"Crossroads" stars Spears, Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning as three childhood friends who go on a cross-country road trip after eight years apart. The film was written by "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes and directed by Tamra Davis.

Davis said in a press release she is "beyond thrilled" for her film to be released in theaters again and that she is "grateful" for fans to "see Britney shine again."

"I recently rewatched 'Crossroads' and was so enthralled with the time capsule of nostalgia that this incredible ensemble cast brings to the screen," Davis continued. "Britney is absolutely breathtaking to watch, and Shonda is showing us her early expertise in writing complicated female characters. We had the best time in the world making this picture and the connection the actresses bring to their performances shows in every frame."

Davis concluded, "The music will undoubtedly have audiences dancing and singing along and I know everyone will have as much fun watching these scenes as we had making them."
