HOLLYWOOD – Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift are teaming up to play Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison in a new movie about the Sisters of Mercy.
Although no longer a romantic couple, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift will be appearing again in a new film, directed by Duncan Jones. This Corrosion tells the story of iconic goth band The Sisters of Mercy. Andrew Eldritch formed the band in the 80s in Leeds, England and had a break out international success with the album Floodland in 1987.
Hiddleston told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
I’ve always been a huge fan of The Sisters of Mercy. Especially First and Last and Always. So I jumped at the chance to make the film. I’d already played a musician with Hank Williams in I Saw the Light, so it was not difficult to get back into it again. I read the script while I was still seeing Taylor and it was natural that we look for something to work together on. She wanted to play Patricia and so that’s what is going to happen. We’re both pros so I don’t see there being any difficulty. And anyway, the relationship between Andrew and Patricia was also quite difficult so that can just feed into it.
Duncan Jones was equally sanguine about bringing Hiddleswift back together:
Tom is a great actor. And Taylor is supremely talented. I’m sure if we have any difficulty we can just ‘shake it off’. Ha ha.
