LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Singer Taylor Swift has joined the cast of "The Giver," a drama starring Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites, the New York Post reported.

Alexander Skarsgard is to co-star in the film, which is expected to shoot in South Africa.

"[Producer] Harvey [Weinstein] introduced Taylor to Brenton in Toronto because they were both going to be in the film," a source told the Post, referring to the Toronto International Film festival, which both Swift and Thwaites attended.

Swift, 23, is a country music star whose previous acting credits include "The Lorax" and "Valentine's Day."
