Britney Spears’s much talked about memoir, The Woman in Me, has been flying off store shelves since making its debut back in October. Even if you haven’t snagged a copy yet, then you’ve probably heard the various audiobook excerpts (narrated by Michelle Williams) circulating the internet. 

The Woman in Me quickly became a New York Times bestseller, with more than 1.1 million copies sold in its first week, and there are already a few Hollywood A-listers lining up to turn the bombshell memoir into an on-screen adaptation. 

Earlier this month, Page Six reported that Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon and Margot Robbie are among the top celebrities trying to obtain the rights to the memoir. The publication also revealed that the Barbie star eagerly wants to turn The Woman in Me into a television show or a motion picture.

Even though the top-secret project is in its early stages, an unnamed source told Page Six that interest in the potential live adaptation is “only beginning to take shape.” 

According to a separate report published by The Ankler, the “Stronger” singer rescheduled a meeting with a potential producer because she “didn’t feel up to it.” To put it plainly, Spears felt “overwhelmed by the response” to the memoir and the overall “media frenzy surrounding it.” 

But for now, her team is “hold[ing] off on making any major decisions about where the rights end up until she has time to catch her breath.”
