‘‘I see her scramble for words and I don’t know her but when I look at pictures of her I feel I can tell her story in the right way,’’  the Enola Holmes 2 star says. Brown makes a compelling case for why she, as a British, would play the ideal Britney Spears, especially since she’s already demonstrated her singing talent by singing Britney Spears’ Gimme More in a game with her BFF Noah Schnapp.
