Britney Spears Will Be Played By Natasha Bassett In Lifetime Biopic
Well, I guess this was inevitable. Lifetime is making a biopic about Britney Spears’ life. “The two-hour movie will follow [her] early career as a young girl from Louisiana, relationship and breakup with Justin Timberlake, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. Other plot points? “Her downfall that saw her lose custody of her sons” and her marriages to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline. The television spectacular starts filming in Vancouver, Canada on September 19.
Who’s playing Britney? The role has been nabbed by Australian actress Natasha Bassett, who recently appeared in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar! She certainly looks the part, but time will tell if the Sydney starlet can master the pop diva’s demented grin and dance moves. No doubt, she will be watching when Brit makes a (hopefully) triumphant return to the MTV VMAs on Sunday night. There’s nothing like a happy ending!
