Here's How Britney Spears Is Going To Make Huge Profits From The Re-release of ‘Crossroads’
Britney Spears will profit from the re-release of her 2002 movie Crossroads, Page Six has confirmed exclusively. The 41-year-old pop icon will be paid from the "back end," which is the portion of the project's overall earnings that goes to the contributor, a source told the outlet.
However, because the terms of her arrangement are confidential, not all of them were made public. In celebration of the publication of Spears' much-awaited memoir next month, the celebrated rom-com will return to theaters worldwide on Oct. 23 and 25, Trafalgar Releasing, Sony Music Entertainment, and RCA Records said in a joint press statement on September 21.
The Woman in Me, the much-awaited memoir by the Princess of Pop, is scheduled to hit the theatres on October 24. Crossroads had Spears playing Lucy, a young woman on a quest for self-discovery who traveled cross-country with her childhood friends, played by actresses Taryn Manning and Zoe Saldana.
Director Tamra Davis said at the time of the release that the cast and crew “had the best time in the world making this picture and the connection the actresses bring to their performances shows in every frame.” She continued, “The music will undoubtedly have audiences dancing and singing along and I know everyone will have as much fun watching these scenes as we had making them.”
Despite having only a $12 million budget, the critically acclaimed screenwriter Shonda Rhimes' movie generated more than $61 million in just its first weekend at the box office. The soundtrack to the film also included Britney Spears' number-one single I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman, and many fans at the time rushed to the theatres to see their favorite song on the backdrop of a movie screen.
The 2002 hit movie will be screened across 875 theaters around 24 different nations. Although Spears might be really excited about this iconic chick flick returning to the theatres, she has not yet made any comments as of now.

The Toxic singer has, however, revealed excitement for the publication of her upcoming autobiography. While talking about the memoir on Instagram in July, Spears shared that she “worked [her] ass off” in therapy to come up with the book. “You guys better like it. And if you don’t like it, that’s fine too,” she said.
Earlier this week, a source exclusively revealed to Page Six that Spears wrote the book without holding back and emphasized that "no topic was off limits." However, the Grammy winner's team does not believe she is prepared to do sit-down interviews, therefore she won't be touring the media to promote her memoir. A source asserted that it was Spears’ “choice” whether she wanted to do any press. “She’s a free woman. She’ll decide,” the insider said, adding, “She’s had offers and she doesn’t want to do anything.”
