Film her, baby…one more time? Reports say Britney Spears will shoot her first feature, a $10 million film cofinanced by her label, Jive Records, this spring. The untitled road tripper follows three pals on their way to — who’dathunkit? — a music contest. Sounds like a perfect cinematic debut — except oops!… She’s done it before. Yep, the doe eyed divette already appeared in ”Longshot,” a romantic comedy filmed in 1999 under the aegis of teen pop impresario Louis J. Pearlman.

The pic, which Pearlman’s team hopes to release in late spring, features tunes and walk ons from ”TRL” regulars like LFO and O-Town. (Even Brit’s beau Justin Timberlake, pops up as a valet.) But don’t expect an Oscar campaign for Britney. ”We only had her for half an hour,” says ”Longshot” director Lionel Martin. ”She plays a flight attendant. The captain of the plane is Kenny Rogers. The movie has a bit of that ‘Airplane!’ feel.” We can hear it now: ”Britney, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?”
