Pop icon and wowlebrity Britney Spears is returning to the big screen after an absence of 17 years, playing a ghost version of herself in the upcoming Corporate Animals with Demi Moore.
Director Patrick Brice‘s recently revealed the news during a Los Angeles Times panel at Sundance Film Festival.
“One of our characters — Calum Worthy’s character, Aidan — is obsessed with Britney Spears, and there’s a runner of him as he’s going crazy thinking that Britney is speaking to him from the walls,” director Patrick Brice explained. “Through a series of connections we were able to get 10 minutes of [Britney’s] time to record this, which was so awesome.”
The horror comedy plot is a CEO megalomaniac (Demi Moore) who may or may not be into cannibalism and takes her employees on a team-building exercise to a cave in New Mexico.
“As [Calum Worthy’s character, Aidan] is also getting gangrene, so he is starting to hallucinate,” Moore explained, before Williams admitted she was “happy to have that energy in the film.”
While Corporate Animals premiered on Tuesday at Sundance, a theatrical release for the film has not yet been scheduled.
