'Where the Crawdads Sing,' adapted from Delia Owens' 2018 novel, opens July 15.
When Where the Crawdads Sing was released as a novel in 2018, it captivated audiences everywhere and quickly was picked up to be adapted into a feature film. Now it appears Taylor Swift is a fan, too, as a new original song from the Grammy Award-winning musician plays under a trailer for the film.
"You didn't see me here. No, they never did see me here. There are places that I would never, never go," Swift sings in the trailer, which you can watch below. An apt lyric for the murder mystery that will unfold in the film.
Where the Crawdads Sing, which opens on July 15, is adapted from Delia Owens' novel of the same title. In it, Kya (played by Daisy Edgar-Jones) is a young woman who raised herself in the North Carolina marshlands after being abandoned. She became known as the "Marsh Girl," and rumors about her flew around the area, isolating her from the community. But when she is drawn to two young men from town, she begins to open herself up to a new world. Unfortunately, one of them is killed, and she is immediately considered a suspect.
As she says in the trailer, "being isolated was one thing, but being hunted is another."
The case will unfold throughout the movie, revealing secrets of the marsh and the town as it does.
"The marsh knows one thing above all else: Every creature does what it must to survive," Kya warns.
The film also stars Taylor John Smith as Tate Walker, Harris Dickinson as Chase Andrews, Michael Hyatt as Mabel, Sterling Macer, Jr. as Jumpin', and David Strathairn as Tom Milton.
Where the Crawdads Sing was adapted by Lucy Alibar and directed by Olivia Newman. It is produced by 3000 Pictures, Reese Witherspoon, and Lauren Neustadter. Executive producers are Betsy Danbury and Rhonda Fehr.
