LONDON - JUNE 28:  (UK TABLOID NEWSPAPERS OUT) Spice Girls (L-R) Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm (Mel C), Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown (Mel B) attend a press conference to announce their forthcoming world tour at the O2 Arena, Greenwich on June 28, 2007 in London, England.

Exciting news for anyone who still misses the Spice Girls – they’re back (again), and this time they’ll be making a musical movie as a follow up to their first film, Spice World which came out back in 1997. All five original members, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm have apparently signed on for the film, which is going to be taken from the stage musical Viva Forever, which features some of their greatest hits.

The person behind the film? Judy Craymer, who put together Mamma Mia! so I’m guessing their hoping for a similar success. Emma Bunton made a comment on the new film:

“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.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.”

You would have thought their failed comeback tour would have been enough to kill the Spice Girls for good, but they just keep going..
