Sony Pictures has picked up the rights to a musical film based on the music of Britney Spears called Once Upon a One More Time, according to Deadline. The studio won the auction for the musical, which is headed to Broadway right now. Once Upon a One More Time will premiere in the fall at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago before it hits the Great White Way in New York City next year.
John Davis’ Davis Entertainment will produce Once Upon a One More Time with Spears and her manager Larry Rudolph, according to the site. In the film, Cinderella, Snow White and various fairy tale princesses “gather for their book club when a rogue fairy godmother drops “The Feminine Mystique” into their corseted laps, spurring a royal revelation.
The Britney Spears songs included in the musical include “Oops I Did It Again,” “Lucky,” “Circus,” and “Toxic.” The original musical was written by Jon Hartmere and is directed by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages). The show is choreographed by Keone and Mari Madrid (Love Yourself).
