The Spice Girls reunion tour is set to be made into a movie produced by David Beckham, according to a music source who spoke exclusively to RadarOnline.com!
Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell thrilled fans recently as it was confirmed they were getting back together, but now insiders reveal the girl group is teaming up with Posh Spice’s hubby and band manager Simon Fuller to rake in “half a billion dollars” by tacking on a movie deal.
As fans know, Victoria Beckham told Vogue there would be no reunion tour, but it appears she’s changed her mind as sources tell Radar: “David Beckham is on board as a partner in it and that’s how they’re getting Victoria to do it.”
The girls have agreed to reunite for a series of concerts in the UK and the U.S. and it’s been said they’ve all signed on the dotted line for the gig.
The insider says the flick will be based on behind-the-scenes video of their concert tour, and are said to be lining up big celebrity names to make cameos in the movie.
Victoria hasn’t been easy to deal with in the process, however. As Radar previously reported exclusively, there was initially a crimp in the plans for a reunion tour because “Victoria wants more money.”
“When the girls were famous everything was split 6 ways between them and manager Simon Fuller, who was considered the sixth ‘Spice Girl.’
“But Victoria has made it clear that the old ways of doing business are no longer acceptable to her,” and insider told Radar earlier this month. “She wants a much bigger percentage than one sixth!”
The Spice Girls split back in 2000, but have since performed together on a number of occasions, including a 2007 world tour.
Their last performance happened in London for the 2012 Olympics.
