Sony Pictures Acquires Film Rights To Britney Spears Musical

Sony Pictures has acquired the film rights to Once Upon a One More Time, a fairy tale fueled by the hit songs of Britney Spears according to Deadline.

Sony won an auction for stage version, which makes its world premieres this fall at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago, before heading to Broadway next year.

The film will be produced by John Davis' Davis Entertainment along with Spears and her manager Larry Rudolph.

Once Upon A Time... Cinderella, Snow White, and the other fairytale princesses gather for their book club, when - oh, baby baby! - a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps, spurring a royal revelation. Could there really be more to life than bird-made dresses and true love's kiss? Set to the songs of Britney Spears, the Princess of Pop herself, ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME is an uproarious, irreverent look at the towering challenges, charms, and choices involved in finding that most elusive of endings: Happily Ever After.

The musical features an original book by Jon Hartmere (The Upside, bare), with direction by Tony Award nominee Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) and Choreography by MTV Video Music Award nominees Keone & Mari Madrid (Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself"; "World of Dance").

Tickets will be available for purchase to the general public on Sunday, August 4, 2019. Groups of 10+ are on sale now, at 312-977-1710. New Broadway In Chicago season subscriptions will be available Sunday, April 7.
