Britney Spears Shuns Lifetime Biopic
Lifetime is still outchea ruining folks’ life stories with their biopics!
The network announced Britney Spears is next up on their biopic Summer Jam screen and she is NOT here for it.
According to a statement released by her rep, Brit Brat “will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the Lifetime biopic nor does it have her blessing.”
Natasha Bassett is set to star as the Pop icon in the film that will detail the “tumultuous true story” of her rise to fame, fall from grace and triumphant resurrection.
The two-hour movie will follow Spears’ early career as a young girl from Louisiana, relationship and breakup with Justin Timberlake as well as her personal struggles following her parents’ divorce. Also set to be examined are her marriages to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline and her downfall that saw her lose custody of her sons before she rebuilt her career and proved herself to be a force in entertainment.
The movie will be produced by Asylum Entertainment (The Kennedys, Ring of Fire). Anne-Marie Hess will pen the script with Leslie Libman (Manson’s Lost Girls) directing. Exec producers include Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison. Production will begin Sept. 19 in Vancouver for a 2017 premiere.
We all know how Lifetime gets down – no Britney won’t stop no show over there!
