Britney Spears is no longer an aspiring actress — having already starred in "Crossroads" — but for her next film role the singer is going to recall the days she was just starting out.
Spears has signed on to star in and produce an adaptation of author Tobi Tobin's "Door to Door," in which she'll play an ambitious teenager who tries to make it in Hollywood. The story's narrator, like the author, is named Tobi. She leaves her small hometown of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, at the age of 17 to model in New York.
Unsuccessful there, she finds her way to Los Angeles and edges her way into the film-world elite by barhopping and going to parties, ever in search of a producer. She eventually falls into a relationship with a famous actor, but in the meantime she works the door at an old friend's club, where doors open for her.
The next step is hiring writers to adapt the book into a screenplay, New Regency Vice President of Marketing Michael Brown said, since the project is still in development and the timeframe remains undetermined. Twentieth Century Fox will distribute the film once it's completed.
