But you're unlikely to see her in a stock car...

Britney Spears next feature film is to be based on the world of NASCAR racing.

The teen pop sensation’s first feature, ‘Crossroads’, was released earlier this year. Her US publicist told MTV news that she has now signed a deal with NASCAR (National Association Of Stock Car Auto Racing) to develop and produce a film based on the car racing, which is a sensation stateside.

The likely story will see Spears playing the daughter of a team owner, who persuades a retired driver to resume driving.

The currently untitled film is being written by ‘Muppets Treasure Island’ author James V. Hart.

Britney Spears is currently touring her new album.
