Playing Britney Spears TV Movie Will Feature Justin Timberlake Romance

Oh baby, baby… Britney Spears is getting the movie treatment.

The pop star’s life will be the subject of Britney, a new career-spanning Lifetime TV movie following her rise to stardom, fall from grace and return to the spotlight, the network announced Wednesday.

Filming on Britney is set to begin in Vancouver on September to air on Lifetime in 2017. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

The upcoming two-hour film will span Spears’ early days in Kentwood, Louisiana, her high-profile romance with Justin Timberlake and her struggles following her parents’ divorce, as well as her short-lived marriages to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline. It will also cover Spears’ custody battle over her young sons and her eventual resurrection to pop stardom.

Hail, Caesar’s Natasha Bassett will play the role of Spears in the TV movie, but the question remains: Who will play the men in her life? How many iconic moments from her teen romance with Timberlake -- like this 2001 denim gem -- will be featured?

Frankly, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Britney. So far, no word from Timberlake or Federline on social media, but a rep for Spears tells ET, "Britney Spears will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the Lifetime biopic nor does it have her blessing."

The news comes just days before Spears’ new studio album, Glory, hits stores on Friday and her Carpool Karaoke segment airs on Thursday’s The Late Late Show. She is also slated to perform on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday in New York City.

ET has reached out to reps for Spears and Federline for comment.
