The pop-country singer is “already in line” for the role of Mitchell and currently there’s a handful of stars testing for Simon and King. Allison Williams (Girls), Jessica Pare (Mad Men), or Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love) are trying out for Simon, while Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Olivia Thirlby (Dredd 3D), Ari Graynor (For a Good Time, Call), and Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) are going for King.
Girls Like Us follows the rising career of the three acclaimed female songwriters, as they reshaped the industry and influenced future songwriters for years to come. Kate Jacobs (House) will direct from a script written by John Sayles (Eight Men Out). For a teaser of what’s to come, revisit Swift’s iconic 2009 single, “You Belong With Me”.
