Joanna Lumley has made a lot of our days, and it’s only early in the morning. She has officially confirmed that the Absolutely Fabulous movie will be in production soon.
This has been happening for a while, apparently, as Joanna said that the script itself is finished and production in October.
The script has been written by Jennifer Saunders, who will be returning to her role as Edina Monsoon.
“It’ll all be shot on location. It is going to be ravishingly funny! Very gorgeous… and completely fabulous!”
Apparently Joanna might need a bit of a leg up when playing Patsy, specifically with her signature beehive.
“I usually use my own hair, and that’s usually for one show a week in front of an audience. But when you’re shooting for seven or eight weeks every day, I think I’ll give it a bit of a break.”
All the familiar faces will be returning, including Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks.
Who’s ready for a nostalgia trip?
