Taylor Swift is set to make her feature directorial debut with an original script written by Swift, with Fox Searchlight producing. 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.”
Earlier this year, Swift transitioned into film with the release of All Too Well: The Short Film, a ten minute project which she directed, wrote, produced, and starred in. All Too Well became the longest song to enter and reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, surpassing Don McLean’s “American Pie,” which was first released in 1971 with a run time of 8 minutes and 42 seconds. Swift premiered the short film at the 21st Tribeca Festival Talks in June.
