A press release describes the movie as a journey through “both monumental heights and devastating lows”.

The upcoming feature is Joe's highly-awaited follow-up to his appearances in the likes of the TV adaptation of Conversations with Friends, and the Lena Dunham-directed comedy, Catherine Called Birdy – both of which were released in 2022.

Notably, in the same year, he also starred alongside Margaret Qualley in the romantic thriller Stars at Noon.

He is currently working on the anthology film, And, starring alongside an impressive cast consisting of Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, and Hong Chau. The project also serves as his onscreen reunion with Qualley, who is a good friend of Swift's and Jack Antonoff's fiancée.

Taylor has been equally busy amid the breakup, in the past week alone she has been spotted filming a music video in Liverpool, which was quickly followed by an appearance in New York, and will soon be returning to The Eras Tour in Tampa, Florida.

Taylor and Joe's split was reportedly an 'amicable' one, with People magazine claiming that the breakup was due to "differences in their personalities".
