"It was just amazing. I was surrounded by amazing women – from the director, Tamra [Davis], to the producer, [Ann] Carli. And Shonda, the writer. Shonda Rhimes! Come on!" she told Entertainment Tonight.

"And Britney [Spears], and Taryn [Manning], and myself, and Anson Mount [who played Ben in the film]. It just felt like it was such a beautiful experience."

Saldaña added that Spears was "a natural, from the beginning".

Last year, Crossroads director Tamra Davis admitted that writer Shonda Rhimes had "an idea" for a potential sequel, adding that the movie's producer was in touch with Spears's management.

At the time, the director also confirmed that the movie could be reaching a streaming deal, telling Entertainment Weekly: "[Britney] wanted it to help launch her book. One phone call from Britney and it's available!

"I think that's what they're going to work on now, is getting a streaming deal. I'm sure we will. They're dealing with offers now."

Crossroads will be available on Netflix globally from February 15.
