Britney Spears is set to make a profit from the re-release of her 2002 film, “Crossroads,” Page Six can exclusively confirm.
A source tells us the pop icon, 41, will receive money from the “back end,” which is when the contributor of a project gets a percentage of the work’s overall profit.
The exact details of her deal, however, were not disclosed as we’re told the terms are confidential.
Trafalgar Releasing, Sony Music Entertainment and RCA Records announced via a press release Thursday that the beloved rom-com will be hitting theaters globally again on Oct. 23 and 25 in honor of the release of Spears’ highly anticipated memoir next month.
The Princess of Pop’s tell-all book, “The Woman in Me,” is due out in stores Oct. 24.
In “Crossroads,” Spears landed her first lead role as Lucy, a young woman on a journey for self-discovery who went on a cross-country trip with her childhood friends, played by Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning.
Director Tamra Davis recalled in the release that the cast and crew “had the best time in the world making this picture and the connection the actresses bring to their performances shows in every frame.”
“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,” she added.
The film, written by critically-acclaimed screenwriter Shonda Rhimes, amassed more than $61 million in the box office during its original release despite being made with a budget of just $12 million.
The movie’s soundtrack also featured Spears’ chart-topping hit “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”
“Crossroads” will be shown in 875 theaters across 24 countries worldwide next month.

Spears has not yet issued a statement on the flick being shared with a brand new audience. Her reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
However, the “Toxic” singer has expressed excitement for the release of her upcoming memoir.
In July, Spears wrote via Instagram that she had “worked [her] ass off” in therapy in order to write it.
“You guys better like it. And if you don’t like it, that’s fine too,” she concluded.
A source exclusively told Page Six earlier this week that Spears did not hold back when penning the tome and insisted that “no topic was off limits.”
The Grammy winner will not be hitting the media circuit to promote her memoir, though, as Page Six learned earlier this week that her team does not feel she is ready to do sit-down interviews.
However, one source claimed that it was Spears’ “choice” whether she wanted to do any press.
“She’s a free woman. She’ll decide,” an insider said Thursday, adding, “She’s had offers and she doesn’t want to do anything.”
