Pop beauty Britney Spears is eager to join the cast of the next X-Men movie - and is reportedly seeking a non-speaking role.

The OOPS!...I DID IT AGAIN singer - whose debut film CROSSROADS was a critical flop - is reportedly in talks to provide a show-stopping cameo in the third installment of the hit sci-fi franchise.

A source close to the singer tells British magazine NEW, "She knows that sci-fi is big and she believe this is the right movie to be seen in."

This is the third movie the SLAVE 4 U singer has been attached to in recent months.

She has been linked to the role of DAISY in a film adaptation of TV series Dukes Of Hazzard, and she's also slated to be the love interest in a motor racing movie reminiscent of Tom Cruise hit Days of Thunder.
