Are the Spice Girls planning a big screen reunion? Sadly, it doesn't seem likely—at least, according to Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice. 

Earlier this week, an industry insider claimed to British tabloid The Sun that the pop group is planning a sequel to their 1997 film Spice World

"The girls have been talking about how to mark the film's anniversary and are actively considering making a tongue-in-cheek sequel," the source shared. "They have approached a screenwriter who is considering working on the project and making tentative steps forward."

Though the project is said to be in "early stages," they are talking to "established names" in the business and taking the comeback film "seriously." 

Alas, Victoria teased that this story is far from the truth. In a since-deleted Instagram Story, Victoria shared a post about the rumors, along with the caption, "Has somebody got something to tell me?" She added a laughing-crying emoji to really drive the point home.

For the tragically uninitiated, Spice World followed the Spice Girls—which also consisted of Melanie Brown ("Scary Spice"), Melanie Chisholm ("Sporty Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice") and Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice")—as they prepare for the biggest performance of their lives at Royal Albert Hall. Along the way, the girls fight off nosy press, help deliver a baby and even encounter aliens. (Yes, aliens.)

Spice Girls Through the Years

Is it possible that Victoria is simply in the dark about a reunion movie? It's possible, as she chose not to join the other members of the group for a reunion tour in 2019. She announced the news on social media in 2018, writing, "I won't be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year."

Mel C, however, shut down any rumors that there was bad blood between Victoria and the other women.

"We really support each other and the decisions that we make and we really support her and she's really supporting us," Mel C said at the time on Emma's radio show Heart Breakfast. "And I think that's a big part of our ethos."




While the Spice Girls may be forever, it doesn't seem like a sequel to Spice World is in the least, for now.
