In 2012, the announcement was made that Swift would possibly play micthell but it was not confirmed at the time. Swift stated she was eager and excited at the idea of playing the role. So why the two year hiatus on the production of the film? Recently, the truth behind why the biopic hasn’t been filmed has been brought to the light. In an interview, Mitchell made it very clear that she does not believe Swift is the best choice for the job. “I squelched that,” Mitchell told The Sunday Times . “I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.” Mitchell also said that nobody knows her true story and does not want rumors and assumptions about her life being publicized. ” It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes. There’s a lot of nonsense about me in books. . .assumptions, assumptions, assumptions.”
What do you think of Mitchell’s statements?
