The hype around Argylle and its mysterious connection to Taylor Swift has reached a new high. When fan theories started popping up suggesting that Swift was the ghostwriter of the upcoming spy thriller, nobody expected the whispers to reach the ears of the movie’s big names. Through the wide-reaching influence of Swifties, somehow the theory continues to spread like wildfire. The commonalities between Swift and the movie’s writer, Elly Conway, like their fondness for the Argyle pattern and cats, have baffled many. 

The cast of the flick recently addressed these factors while risking the possibility of triggering Swift’s fierce fandom.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight yesterday, the entire Argylle team unanimously debunked the Taylor Swift theory. While John Cena took an optimistic stance saying that the whole debacle is great “marketing” for the flick and “speaks volumes of her influence”, Henry Cavill made the blunder of asking if the 12-time Grammy winner even “writes or not. Well, that would probably not sit well with Swifties who defend Swift’s songwriting capabilities dedicatedly.

Meanwhile, Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays Elly Conway in the flick felt that Swift could have been an “unconscious” inspiration for her character. Even Bryan Cranston felt the “breadcrumbs” leading to this conclusion were evident. Then, Argylle’s director, Matthew Vaughn, revealed how his daughter was also convinced of the theory’s validity. He even suggested Conway might come out into the spotlight to settle the “Taylor Swift thing.” 

These new developments in the story and the cast’s comments on it could affect the movie’s viewership drastically.

In case the real Elly Conway reveals herself as Vaughn suggested, the buzz around the movie through its connection to Swift might die down. Not to forget how the rest of the cast shot down the theory and fans’ hopes alongside it. Well, Henry Cavill even questioned Swift’s ability to write. Now, Swifties alone could make or break the film’s box-office collection considering how they made Swift’s concert movie an absolute hit

Through her romance with Travis Kelce, the 34-year-old also increased NFL viewership by a significant amount. Another instance that speaks of her relevance is when the soccer player Alejandro Balde lost out on a Golden Boy award last year because an old tweet of him speaking down on Swift’s music surfaced. Whether Argylle will suffer a similar fate at the hands of Swifties remains to be seen.
