Taylor Swift’s Film Role in ‘The Giver’ Confirmed
Taylor Swift will hit the big screen once again. Billboard has confirmed that the singer has been cast as a supporting role in a film adaptation to the 1993 novel The Giver, due to hit theaters in August 2014.
Rumors circulated last week that Swift would appear in the film, after Page Six reported that she took a meeting with one of the film’s actors.
Swift finds herself alongside Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Brenton Thwaites in The Giver. Additional cast members include True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard, The Odd Life of Timothy Green‘s Odeya Rush and Cameron Monaghan of Shameless, Billboard reports. The movie, which is set to start filming Oct. 7 in Cape Town, South Africa, will be directed by Salt’s Phil Noyce and is due to hit theaters Aug. 15, 2014.
