Bad News – No Spice Girls Movie Sequel In Works

We hate having to report bad news here, so it is with a heavy heart that we tell you that British pop tarts the Spice Girls have denied that they are working on a followup film to their film Spice World.

So any unanswered questions you may have from the first film will continue to remain a mystery for now.

The group had a hit in 1997 with the film Spice World, a movie that many viewed as a post-feminist Hard Day’s Night. Released at the height of the band’s popularity, it managed to gross an estimated $75 million in worldwide box office receipts.

The film featured Roger Moore, Meatloaf, Elvis Costello, George Wendt, Elton John, Bob Geldof and Jennifer Saunders in supporting and cameo roles.

Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton broke the news via her twitter feed –

Shockingly, it turns out that the normally rock solid British tabloid press got their facts when they reported that the pop group was working with producer Judy Craymer on a film version of their currently in development stage musical. While the quintet are currently collaborating with Craymer, who originated the idea for the musical Mamma Mia! which featured the songs of 1970s pop group ABBA, on a show entitled Viva Forever! which will feature their own music, there is no plans in discussion about translating the as yet unstaged show to film.

Yeah, the first couple of days after San Diego Comic Con are always kind of slow.
