Taylor Swift has been cast in 'The Giver'.

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer has joined the cast of the new sci-fi movie, which will star Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Australian newcomer Brenton Thwaites.

Swift was spotted getting cosy with Thwaites while at Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, and it's thought the pair were introduced by Harvey Weinstein, whose Weinstein Company will produce 'The Giver'.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''Harvey introduced Taylor to Brenton in Toronto because they were both going to be in the film.''

'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgard is also being considered for a role in the movie, according to the report.

'The Giver' is set in a dystopian society, which is disturbed when a 12-year-old boy named Jonas (Thwaites) is selected to learn from an elderly man, The Giver (Bridges), about the pain and strife of the real world.

Streep's alter-ego is in charge of keeping order in the society, but that authority is put in danger when the youngster is chosen to be the receiver of memories of life before the 'sameness movement', which froze the population and created conformism.

The movie is based on a 1993 novel by Lois Lowry.
