Curse of the Spice Girls.
A string of famous names have had to be dropped from the movie Spiceworld.
Pop veteran Gary Glitter may be axed after he was arrested for allegedly possessing child porn.
Gary makes a spectacular appearance in the movie when the girls perform his hit Leader of the Gang, in Milan, Italy.
But the producers may decide the scene should end up on the cutting room floor.
If axed, he wouldn't be the first to suffer the fate.
Gianni Versace, Mother Teresa and Princess Diana were mentioned in the script before their deaths.
A movie insider said: "It's incredibly spooky. The script had the girls naming all three of these people.
"But almost as soon as the various scenes were filmed, they died.
"First Gianni Versace, then Princess Diana and Mother Teresa."
Frank Bruno's planned appearance in the movie, which is released at Christmas, was also plagued by disaster.
The boxer suddenly quit the set halfway through shooting his scenes.
He claimed the reason he left was his two-year-old son Franklin had been banned from having his photo taken with the girls.
