Taylor Swift to play singer Joni Mitchell?

taylor-swift-guitar-getty.jpg Taylor Swift may be on deck to play Joni Mitchell in the film adaptation of Sheila Weller's book "Girls Like Us," reports Variety.

The movie, which tracks the careers of singers Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King, would be the Grammy winner's first big-screen drama. She previously appeared in the romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" and voiced a role in "The Lorax." Swift also appeared as herself in Miley Cyrus' 2009 "Hannah Montana: The Movie."

While Swift doesn't have an official offer for the role yet, she's been connected to the part for months. Alison Pill ( "Midnight in Paris") has auditioned to play King. The film hasn't been greenlit yet either but is tentatively scheduled to start filming later this year.
