It looks like Taylor Swift has nine lives as an actress, set to appear in a new film from director David O. Russell. 

Swift is heading back to the big screen after her part as Bombalurina in the dismal 2019 adaptation of the musical Cats, which was a critical disappointment and a box office flop.

Now, the pop superstar, 31, will reportedly be appearing opposite Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana in a project penned and directed by Russell, according to Variety

There are few details about the O. Russell project, with the title of the film and plot details still remaining secret.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Swift’s reps for comment. 

The new O. Russell film has already completed production and Disney’s 20th Century Studios will be releasing the project.

This will be the filmmaker’s first return to the big screen since 2015’s Joy with Jennifer Lawrence.
