Taylor Swift To Play Joni Mitchell In New Film

Taylor Swift has signed on to star in Girls Like Us as Joni Mitchell. The film is adapted by the book of the same name by Sheila Weller and centers on the personalities of Mitchell, Carole King and Carly Simon, and their influence on culture.

Alison Pill and Olivia Thirlby are in the running to play King, while Alison Williams (Girls) and Jessica Pare (Mad Men) are vying for the role of Simon.

John Sayles (Honeydripper, The Spiderwick Chronicles) wrote the script for the film, which Sony Pictures has yet to green light.

Swift previously played a small part in the romantic comedy, Valentine's Day, alongside ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner; she also voiced a character in Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.
