Is there a Britney Spears biopic in the works?

The pop icon is set to release a memoir with Simon & Schuster in the near future, but can we expect some screen time on the vocalist's story? Millie Bobby Brown hopes so.

While appearing on Drew Barrymore's talk show, the Stranger Things star revealed that she'd love to play the "Toxic" singer in a film, and she believes she can do Spears justice. 

"I want to play a real person, and I think for me, it would be Britney Spears. I think her story, first of all, resonates with me," Brown confessed.

She continued, "Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching interviews of her when she was younger. I mean, same thing with you [Drew Barrymore]. I see the scramble for words and I don’t know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way and hers only."

Although she seemingly had good intentions, Brit wasn't on board with the proposed project.

No, we shouldn't expect a biopic at this point—it was just MBB talking about potential future roles. Even still, the "Baby One More Time" singer decided to give her input. In a recent Instagram post from Spears, which took aim at her parents and her abusive conservatorship, she also touched on the idea about the film, without naming specific parties. 

She wrote, "I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life … dude I’m not dead !!!"

Well, it looks like movies are a no-go for the moment (sorry, MBB) but as soon as Spears' memoir hits shelves, you can expect us to snag a copy or two.
