Taylor Swift In Talks To Play Joni Mitchell

Country singer Taylor Swift is reportedly in talks to play iconic singer and songwriter Joni Mitchell in an upcoming movie.

The movie is titled Girls Like Us, which is a big screen adaptation of Sheila Weller’s book of the same title. Variety reports that the story follows the careers of Joni and her friends Carly Simon and Carole King.

But Taylor doesn’t even look remotely like Joni — how did this casting decision happen? Did the casting call only call for a blonde girl who could sing? Can she even pull this off?

Production on the film is reported to begin later this year with Alison Pill taking the role of Carole King and John Sayles directing.

Do you think Taylor has what it takes to play Joni Mitchell? We have to admit that we are very skeptical. We’ll see how this one plays out. Nothing is set in stone, right?
