Fox News reports that French producer Phillippe Rebboah (“The Guitar”) is reportedly planning to start shooting a satire entitled “Sweet Baby Jesus” in March and wants Britney Spears to play the Virgin Mary.
“Spears, 26, would play a pregnant 19-year-old unsure of her baby’s paternity who goes into labor on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Md., as rumors swirl that the birth is Jesus Christ’s second coming. Uhad to convince my partners, because they were like, ‘Oh, no. Britney?’ But I thought it was brilliant” said Rebboah whilst talking to US Weekly.
Although the producer told the mag that Spears was “reviewing the script,” sources for Spears claim the chances of Brit taking the part are zilch. Calls to Brit’s representatives were not returned.
