Paramount Animation president Mireille Soria is bringing girl power to the unit ó literally. The studio, which boasts a mostly female senior staff, is in early development on a Spice Girls movie among a slate eyeing two releases a year, starting in 2020.

All five members of the iconic '90s group ó Melanie Brown (Scary), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty), Geri Halliwell (Ginger) and Victoria Beckham (Posh) are on board, with Simon Fuller producing and Karen McCullah and Kiwi Smith writing the screenplay. The animated feature will include Spice Girls classics as well as new songs. The Spice Girls "had an idea that we've been developing," Soria tells The Hollywood Reporter. "They are very involved."

Paramount plans Spice Girls animation movie
This is all very exciting and the bit of new songs excites me the most!

Whoa! I am here for it even with new songs. Might be a good way to tie in new tracks, for sure, and some more touring!

Also, Paramount is good studio, so they seem to be in good hands!

I AM HERE FOR THIS!! wub.gif

This story originated over a year ago, but good to see it now seems to be developing and will go ahead.

I feel confident this will be a success. Simon and Vic being behind it must mean they have faith in it.

The tie ins/merch are endless, action figures, soundtrack, comic books etc. They really could strike gold if they successfully manage to combine super heroes (incredibly popular films) with musical films with soundtracks (hugely popular, think Greatest Showman, A star is born etc).

I'm all for the girls doing anything together...but...I really have no idea what to make of this animated film thing.

I guess because...there's nothing comparable? The Beatles did animated work...but that was during their heyday. Has there ever been a group that did a big budget animated film more than 20 years past their heyday? People clearly still love the girls as a live act...but with the way most everything else has gone for 20 years, how is this not considered a serious gamble for a studio?

And Paramount Animation may be a big name...but consider this. Their last three films crashed and burned with critics and didn't do especially well at the box office (with Monster Trucks being a fairly big bomb). Sonic the Hedgehog is on their schedule next...and had to be pushed back months when people freaked over the character design. As for Simon, he's a genius in certain respects...but I'm not sure why anyone would be confident in his movie producing history (...hey, From Justin to Kelly...)

And does 'new music' really mean the girls teaming up to write together again? I mean. I'd love that...but...is that really what that means or are we assuming? They could have a pet manta ray who sings for all we know.

Anyway. Hope the movie comes and proves me wrong. Sound issues aside, this tour looks like it's top notch. Don't want anything dragging down this new goodwill, y'know?
