Report: Taylor Is Up to Play Joni Mitchell in Major Movie

Country star is up for a lead role in a movie adaptation of a book about three singer/songwriters, Variety reports.

We've seen Taylor Swift briefly in romantic comedy Valentine's Day, and we've heard her voice in the movie version of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.

Might we finally be seeing Taylor in a major role in a major movie? Trade publication Variety says yes.

The magazine reports that Taylor is up for the role of singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell, who wrote and performed such '60s and '70s classics as "The Circle Game," "Big Yellow Taxi" and "Woodstock."

Seems Sony Pictures is making a movie about Joni, Carly Simon and Carole King that's based on a book about the three called Girls Like Us.

The movie, if it gets the final go-ahead, would start shooting later this year—depending the schedules of the actors who land the roles.

Taylor recently told a newspaper in the Phillippines that she has been reading scripts for years, looking for that role for which she can feel passon. Could this be it? No word from Taylor's camp yet.
