Britney Spears isn’t ready for the biopic treatment just yet.
The “Toxic” singer has seemingly shut down hopes that audiences will soon be able to catch a biopic all about her life.
It comes after Millie Bobby Brown said that she would love to play the pop icon in a movie.
Spears appeared to react to the “Stranger Things” star in the caption of her latest Instagram post, which features a photo of some wooden doors. She wrote: “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life…dude I’m not dead !!!”
Spears continued: “Although it’s pretty fucking clear they preferred me dead … I guess my family is going to lock their doors now!!! Either way … I just want to say hi and share these fabulous doors!!! I did kinda post too much this week … I’m embarrassed!!! I get it … oh well !!! Have a good day!!!”
Brown shared during Monday’s episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show” that Spears’ life story “resonates” with her and that playing Spears would be her dream role.
When asked what was on her bucket list as an actor and producer, she replied: “I want to play a real person and I think for me, [it] would be Britney Spears.”
The 18-year-old actor continued: “I think her story, first of all, resonates with me. Growing up in the public eye, watching her videos and watching interviews of her when she was younger.”
Brown added that while she doesn’t think she bears much physical resemblance to the “Hold Me Closer” singer, “I feel like I could tell her story in the right way — and hers only.”
There are certainly some similarities between the two stars.
Spears first got into performing in 1989 by starring in “The All New Mickey Mouse Club” at the age of 11 alongside Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. At 16, she got her big break with her debut album, “…Baby One More Time.”
Meanwhile, the “Enola Holmes” star began acting at the age of 9, guest-starring on a show called “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” in 2013. Her breakout role came with Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” which she joined when she was 12.
Although Spears might not be up for working with the young star, it seems that another musical icon is.
During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Mariah Carey said that she and Brown have a super secret project in the works that may or may not be of a musical nature.
“Maybe it’s not just musical,” Carey said, not giving too much away. “I don’t know. I can’t say what it is. It’s fun tings.”
Earlier this month, Carey — along with her 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom she shares with Nick Cannon — hit the red carpet for the premiere of the British star’s latest movie, Netflix’s “Enola Holmes 2.”
