Spice Girls: The Musical?

Betsy Waldman / October 15, 2009

Attention all Spice Girls fans! The girl group isn’t just reuniting for the World Cup next year, they totally want to launch their own musical in London!

The genius plan? Ginger Spice aka Geri Halliwell wants to design a a rags-to-riches two hour “pop extravaganza,” featuring five new actresses to play the famous ladies on stage!

A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper:

“The project is Geri’s baby really but all the girls are backing it. The idea is for five relatively unknown actresses to take the parts and hopefully the girls will each have a say in who is cast.”

According to the report, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham are all on board to be involved in the project as well, including the casting process.

Whoever lands the five parts has a lot to live up to, to say the least!
