Taylor Swift fans are excited because it was just announced that the pop star will direct her first full-length movie based on a script she wrote herself. Swift has written an original script that will be made by Searchlight Pictures, which has made movies like Nomadland and The Shape of Water that won Oscars.
However, more information about the project has been kept secret. This is not Taylor’s first time directing, though. She has done it before with her own music videos, such as the multi-award-winning short film All Too Well: The Short Film. Taylor Swift also wrote the nearly 15-minute video, which starred Sadie Sink from Stranger Things and Dylan O’Brien from Teen Wolf.
At the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards for music videos, the singer-songwriter won for best video, best long-form video, and best direction. With her win at the 2020 award show for the music video for her song “The Man,” she became the first and only solo artist to ever win two best direction awards.

All Too Well: The Short Film also won at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) last month for best video and best long-form video. Swift has won 11 Grammys, and she is the only woman in Grammy history to have won the prestigious album of the year award three times. The 10-minute version of “All Too Well” recently got her another Grammy nomination for song of the year.
Fans have taken to Twitter to talk about how happy they are with Taylor’s latest career move. They say they’re glad they became her fans. One person wrote, “I really picked the right person to look up to. I don’t need more than her music, but she never stops surprising me.” One person tweeted, “I’m really looking forward to this because it will be the first time we really get to see Taylor direct something that isn’t about her music. How about, what does she want to say? What sort of fashion?”
