Taylor Swift cast in David O. Russell’s upcoming period film



The cast for this still-untitled movie just keeps getting more star-studded. 

Pop superstar Taylor Swift has been cast in director David O. Russell’s upcoming movie, Collider reported Tuesday. Little is known about the secretive project which still hasn’t revealed its plot, but anticipation is growing for the period film as more and more A-listers are added to its cast. 

Indeed, Swift, 31, is only the most recent big-name addition to the “American Hustle” director’s flick: She is joining Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, Rami Malek, John David Washington, Zoe Saldana, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Robert De Niro, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alessandro Nivola.

Instagram celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi was the first to report that the “Folklore” singer would be involved in the project, which is backed by 20th Century Studios and New Regency, Collider reported. It does not yet have a release date. 

Russell’s last film was the 2015 biographical drama “Joy,” starring Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro, and telling the story of a TV entrepreneur.

Swift, an 11-time Grammy winner, recently graced the silver screen in the much maligned 2019 live-action adaptation of the stage musical “Cats” as Bombalurina, a feline femme fatale. 

She also starred in two 2020 documentaries, Netflix’s take on her life, “Miss Americana,” and “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions,” which she both directed and produced. 

Last month, a sequined crop top-clad Swift met “Driver’s License” singer Olivia Rodrigo in person at the BRIT Awards — much to fans’ delight. In April, following the release of her re-recording of her own Grammy-winning 2008 album “Fearless,” she released a slew of new merchandise offerings including a “Capture It, Remember It” vault key necklace. 

Representatives for Swift and Russell did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
