Taylor Swift, 31, is set to star in a period comedy film after playing Bombalurina in “Cats,” a musical fantasy film released on December 20, 2019. She herself has yet to confirm the upcoming film.
The title of the period comedy film has yet to be officially announced but its possible title is “Canterbury Glass,” according to Showbiz 411. It is reportedly set in the Great Depression, a severe worldwide economic depression that started in the United States mostly during the 1930s.
Written and directed by David O. Russell, the upcoming film is about an unlikely partnership formed by a doctor and a lawyer.
