Britney Spears and NASCAR

Just ANOTHER reason NOT to like NASCAR.

Britney races ahead with plans for second movie
June 18, 2002 Posted: 1:43 PM EDT (1743 GMT)

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Pop princess Britney Spears is moving full speed ahead with her movie career, signing a deal with NASCAR to star in a feature film set in the world of stock car racing, NASCAR officials said Monday.

Writing and planning for the as yet untitled movie is still in its early stages but Spears is expected to play the fictional daughter of a successful NASCAR team owner who inspires a former driver to return to the sport.

Spears, who made her screen acting debut in February in the girl road and friendship movie "Crossroads," has formed her own production company -- Britney Spears Productions -- to develop and produce the project.

There are currently no plans for the 20-year-old pop star, who is now on a U.S. concert tour, to sing in the new movie, which is expected to go into production in early 2003.

NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing) is the second-highest rated sport on U.S. television with a 75-million-strong fan base, particularly in the southern United States. The movie will feature real NASCAR drivers, tracks and competition.

NASCAR officials said they were attracted to the project because of Spears' image as an all-American southern girl, with a strong sense of family.

Producer Ann Carli said the goal was to create a film that portrays the spirit of NASCAR. "It is not just about winning -- it's about family, perseverance and the belief that any dream is possible," Carli said.

Spears and her father are both said to be big NASCAR fans.

What would be even better is if she had an affair, say, with a track day enthusiast/wanna be motorcycle racer from the east coast that convinced the racer to come back. Then it would be really cool.

Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.

Thumbs down Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the movies!

This sounds like a classic case of 'good news, bad news'.
The bad news is obvious (more Britney Spears, in a NASCAR movie, no less)!
The good news is...maybe now Days of Thunder will seem to be a good NASCAR movie (now there's an oxymoron)?
Nah....
