The Wrap just reported that the “Absolutely Fabulous” movie is officially a go. Which of course is absolutely fabulous news… Though we are getting a little tired of hearing it. It feels like the film has been confirmed 40 times in the past few years. Just make it already!
“There is a plot [for the movie] and that’s the miracle. It involves all the main characters and virtually everyone that’s ever been in the series, all those characters and we’re in London and sometimes we might go to the South of France, I’m hoping,” Jennifer Saunders said. “I’m waiting for the budget. It could be anywhere — if it’s a big budget it will be the Bahamas. I’ve got another deadline on May 8th … and then we’ll probably do it in the autumn.”
“Probably” isn’t actually a full on confirmation of filming. We will still take it… But the next time we want to hear about the “Ab Fab” movie is when we get the first official image from set.
