Taylor Swift to mark big screen return with Christian Bale and Margot Robbie in David O Russell’s next


Grammy-award winning singer Taylor Swift is all set to make a return to the big screen with filmmaker David O Russell’s next project.
The singer will be the latest A-lister to come on board the project that already boasts of an ensemble cast featuring Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana.

Although plot details are being kept under wraps, it is said that the film is based on Russell’s original idea. The untitled film is also said the director’s first feature since his critically acclaimed 2015 film ‘Joy’, starring Jennifer Lawrence.
The upcoming feature also stars Robert De Niro, Mike Myers, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Shannon, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Andrea Riseborough, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alessandro Nivola.

It remains to be seen if the tide will finally turn for Taylor with this big-screen return. The singer last appeared in ‘Cats’. The 2019 musical adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s long-running stage show, sadly didn’t work well with the audience and was slammed by critics.

Bale, on the other hand, previously collaborated with Russell on 2010’s ‘The Fighter’ , which earned the actor his maiden Oscar for best-supporting actor.

Besides Taylor, another singer-turned-actress who is also expected to make a splash on the big screen is Lady Gaga. The star is awaiting the release of the biographical crime drama, ‘House of Gucci’, directed by Hollywood veteran Ridley Scott. The movie stars Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver), the grandson of the Gucci fashion house founder Guccio Gucci.

On the music front, Swift has been riding high with the success of her albums ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’. She took home the Grammy for Album Of The Year for ‘Folklore’, which was the highest-selling album in 2020.

Swift’s ‘Evermore’ also set the record for the biggest sales week for a vinyl album in the U.S. According to MRC Data reports, the vinyl edition of the album that released on May 28, sold over 40,000 copies in the U.S. through May 30.
