HOLLYWOOD, April 21 (UPI) -- U.S. country music star Taylor Swift is considering playing the role of music legend Joni Mitchell in the upcoming film "Girls Like Us," Variety reported.

Swift has been linked to the role for several months as other actresses have auditioned to play fellow music legends Carly Simon and Carole King, the entertainment trade magazine reported Friday.

Alison Phil, who was in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," auditioned to play King, Variety said.

"Girls Like Us," which would be produced by Sony Pictures and Di Bonaventura Pictures, has yet to be greenlit, though production has been scheduled to start later this year.

Swift made her acting debut in romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" and most recently voiced a role in "The Lorax."
