Taylor Swift will make her feature film directorial debut for Searchlight Pictures


The American singer has announced that she will direct and write a film for the famous American production house.

Taylor Swift, an award-winning American singer-songwriter and pop star, has decided to try her hand as a director as well. The news was announced by the American magazine Variety.

Swift is not a beginner in this field, in fact, the singer already has some experience as a director, she directed her own documentary film Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, and the music videos for some of her songs, All Too Well: The Short Film, and also The Man.

According to Variety, Swift will make her feature film directorial debut, which will be produced by Searchlight Pictures, the production company behind films like Nomadland (by Chloé Zhao) and The Shape of Water (by Guillermo del Toro), and the very recent The Menu and The Banshees of Inisherin. 

In addition to directing the film, Swift will also write the screenplay from her own original idea. Other details such as the cast, the plot, or the production start or release dates in cinemas, have not yet been revealed.

“Taylor [Swift] is the kind of artist and storyteller that there is only one in a generation. It is truly a joy and a privilege to collaborate with her as she embarks on this exciting and creative new journey,” said David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield, presidents of Searchlight Pictures.

The news of her debut as a director shouldn't be surprising given the constant promotion that the American singer is doing for her music video All Too Well. In fact, Swift is promoting the video as a short film in order to take it to the Oscars in the Best Short Film category.

Taylor Swift is not new to the big screen, in fact, she has participated in several films as an actress, years ago she was part of the romantic comedy Date with Love, and recently she could be seen in Cats (directed by Tom Hopper) and Amsterdam (film by David O. Russell), the latter two films panned by both critics and audiences.
