Weitz said the singer is “willing to be somebody in the cafeteria, or a diner, or whatever. He wants to be in this movie.”
But the director rejected the idea of having such a big star in the film.
“The hardest thing for me is, when Taylor Swift walks on screen for about five minutes, no one is able to process anything,” Weitz said. “I kick myself for that, because I was like, wow, I could have hung out with Taylor Swift.”
“She was like, ‘Who’s this jerk?’ It should be,” he added. “But sometimes you make decisions thinking it’s the best of the film.”
The 2009 film starred Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
