Britney Spears to star in new movie
Pop star Britney Spears is in talks to star in a movie called "Memoirs of a Medicated Child".
Spears is expected to seek inspiration from her own life where she has had to appear in court to fight custody battles.
The film is a true story based on Mark Black who was wrongfully dosed and then imprisoned. Spears will star opposite Ross Tyler who plays the lead role.
The role is of a loyal girlfriend of a misdiagnosed mental patient, Pagesix.com reported.
Tommy Parker, the CEO of 2 Guys and a Dream Films confirmed the report, saying: "As far as Britney's concerned, we're talking". The producer and director of the film also confirmed the project.
A source said: "A letter of intent from Britney was received very recently. Lindsay Lohan was originally offered the part because they thought she'd be a better actor, but they changed their mind and wanted Britney instead."
The source added, "I think it's pretty unbelievable considering what the script is about - prescription drug use, ADHD meds, and all that - considering what Britney's been through. Everyone's very excited to have her join the cast."
