Former SPICE GIRL Geri Halliwell's quest to conquer America has taken a positive turn - she's reportedly dating top US movie producer Steve Chasman.

According to British tabloid the DAILY MIRROR, Geri is enjoying a fling with the hunky movie-maker, and he is confident he can help her carve out a successful career on American TV screens.

An insider says, "They've got a very free relationship and sparks were flying the minute they met. It's quite on and off - but they move in the same circles and are clearly very happy in each other's company."

Sexy Geri - who has already made a guest appearance on hit American comedy SEX AND THE CITY - is now sporting a curvier figure, and friends are convinced her new physique is what attracted Chasman to her.

One pal says, "He's an extremely good looking guy. And he appreciates a sexy, busty woman. He's a great guy - he's very sporty and finds it easy to play the gentleman. He's a real man's man."
