Crossroads has been getting a lot of attention lately following the release of Britney Spears‘ memoir titled The Woman in Me.
The film’s director Tamra Davis recently did an interview where she talked about the potential of a sequel, which she says there have been conversations about following up with the 2002 movie.
“I’m currently working with Van Toffler, who was the producer on it, and he’s [mentioned it],” Davis told EW in an interview. “I think he’s been talking to Britney about it, with her management. Britney, I don’t think she really wants to act so much, but I know Ann [Carli] spoke to Shonda [Rhimes] about something, and Shonda had an idea, so who knows if that will have life.”
Before Grey’s Anatomy, Rhimes wrote the script for the film that also starred Anson Mount, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning, Kim Cattrall and Dan Aykroyd. In the event that a sequel happens, Davis hopes that Rhimes is involved with it “because she’s just so brilliant.”
“You could see on her first feature film what an incredible voice she had and her understanding of female characters,” she added. “We were all girls behind the camera telling this story about girls in front of the camera. It was such an important voice at that time.”
In her memoir, Spears opened up about filming and didn’t have a great experience method acting saying that after wrapping up the movie she said she was done with acting. Spears recalled not being herself while doing the film and it was difficult for her “to break out of character.”
“I imagine there are people in the acting field who have dealt with something like that, where they had trouble separating themselves from a character,” she said in an excerpt from her memoir that People shared. “I hope I never get close to that occupational hazard again. Living that way, being half yourself and half a fictional character, is messed up. After a while you don’t know what’s real anymore.”
