Taylor Swift is set to direct a feature film for Searchlight Pictures based on a script she wrote herself. Searchlight presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield said in a statement, “Taylor is a once in a generation artist and storyteller. It is a genuine joy and privilege to collaborate with her as she embarks on this exciting and new creative journey.” The title and other details have not yet been confirmed.
Swift, who released Midnights in October, wrote and directed a short film last year to accompany an extended version of her song “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version).” It was submitted for the 2023 Oscars, and won the 2022 VMA for Best Direction. The latter award made Swift, who also won in 2020 for “The Man,” the first solo artist to receive the honor twice.
