Taylor Swift lands 'Les Mis' film role

Reports suggest Taylor has been offered the role of Eponine in 'Les Miserables'.

She's said to have ousted high-profile competition from the likes of Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood to land the coveted role.

Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) will direct the movie adaption of the popular musical in which Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway are also set to star.

Filming is planned to start in the Spring with the cinematic release expected towards the end of the year.
