Taylor Swift signs another multi-starrer, to give Christian Bale company
Not just music, Taylor Swift is all set to reign Hollywood as well. The Grammy Award-winning artist has been roped in to star alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie in David O. Russell's upcoming movie. When it comes to films, Swift generally goes for multi-starrers. Her debut Valentine's Day had top stars like Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper and Taylor Lautner.
There are rumors the movie might be called 'Canterbury Glass'
Plot details are scarce for the Russell-directorial for now. However, if reports are to be believed, it might be called Canterbury Glass, and it could be a period drama about a doctor and lawyer's partnership. The movie has already completed production in LA, and yet, there is no release date confirmed. Russell has earlier helmed critically-acclaimed films like American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook.
The director brings aboard some of the best actors
The upcoming movie boasts of a stellar cast. Apart from Swift and Bale, it includes stars like John David Washington, Rami Malek, Zoe Saldana, Robert De Niro, Mike Myers, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Shannon, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Alessandro Nivola.
Fans urging Swift to back out over Russell's abusive behavior?
Ever since this news broke, fans have been urging Swift to drop out of the movie. This is because Russell has a history of alleged abusive behavior on set. It was Hollywood icon George Clooney, who brought this to light, after working with him in Three Kings. "It was truly, without exception, the worst experience of my life," he had told Playboy in 2020.
Not the first time Swift is part of ensemble cast
This is not the first time Swift is part of an ensemble cast. In fact, this will be her third time after Valentine's Day and Cats. In Cats, she was accompanied by James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, and Rebel Wilson. With this new venture, she probably would look to shrug off her Cats' disastrous aftertaste.
This year, Swift has raked up multiple awards
2021 has been an incredible year for the crooner. She received the Global Icon Award at the 2021 Brit Awards, and also won the Top Female Artist at BBMAs 2021. She also got the Album of the Year trophy for Folklore at Grammys 2021, taking her entire Grammy total to 11 awards till now. Her net worth is estimated to be around $400 million.
