As much as we try to avoid the toxic hole that is Twitter, there’s no denying the social media platform is the place to go to find news before it’s reported on anywhere else.
Case in point: this morning, unlikely trio Anya Taylor-Joy, Taylor Swift and Margot Robbie were all trending on the platform together. Upon clicking on the women’s names to see what was happening, it came up that fans were losing their minds over the recent report that Swift has joined the cast for David O. Russell’s upcoming all-star movie, Canterbury Glass, which Taylor-Joy and Robbie are already confirmed as starring in.
In true Twitter fashion, one random website—Showbiz 411—had reported on the rumour, which a fan had quickly sniffed out and shared online. The result was thousands of tweets from Taylor-Joy, Swift and Robbie fans desperate to see the threesome star in a project together.

The film, Russell’s first since 2015’s Joy, has been kept almost completely under wraps, except for the fact that, Swift aside, there’s already a huge number of A-listers confirmed to be on the bill: Robbie and Taylor-Joy are joined by Christian Bale, John David Washington, Alessandro Nivola, Rami Malek, Michael Shannon, and Zoe Saldana, Mike Myers, Chris Rock and Robert De Niro.
As Vanity Fair points out, the only person missing from the line-up is Jennifer Lawrence, who made a name for herself in part by starring back-to-back in Russell’s last three films: Silver Linings Playbook (which earned her an Oscar), American Hustle (which got her an Oscar nomination), and Joy (which got her another nomination). However, Lawrence is currently filming Don’t Look Up with Adam McKay.
According to Showbiz 411, the movie, which is based on an original concept by Russell, is a “period piece” set in the Depression.
Russell, give the people what they want (and then please add Zendaya).
