According to the Post:
“Scarlett brings acting ability, and she can reallysing,” said the source. “Evan Rachel Wood brings her indie cred.” And casting Swift would mark a major move over to Hollywood films for the pop star.
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Geoffrey Rush are all set to star in the film from Universal and Working Title. I am not a huge fan of musicals, but this cast is really good. I would like to see Johansson in the role personally, what about you?
