Taylor Swift is taking another stab at the big screen.
The country singer is lending her voice as the dream girl in the Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s 3D CGI production of Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Swift joins an ensemble cast that includes Zac Efron, Betty White, Danny DeVito and Ed Helms.
In the story, a young boy (Efron) seeks the affections of his ideal girl (Swift). DeVito is the voice of the Lorax, a grumpy but loving creature who protects the boy’s world. White will play the boy’s wise grandmother and Helms is doing the voice of Once-ler, who in the book is never seen except for his hands and arms.
“Lorax” features many of the same team players as Illumination’s previous blockbuster, “Despicable Me,” including Chris Renaud as director and a screenplay by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
Swift made her film debut playing Taylor Lautner’s girlfriend in the saccharine sweet rom-com “Valentine’s Day.”
She briefly dated Lautner afterwards. Perhaps Swift will find sparks with newly-single Efron this time around.
