Prepare yourself, Brit fans; this is going to be a bumpy ride. Though it鈥檚 not set to be unleashed upon the pop-lovin鈥 public until sometime next February, people are already freaking out about Lifetime鈥檚 unauthorized Britney Spears biopic 鈥 aptly and simple titled Britney 鈥 and really, we can鈥檛 blame 鈥榚m. With pics being released that show a cast that barely resembles the folks they鈥檙e apparently portraying, this could very well be your most beloved thing to hate in 2017, and we have all the deets you need to know.

Tonight was unforgettable 馃挮 Thank you #VMAs and thank you to my amazing fans!

First and foremost, you鈥檒l probably want to know that Britney Spears is not behind the project鈥 at all. Not only has she had no hand in the biopic, she鈥檚 apparently pretty darn displeased about the entire sitch. As are fans鈥

Secondly, the WTF casting decisions really have folks scratching their heads. With Natasha Bassett stepping into the role of Brit herself, Clayton Chitty will play her ex Kevin Federline, while Nathan Keyes will be your new Justin Timerberlake.

Fans are not seeing the resemblance 鈥 and they鈥檙e not the only names you鈥檒l recognize (even if the actors鈥 looks don鈥檛 hint at the parts they鈥檙e playing). Paris Hilton, Jenna Dewan and Britney鈥檚 first (super brief) hubby, Jason Alexander, will also pop up along the way.

Spanning Britney鈥檚 start in the Mickey Mouse Club and epic rise to fame, her relationship with Justin, her marriages and resulting splits, as well as her 鈥渇all from grace and eventual triumph and resurrection,鈥 this looks to be so incredibly bad. We can鈥檛 wait! And we鈥檙e not the only ones鈥
