A Spice Girls documentary? Well… OK.
The Daily Mirror reports that a biopic of the mega-selling ’90s pop group is in the works, timed to appear alongside the December premiere of their West End musical Viva Forever
The 90-minute feature would include one-on-one interviews with all of the girls. So far Baby Spice (Emma Bunton), Sporty Spice (Melanie Chisholm), Scary Spice (Melanie Brown), and Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell) are all on board, but Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) needs to sign off on the project in order for it to become a reality.
An anonymous TV source underscored the earth-shattering importance of this project to the Mirror:
“With worldwide sales of over 75 million, they defined a generation. But their full story has never been told. Producers want to spend time getting to know each of the girls and let viewers feel they’ve got the real insight into their lives.”
The last time fans saw the Spice Girls on the big screen was in the 1997 film Spice World, in which the girls cruised around London in a double-decker bus decorated with the Union Jack. (The bus was actually sold on eBay in 2008.)
In fact, a Spice Girl documentary called Seven Days That Shook The Spice Girls — detailing seven major incidents that defined the group’s career — actually aired on British television on September 10, 2002 — bizarre timing given the one-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks the next day.
Until Posh Spice makes up her mind, you can relive the group’s greatest hits here.
