Trading Paint movie confirmed at the Cannes Festival

Sexy US singer Britney Spears is making a film set in the world of motor racing. The 23-year-old pop princess has signed up to produce the £29 million drama called Trading Paint and is expected to take a starring role.

Details of Britney’s new Nascar racing project, which begins shooting next year, were announced today at the Cannes Film Festival. The plot revolves around the rivalry between two racing drivers who lost touch after both surviving a terrible crash, according to industry magazine Screen International. Years later they are brought together for a final race by a young woman - a part likely to be played by Britney. It will be the pregnant star's second movie venture. In 2002 she made her big-screen debut in critically-panned film Crossroads.
