Taylor Swift To Play Joni Mitchell In Movie

Pop star confirmed in cast of movie about female 1970s singer-songwriters...

Taylor Swift will play Joni Mitchell in a forthcoming movie biopic about three 1970s female singers.

According to Variety, the country pop superstar is taking one of the lead roles in the big screen adaptation of Girls Like Us, Sheila Weller's book about Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King.

And Jessica Pare (who plays sexy Megan in Mad Men) is reported to have been lined-up for the role of You're So Vain singer Simon - while The Newsroom's Alison Pill is apparently the favourite to play King.

Swift, 22, has previously starred in romantic comedy Valentine's Day and voiced a character in The Lorax.
