The very successful singer of this generation, Taylor Swift, has not only surprised all of us with her amazing quality of music, but also numerous unforgettable hits after hits. After the huge success in her music career, Swift is all set to star in a new Hollywood movie. Let’s see what this is about.
After the debacle of her previous movie, Cats, in 2019, the reports say that Taylor is giving her acting another shot with David O’Connell’s new movie, titled as Canterbury Glass. David O’Connell is known for directing very successful movies like American Hustle, Joy, Silver Lining Playbook, etc.
His last movie was Joy in 2015, starring Jennifer Lawrence. Now after six years, this Academy Award winning director is coming back with his new movie, which is still under production. He has won five Academy Awards in his career, and Jennifer Lawrence who starred in three of his movies, have been nominated in Oscars for all those three movies.
If the rumors are true and Taylor Swift is going to join the cast of Canterbury Glass, she will be casted along with the A star Hollywood actors and actresses such as Christian Bale, John David Washington, Anya Taylor Joy, Margot Robbie, Rami Malek, etc.
We know Christian Bale from David O’Connell’s “American Hustle”, while John David Washington was last seen in the Netflix movie “Malcolm and Maree”, along with Zendaya. We know Anya Taylor-Joy from her hit Netflix miniseries, The Queen’s Gambit, while Margot Robbie has stunned everyone with her characters of Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad”, as well as Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya”. Also, we know Rami Malek for his Oscar winning performance in “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
Canterbury Glass is said to be a story set in the Great Depression and is about a doctor and a lawyer who form an unlikely partnership. It is said that the movie has wrapped up its production, and if this is true, it won’t take long for it to be released in the theatres. But we don’t know what COVID-19 situation is going to affect the schedule. As of now, a lot of things have been kept secret, and we have no clue what kind of character Taylor is going to portray. The movie is said to be distributed by 20th Century Studios.
Taylor was last seen in the movie Cats, where she played the character of Bombalurina. She also sang a song called “Beautiful Ghosts”, which was nominated for Globe Globes and Grammys. Although the song was a success, the movie was a huge disaster as it received a lot of negative reviews and couldn’t collect good box office collections.
The 31 year old singer also released 2 surprise albums, Folklore and Evermore, in 2020, raving positive reviews. She also won Album of the Year for Folklore at the Grammys last year. She is also releasing her own version of many of her old songs as Taylor’s Version. Plus, she has also played a supporting character of Rosemary in the 2014 movie, The Giver. Now, we have to wait if she is going to sing any new songs for Canterbury Glass.
It looks like the giants of current music are going to leave their mark in Hollywood movies too. Last time we saw singer Lady Gaga in the movie, A Star is Born, along with Bradley Cooper, for which she won Oscar and Grammys. Gaga is also set to star in a new movie called “House of Gucci.” While other singers such as Harry Styles and Ariana Grande are also set to star in movies like “Don’t Worry Darling” and “Don’t Look Up” respectively.
