- Director Shawn Levy praises Taylor Swift’s directorial skills and compares her to Steven Spielberg.
- Taylor Swift’s artistic vision and trust in her instincts make her a promising director.
- Taylor Swift’s concert film, The Eras Tour Movie, has broken records and received enormous success, leading to early access showings and overwhelming support from fans.
As Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Movie is projected to be one of the biggest hits of the year, Taylor Swift’s career as a filmmaker is receiving new positive feedback from Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy, who compares her to none other than Steven Spielberg.
There is no doubt that Taylor Swift has left a huge mark on the world of music. Her 10 studio albums have achieved enormous success around the world, making her one of the most acclaimed musical artists of this century. However, her impact has transcended far beyond, even conquering the film industry. Swift has shown her directorial skills in various music videos for her own songs, and even turned one of them into a short film.
All Too Well, starring Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner) and Swift herself, also includes a small participation from Shawn Levy, so he was able to witness the singer’s talent as a director in person. And the filmmaker behind Deadpool 3 has nothing but praise for Swift’s artistic vision, which even reminds him of Steven Spielberg, as he revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:
“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. […] I think she has the makings of a hell of a director”
Recently, Levy and Swift were seen together at the Chiefs and Giants game, accompanied by Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, reigniting rumors about the singer’s possible involvement in the movie, as part of the long list of surprise cameos that is supposed to include the long-awaited debut of the Merc with a Mouth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
