The 23-year-old country star Taylor Swift has been offered a role in a spy movie called “The Secret Service”. The Mirror reports that Swift will feature as a girl who escapes after being kidnapped by a villain, set to be played by Samuel L. Jackson. “Kick Ass” director Matthew Vaughn is at the helm of the huge budget film, described as a 21st Century 007.
A production source explains why the “You Belong With Me” singer is chosen to join the project:
“Matthew looked at a number of actresses to play the part before settling on Taylor, apparently she was a natural on the big screen. She’s also someone fresh and unseen in Hollywood terms which was massively appealing.”
The source added that Swift would have to:
“have martial arts training in order to convincingly kick Samuel L. Jackson’s butt.”
The source continued:
“It will be Taylor’s biggest challenge to date but she cannot wait,”
David Beckham, Elton John and Adele have been offered cameos. Swift is excited to work with Beckham, the source added:
“She is also looking forward to working with David Beckham whom she thinks is amazing looking, but taken.”
Jane Goldman will pen the screenplay of the film, based on the Mark Millar comic books. The film is supported by Colin Firth and Michael Caine as cast members.
“The Secret Service” is expected to be released in November 2014.
