So if this was the halfway mark on an E! True Hollywood Story, we'd segue from "Britney's manager accused of drugging her, gets restraining order issued against him" to "Quentin Tarantino offers Spears a role as a lesbian stripper/murderer in a remake of Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" (Boy would I like to be the voiceover guy during that episode!)

Back in January, Variety's Liz Smith reported that Tarantino was interested in Britney Spears for a role in his Pussycat remake, along with Eva Mendes and Kim Kardashian. (Quick, which one of those three never starred in a moronic reality show?) Now, either the Telegraph is re-running a six-month-old rumor in order to grab some traffic, or Tarantino finally made this particular casting choice official. Says the Telegraph: "Spears' character murders the boyfriend with her bare hands before taking the girlfriend hostage. The troubled singer will also have sex scenes with another girl before the drama ends in a blood-bath."

Well, that's one way to get your career back on track.

No word on the other two girls, or whether Mendes and Kardashian are still being considered, but for now we'll assume a club remix of "Baby Hit Me One More Time" will be featured on the soundtrack.
