Former SPICE GIRL Victoria Beckham is hotly pursuing a big screen career - by begging to screen test for The Producers.

The 2 BECOME 1 star made enquiries to studio UNIVERSAL, who are remaking the Gene Wilder classic after enjoying a revival on New York's legendary theatre strip, Broadway.

Victoria believes the film, which is about a con artist who sets out to assemble the worst musical cast ever, would boost her ailing career.

If successful, the pretty chanteuse will join Broadway stars MATTHEW BRODERICK and Nathan Lane on the cast list.
