Pop princess Britney Spears has released details of her second acting role - despite movie debut CROSSROADS being panned by critics.

The OVERPROTECTED singer will produce as well as star in TRADING PAINT - a project developed specifically for Spears and written by Lara Croft: TOMB RAIDER scribe JAMES V HART.

Trading Paint will be set in the world of NASCAR racing, which was immortalised in the Tom Cruise vehicle Days of Thunder back in 1990.

As with the Cruise film, Britney's effort will see a driver lose his nerve only to be steered back on track by the love interest's character.
