Newlywed pop star Britney Spears is busy learning lines for her second movie role, which begins filming later this month (MAR05).

The TOXIC singer is set to play door-to-door saleswoman DREW HEART alongside Cher, Tim Allen and Bette Midler in comedy IN THE PINK.

Spears' first big screen outing in road movie CROSSROADS in 2002 was panned by critics and failed to set the box office alight.

A friend enthuses, "Britney really wanted this part - it's a good script and she's determined to prove to her doubters that she can be funny."
