Darlings, you’ll want to set down the champagne before you hear this. Then, you’ll want to pick it up, down it, and pour another glass.
Jennifer Saunders, 56, has announced that an Ab Fab feature is most certainly happening in 2015.
Saunders, who also plays mother-of-the-century and PR diva extraordinaire Edina in the show, has finished writing a script for a movie that has apparently been in the works since the series first went off the air in 1995.
She told the Sunday People, “I’ve finished the first draft. I’m feeling euphoric. My proper New Year’s resolution is to do the film, otherwise it’ll be a pointless year of procrastination.”
Edina’s daughter Saffy, played by Julia Sawalha, 46, has naturally been written into the script. By now she must be a doctor or something, but she’ll never be too old to shake her head at Mum’s antics.
Jen joked she would like to see Angelina Jolie, 39, replacing Joanna Lumley, 68, as Patsy and an orangutan playing her part.
“That would be funny, Angelina Jolie and an orangutan.”
We’re not sure what Jen was smoking when she made those casting decisions, but we’ll be perfectly happy with the original cast, thank you.
