Taylor Swift Has Directorial Instincts Like Steven Spielberg, Says Shawn Levy

by smbpapon22P

Taylor Swift has established herself as a major force in the music business. A known songwriter with a knack for brilliant and vulnerable storytelling, the singer formerly ventured into new territory with her first film project, All Too Well: The Short Film, based on her “Red” album’s emotional fifth track. Following announcements that the “Anti-Hero” hitmaker will be making her feature-length directorial debut, some big names in the industry have lauded Swift, including none other than Guillermo del Toro, calling her a “very accomplished director.” As Swift prepares to direct her yet-untitled debut feature, another successful director Deadpool 3‘s Shawn Levy, confirmed Swift’s abilities behind the camera, even comparing her instincts to Steven Spielberg‘s.

Levy, who had a brief appearance in the Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien-led All Too Well: The Short Film, shared that Swift has not consulted him about the upcoming directing project. Nevertheless, Levy can assure that the singer “has the makings of a hell of a director.” In an interview with Entertainment Weekly — in connection with the premiere of his new series All the Light We Cannot See — the Deadpool 3 filmmaker calls the “Cruel Summer” singer a “generational voice and creative force” in the industry. He continued saying:

“Taylor, the depth of her vision for how she wants a creative piece to be, whether it’s a lyric, a melody, a bridge, a concert tour, a video, it’s profound. It’s profoundly vivid, and she has the strength of her convictions. Spielberg was on the set of a movie he produced that I directed, called Real Steel, and I said to him, ‘How do you know it’s the right shot?’ His answer was, ‘The way you see it, that makes it right.’ I feel like that’s something Taylor Swift has figured out really well, because that’s about trusting your instinct.”

It was announced last year that Swift would be entering her directorial era, which will be solely based on a screenplay she wrote. But before the film that she will helm herself ushers in a new era, the singer previously announced the worldwide film release of her record-breaking The Eras Tour. The concert film will hit theaters on October 13.
