Taylor Swift makes directorial debut for original screenplay

Taylor Swift will be making her directorial debut with her own screenplay, Variety reported.

The singer-songwriter has signed with Searchlight Pictures — the Oscar-winning studio behind The Menu and The Shape of Water — to direct her own full-length film.

“Taylor is a one-of-a-kind artist and storyteller. It is a real pleasure and privilege to work with her as she embarks on this exciting new creative journey,” said Searchlight Presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield.

Details like the plot and the cast are closely guarded, as Swifties are sure to be looking for clues — as they often do.

Swift has slowly slipped behind the camera in recent years, co-directing her 2019 music video “Me” and fully directing her music videos for “The Man” (2019), “Cardigan” (2020), “Willow (2020). , Anti-Hero (2022) and Bejeweled (2022).

Last year, she received Oscar buzz for her 14-minute short All Too Well, which was paired with her eponymous hit.

She recently gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the fan-favorite video, which won the MTV Video Music Award for Video of the Year.

The star previously described her work directing All Too Well during the Toronto International Film Festival as “a fulfilling experience” and revealed her interest in diving into directing a film at the time.

“I think I’ll always want to tell human stories about human emotions,” Swift said.

“I never say never, but I can’t see myself filming an action sequence. If it happens one day, honestly, that’s going to be fun character development, but at this point I could imagine it going in a more comedic, irreverent direction.”

Swift’s fans, including Sam Bankman-Fried, are notorious for their die-hard love for the star and are expected to make everything she releases a hit.

While she’s known for focusing much of her work on her past and present relationships and heartbreak, Swift shared that she plans to expand her storylines.

“I don’t always find myself telling stories about extreme, guttural heartbreak at your most formative age that drains you emotionally for years and then you have to develop the scar tissue to get on with your life and limp yourself to your typewriter and write one.” novel about it,” she said. “I think I did.”
