Britney Spears’ Film “Crossroads,” Scheduled To Make Its Netflix Debut

Britney Spears’ first major motion picture role, “Crossroads,” will be accessible on Netflix worldwide on February 15th, the streamer revealed.

On that very day in 2002, the film debuted. At the time, Spears had just become the most commercially successful teenage music artist in history thanks to the popularity of her songs “Oops…I Did It Again” and “Baby One More Time.”

In the movie, which featured her song “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman,” Spears played Lucy. The film addressed issues including teenage pregnancy, sexual assault, and parental abandonment. Alongside Zoë Saldana, Taryn Manning, Dan Akroyd, Beverly Johnson, and Kim Cattrall, the cult favorite also starred.

The movie was directed by Tamra Davis and written by Shonda Rhimes, the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Bridgerton.” The production staff, which was predominately female, was unusual at the time.

The film was produced by Ann Carli, a former employee of Spears’ record label, Jive Records. She asked Davis, who she had previously directed music videos for, to be the director, but Davis first declined. But the director changed her mind after meeting Spears.

Before this, in an open Instagram post, Britney Spears said she would “never return to the music industry,” dispelling the myth that she is working on a new album.
