Britney Spears stripperUpdate: That didn’t last long. Britney’s reps have come out and announced that she’ll be focusing on her next album and not doing any movies. More details at Snark Food.

Let me say up front that I am cautiously reporting this under the “alleged” category because the whole thing sounds ludicrous. That said, the UK’s Telegraph is reporting that Britney Spears has been handpicked by Quentin Tarantino to star in his project “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”

Problem is Tarantino’s still in pre-production of “Inglorious Bastards”, so I highly doubt he’s on the side doing some casting for a still far-off film. Another problem is the idea of Britney Spears being used as a stripper, or much of anything for that point, in a movie. She’s gone. She’s done. And there’s no way Tarantino would do a publicity stunt like that. Or would he?

A source said: “Quentin is convinced Britney will be brilliant. She’s delighted. She thinks it could turn her career around.

“It is perfect Tarantino material. He wanted to get Britney first. She’s playing the most important character.”

If it is true, which it’s not, Spears’ character, Varla, would be on of the three strippers who head off in search of thrill kills and encounter a couple alone in the desert. Hmm, perhaps this is an elaborate plan to draw Spears out into the desert and then leave her there. It’s so crazy, it just might work!
