Jennifer Saunders has been everywhere promoting her new book, Bonkers, and in a recent interview with Gay Times she revealed that after much back and forth on the idea, a movie version of Absolutely Fabulous may finally be happening.
Well, possibly a movie or possibly a televsion series, it’s just that Joanna Lumley is more interested in the idea of a film.
Jennifer told the mag:
Well Joanna really wants a film. I don’t think she’s up for a TV series. I think she wants… “Lovely film, South of France, darling. Lovely film in the South of France.” I’ve just got to think of a really, really good plot because that’s where films fall down, when they haven’t quite got the plot worked out and it’s just a series of sketches. Really good plot. Really good actors. And a fucking good lighting/camera man.
Film or TV, we don’t care, just make it happen people.
Of course, if you really need a fix of Absolutely Fabulous now, just head here for plenty of episodes online.
