The best-selling girl group of the ’90s are headed back to theaters to “spice up your life” with a sequel to their critically-panned, but cult-revered cinema effort, Spice World.
Earlier this year, The Spice Girls– Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, and Melanie Chisholm — announced that they have teamed up with Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer to develop a Viva Forever, a West End musical based on their hit catalogue.
Now we hear that the “Wannabe” hitmakers hope to adapt the musical into a sequel to 1997’s Spice World.
“We’re all involved in the new Spice Girls film, which is being done by Judy Craymer and the team behind Mamma Mia! We email each other ideas and we are overjoyed it’s happening,” Emma “Baby” Bunton revealed to the Daily Mail on Friday.
Bunton, now 34, says despite the first movie being panned by critics, the five-piece are all excited about the possibility of a follow-up.
“We would’ve liked to do another film, but, after Spice World, there was an album, then a tour and then Geri left, so it didn’t happen.”
