The Stranger Things actor revealed that she wants to play the Toxic singer on the big screen during an interview on The Drew Barrymore show on Monday.
During the chat, the 18-year-old said that Spears’ story “resonated” with her being a fellow child star and having grown up in the public eye.
Brown said: “I want to play a real person and I think for me, Britney. [It] would be Britney Spears. I think her story, first of all, resonates with me
“Just growing up in the public eye watching her videos, watching interviews of how when she was younger. I mean, same thing with you [Drew Barrymore].
“I see the scramble for words [in her interviews] and I don’t know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way - and hers only.”
However, Spears seemed less than impressed with Brown’s suggestion and appeared to reference her comments in a new Instagram post.
She penned: “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life … dude I’m not dead !!!”
Elsewhere in her post, the Womaniser hitmaker blasted her parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, as well as the conservatorship she was under for 12 years.
Spears added: “Good news, good news !!! Still breathing … it’s funny the same two people who gave me life are the same exact 2 people who took it away … but guess what !!!
“I’m alive and I’m breathing again !!!”
Brown is currently promoting her new Netflix film Enola Holmes 2 opposite Henry Cavill and the fifth, and final series, of Stranger Things is set to be released next year.
The teen also founded the beauty line Florence by Mills and has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2018.
