She co-wrote a song, Sweeter Than Fiction, with Jack Antoff of Fun for the soundtrack of the film. At the event, she was approached for a supporting role by Harvey Weinstein.

"Harvey introduced Taylor to Brenton in Toronto because they were both going to be in the film," the source told Page Six.

According to reports, Swift and Thwaites spent some quality time together at a Soho House party in Toronto for One Chance. They were also spotted grabbing burgers at 2 a.m. and were among the last to leave. 

Holmes will be playing the mother of Thwaites' character in the film.

The film is based on a dystopian sci-fi novel by Lois Lowry and follows the story of Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) who is a 'receiver of memories' and and works with The Giver (Bridges), an old man who trains the boy and guides him. Streep is cast in an antaginistic role as the society's Chief Elder.

The Giver is being directed by Phillip Noyce and the script was written by Michael Mitnick.

In the past, Swift starred in Valentine's Day with Taylor Lautner.
