Taylor Swift, country-pop superstar, has joined the cast of Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of The Giver by Lois Lowry. The film stars Jeff Bridges in the title role, with Brenton Thwaites in the central role of Jonas. Meryl Streep will play the chief elder of the seemingly idyllic society.

Taylor has already dipped her toes into acting with a small role in the movie Valentines Day, and voice acting in the movie The Lorax. Swift will play Rosemary, the last teen mentored by The Giver before he meets Jonas according to Variety.
