Once Upon a One More Time: Sony Acquires Britney Spears musical
Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures acquired the screen rights to Britney Spears’ Once Upon a One More Time musical after winning an auction.
Once Upon a One More Time will premiere in Chicago this fall at the James M. Nederlander Theatre before making its way to Broadway in 2020. The feature film version of the musical will be produced by Spears, her manager Larry Rudolph, and John Davis’ David Entertainment.
In the movie, Cinderella, Snow White, and other 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 musical features such Spears hits as “Oops I Did It Again,” “Lucky,” “Circus,” and “Toxic.”
Once Upon a One More Time will feature an original book by Jon Hartmere. Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) is set to direct. Keone and Mari Madrid will serve as choreographers.
