    Taylor Swift Is Down For A "Last Great American Dynasty" Movie With Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, And Jesse Tyler Ferguson — And So Am I

    I can already smell the movie theater popcorn...

    If you're anything like me and have had Folklore on repeat for the past few weeks, it's likely you know the story of the song "The Last Great American Dynasty" by now.

    Republic

    In short, the song is likely based on the people who used to own the Rhode Island house that Taylor bought IRL.

    the last great american dynasty is about the former owner of taylor swift's rhode island mansion, Rebekah Harkness. She also known as betty just like one of #Folklore track. HER MIND!

    A couple — Rebekah, a "middle-class divorcée" and oil heir Bill — buys a house and all the neighbors lament about "the most shameless woman this town has ever seen." There's also a ton of parallels with the way Rebekah is perceived and the way Taylor has been depicted in the media.

    Well, Twitter user @TSlifestyle13 pointed out that the song has a super-cinematic quality to it and even gave a dream cast.

    The Last a Great American Dynasty would make an incredible movie. The story is timeless yet unique, the music would be exquisite, and it already has the perfect title. As for the cast: Blake Lively (Rebekah), Ryan Reynolds (Bill), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (neighbor). Manifesting..

    FYI, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds already have a connection to Folklore, given that Taylor announced the name of their third child Inez in the song "Betty."

    Coolest name reveal ever.

    Well, this might not be a mere fan wish! Jesse Tyler Ferguson was the first to respond saying that he'd be down:

    Ok I’m avail for this @VancityReynolds @blakelively @taylorswift13 https://t.co/tEfNKuXff3

    Jesse has his own connection with Taylor. They even sang at the Stonewall Inn together.

    Ryan then voiced a touch of concern, given that Bill's "heart gave out."

    @jessetyler @blakelively @taylorswift13 But Bill’s heart... ?

    As the lyrics say, "Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud / The doctor had told him to settle down / It must have been her fault his heart gave out."

    Blake delightfully trolled the post, in honor of Rebekah who took her neighbor's dog and "dyed it key lime green" in an argument.

    @taylorswift13 @VancityReynolds @jessetyler I painted Ryan key lime green ...I can’t wait til he wakes up.

    To be precise, "In a feud with her neighbor / She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green."

    Even Gigi Hadid (?) was into it:

    @taylorswift13 @VancityReynolds @jessetyler @blakelively same

    And heck, Taylor herself was up for it!

    @VancityReynolds @jessetyler @blakelively not trying to be The Loudest Woman This Town Has Ever Seen™️ but... I LOVE THIS

    There we have it, folks! The Last Great American Dynasty (2023), please?
