Wait, Shonda Rhimes Wrote Crossroads?

The 6 things you didn't know about Britney Spears' debut film.

You probably thought you knew all there was to know about Crossroads, Britney Spears' first foray into the world of cinema. You knew that Taryn Manning and Zoe Saldana were both in it. You knew Britney covered Joan Jett's "I Love Rock and Roll" for the soundtrack. You knew that Kim Catrall played Britney's long lost mother. 

But as this article proves, you actually know nothing. See the evidence below and prepare for your mind to be blown.

1. Shonda Rhimes Wrote the Script

Yep, that Shonda Rhimes of Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder fame. 

2. Robert De Niro is a Britney Fan

He's the one who convinced Anson Mount (Britney's love interest) to do the movie. And he even ran Mount's lines with him and read Britney's parts. Take a minute now and imagine all of Lucy's lines read by Robert De Niro.

3. Britney Had Only 2 On-Set Requests

Tuna Lunchables and edamame. That's all.

4. Britney was Very Much in Love with Justin

Evidently she would doodle "Britney and Justin" all over the notebook her character used in the film.

5. There's a Reference to the Movie in the 'I Wanna Go' Music Video

If you look closely, you'll see the movie theater marquee has a sign for Crossroads 2: Cross Harder.

6. Britney May Be Up for a Sequel

It started when Zoe Saldana praised Britney during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live:
