Sweetie, Dahling! Grab a pack of smokes and a good bottle of Bollinger and get ready for a movie version of the hit British comedy Absolutely Fabulous. While out on the road promoting her book Bonkers, Jennifer Saunders revealed to Gay Times that she is all for either a movie version or a return to television, but says her partner-in-crime
Patsy Joanna Lumley is gung-ho about a movie version.
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.
