Britney Spears’ debut film Crossroads is heading back to cinemas in October to coincide with the release of her memoir The Woman In Me.
Crossroads (not the soap – a reference lost on around half of you we’d wager) was a pretty decent hit on its release back in 2002. Taking over $60 million on a budget of roughly $11 million, the film was released at a time when Britney Spears was just about one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, riding high in the charts following the release of three highly successful studio albums. It marked her movie debut, and it’s a pretty good one as well.
The film followed Spears as Lucy, alongside best friends Kit and Mimi, played by Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning, respectively. As they head on a road trip, old wounds are reopened and secrets are shared. You get an early appearance from Justin Long in the midst of it all as well.
Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes wrote the script to the movie, with Tamra Davis in the director’s chair. And it’s remained a steady DVD and streaming performer ever since its release. That said, few have seen it on the big screen, but a fresh opportunity to do just that is around the corner.
To coincide with the release of Spears’ memoir The Woman In Me – the first time she gets to tell her own story herself – the movie Crossroads is heading back to cinemas worldwide on the 23rd and 25th October. What’s more, tickets are on sale now.

If it goes well, who knows? ITV may well put vintage episodes of Crossroads on the big screen too, to try and cash in…
