Taylor Swift is reportedly set to appear in the next film from director David O Russell – best known for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and ‘American Hustle’. So secretive is the production of said movie that the reports of Swift’s addition to the cast comes after filming has already been completed.

Rumoured to be a period comedy set in the Depression era titled ‘Canterbury Glass’, the film also stars Margot Robbie, Christian Bale and John David Washington, with other cast members including Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Chris Rock, Mike Myers and Timothy Olyphant.

Exactly what role Swift – or anyone else, really – will play is not clear. Hopefully it’ll be more successful than her previous outing in the disastrous 2019 film version of the musical ‘Cats’.

That said, she did get Grammy and Golden Globe nominations for ‘Beautiful Ghosts’, the song she co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd-Webber for ‘Cats’. She was also nominated for the Favourite Movie Actress prize at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. These were some of the few award nominations that film received that didn’t include the word ‘worst’.

‘Canterbury Glass’ is already being tipped to win Oscars next year though, so maybe this will be the film that transforms her into a bona fide actor.
