Taylor Swift Signs First Major Movie Role With James Corden
The pop superstar is finally making her leap across to the big screen...
Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in the world as she propelled herself from country singer to pop dominateur and now she's got her eyes on the box office.
While she's won countless awards for her blockbuster, record-breaking music videos, she has only ever had small supporting roles in film... until now.
The Reputation singer has been cast in the upcoming film adaptation of the musical Cats, written by no other than Andrew Lloyd Webber, Variety confirms.
Catch up on the latest celeb news with MTV UK below...
Swift will star in the sure-to-be massive movie alongside fellow singer Jennifer Hudson, who has frequently married music and film throughout her career ever since starring in Dreamgirls alongside Beyoncé.
Talk show host James Corden and legendary actor Ian McKellen have also signed up to the project, although it's unclear which roles they will play.
Taylor's character is also being kept under wraps for now, with only Hudson's role being revealed as she will play Grizabella.
Fans are already trying to figure out which character their beloved Taylord is set to play, yet with her touring schedule it's tricky to guess whether she has the time to be committed to a big role.
In saying that, her worldwide Reputation Stadium Tour ends its Australian leg on November 9 and will then only play two final dates in Tokyo, wrapping up for good on November 21.
So with filming scheduled to begin in November also - in Britain, mind you - there's no reason that the pop star won't be at the forefront of the cast.
Whatever role she plays, we cannot wait to see Taylor on the big screen!
