The cable network is developing an original movie about Britney Spears’ life and career, entitled Britney. The two-hour biopic will tell what the network is calling the “tumultuous story” of her rise to fame at a young age, her fall from grace and her eventual triumphant return to the spotlight.
Telling Spears’ story means telling the story of plenty of other famous faces, as well. As the movie follows the pop star’s early career and early years in Louisiana, it’ll also take a look at her relationship with none other than Justin Timberlake.
The film will also look at Spears’ failed marriages to childhood friend Jason Alexander (famously annulled after 55 hours) and Kevin Federline, before forcing to relive those dark days when her life spiraled out of control, placing under her father’s conservatorship.
Natasha Bassett (Hail, Ceaser) will play the princess of pop.
Her Carpool Karaoke segment with James Corden premieres on The Late Late Show on Thursday, Aug. 25, while her new album Glory hits shelves the next day.
Britney goes into production next month with an anticipated 2017 premiere.
