Spears’ representative released a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday: ”Britney Spears will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the Lifetime biopic, nor does it have her blessing.”
Hail, Caesar! actress Natasha Bassett will be playing the popstar. The movie is slated to begin filming singer in September is set to premiere in 2017.
