Back in January 2008 Variety
published a rumor, citing unnamed sources, that Britney Spears had agreed to play a killer lesbian stripper in Quentin Tarantino's next movie, a remake of Russ Meyer's 1965 film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Seven months later, there's no indication this rumor is true. For instance, there's no listing of such a project on IMDB.
Nevertheless, the rumor is circulating again. It was reported recently in The Telegraph
and on popcrunch
. It appears that the January rumor is simply being reported again, with no attempt to check the facts.
Taken together with the recent rumor that Spears was to star in a (nonexistent) movie titled The Knoxville Carjacking Party
, it seems that there's a deep unmet desire out there to see Spears starring in a slasher movie.
