Budman and Anthony Katagas. 20th Century Studios will be handling the distribution, but no release date is set for the untitled movie just yet.
Russell received critical acclaims for his films "The Fighter" (2010), "Silver Linings Playbook" (2012) and "American Hustle" (2013). He worked with Bale and De Niro in two of those movies. His last movie "Joy", which was released in 2015, however, received mixed reviews, with critics praising Jennifer Lawrence's performance but criticized the writing and pace of the film. Lawrence also starred in two of Russell's critically-acclaimed films "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle".
As for Swift, she has been starring in such films as "Valentine's Day" (2010) and "The Giver" (2014). She lent her voice for animated musical fantasy comedy "The Lorax" (2012) and had her latest acting gig in "Cats" (2019), the live-action adaptation of stage musical of the same title. The movie, however, was panned by critics, who criticized the visual effects, editing and performances, and was a box office bomb after earning only $75.5 million while it reportedly cost $80-$100 million for production.
