God in Heaven! Britney Spears in new NASCAR themed movie

Not sure if this is the appropriate place for it...if not, mods please move. But I saw this and I'm seriously wondering whether or not a benevolent God does exist:

Spears to play team-owner's daughter
ESPN.com news services



Spears
Britney Spears and NASCAR could be coming to a theater near you.

The racing league and Spears' production company were expected to announce on Monday plans for a NASCAR-themed movie in which Spears will star, according to the Sports Business Journal.

NASCAR will help to market the film, which will contain race footage and drivers appearing as themselves. Spears will reportedly play a daughter of a race team owner who coaxes a former NASCAR driver to return to the sport."

NASCAR will receive licensing fees for use of race footage and tracks will be paid for access, according to the Sports Business Journal's report, and have a "profit participation in the end gross." The movie is expected to cost $50 million.

"Britney herself has a lot of the values that represent NASCAR and her dad is a big NASCAR fan," said NASCAR vice president of broadcasting Paul Brooks. "She is close with her family, she's from Louisiana and represents true Americana."

The London Sun had reported earlier that Spears was a fan of "Days of Thunder," and the new NASCAR movie would begin filming in October. But Spears' publicist, Lisa Kasteler, told ESPN.com earlier this month that "the report is premature and she hasn't decided on anything yet."

This movie would not be Spears' first foray into the NASCAR world. The singer served as grand marshal of the 2001 Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway

Put Rick Fox in there as the former NASCAR driver and I bet you'll see it.

Since when do we Talk about Movies in the Sports Forum?

And The Dan Patrick radio show has been taking ideas for the name of this soon to be box-office dud. My favorite so far, Rear-Ended

This sounds more like Driven than Days of Thunder

Call it Driven on Any Given Sunday
