The singer was apparently chosen by the Pulp Fiction director to play dancer Varla in a remake of the 1965 cult film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

The movie sees three thrill-seeking strippers encountering a young couple in the desert.

Spears' character murders the boyfriend with her bare hands before taking the girlfriend hostage. The troubled singer will also have sex scenes with another girl before the drama ends in a blood-bath

How can anyone hear the title “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! “ and not think “Quentin Tarentino”?

Will this be the nadir of Britney’s career, or a resuscitation?

Now that she’s not burdened with her children; she can resume her career.

She’s jumped the shark and I doubt that a film like this will do anything to further her career. In fact, I can’t believe she signed on to this. Or that her dad allowed her to. Shades of Lohan in I Know Who Killed Me. Heard the audience laughed in all the wrong places.

At the pace Tarantino makes a film, we should expect this to hit screens around 2018

So, is she a lesbian who kills? Or does she kill lesbians?

I agree. Spears cannot even approach Tura Satana. And aside from the fact that I cannot stand Hollywood's barrel-scraping remakes, I wish Tarantino would leave well enough alone. The original film is the classic Russ Meyer film, one of the greats in the Trash genre. I see no reason that it should be remade. I hope he doesn't do for it what he did to "Shurayukihime."

Great.
Now, instead of making poor rip-offs of the genre, he’s going for the remake.

What next?

I was barely a teen when the original movie came to our local drive-in. Even then, I knew it was camp. The hollywoodies, now, don’t get camp. They have to turn a good time into a “serious” piece of art. I’ve never cared for Tarantino stuff and this will be a flop, big time. He’s been worshipped for being so innovative, but apparently has run dry in the idea department. Britney will have to get a bigger boob job if she wants to compare to the original stars. They were so tacky, but so awesome.

Well, at least she is sticking to form and not venturing out of her depth!

I don’t know who is going to make more of a mess of this trashy, culty movie to be. Tarantino (snails pace, but thinks his ‘works’ are Louvre material) or the Varla (BritBrit). Madonna, sadly, could school Spears with her acting skills. Just for giggle who are they casting as the bf? Zach Effron or one of the Jonas Brothers?

Shades of Lohan in I Know Who Killed Me.

From the Agony Booth snarky review:

Sivertson: Alright, Lindsay. In this scene, you're coked off your ass.
Lohan: What? How did you know?
Sivertson: [pause] No. I mean your character is coked off her ass.
Lohan: What? Oh! Oh! Right, right, right.

And this empty-headed celebrity slut is watched and listened to by millions of young Americans. Seems to me that the entertainment industry is doing all it can to poison and corrupt the minds of young Americans.
All because some considered her sexy when she was underage and the entertainment industry saw an opportunity to rake in some money.
When she gets fat or old the entertainment industry will drop her and run to the latest teeny-bopper who is willing to act like a whore and make a lot of money.
This is the worst of American Pop Culture, and it’s disgusting.

There was little blood and no sexual activity, or nudity in the original.

People have been “attepting” to remake this film for decades now.

Russ Meyer was working on it himself in the 1990s.

I don’t think anything will ever come of it. I think that this is just a way to get several names in print.

She reportedly threw a robber through a wall when he made the mistake of breaking into her home.

And she also worked as a dental assistant in later years.

Fave line from the Russ Meyer original:

Gas Station Attendent (staring at Turum's breasts): "It's nice to see a group of girls like you out discovering America."

Turum: "You won't find it DOWN THERE, Columbus!"

Britney remains sexy only if you find the single moms who shop for lingerie in Wal Mart to be sexy. "My baby drops in September, y'all!"
