Taylor Swift to Direct Untitled Feature Film at Searchlight Pictures

Singer/songwriter and actor Taylor Swift will jump into the feature directing world as she is set to make her feature directorial debut for Searchlight Pictures in a yet-to-be-titled film.

The news was announced this morning, without any stars attached to the project. However, the prospect of Swift directing a feature film has been a long time coming, having recently starred in Cats and Amsterdam and directed the acclaimed documentary Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions for Disney+.

She also directed All Too Well: The Short Film, which is in contention for the Best Live Action Short Film category at the 95th Academy Awards. In a statement, Searchlight Pictures presidents David Greenbaum said that “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.”
