As if we weren’t already excited enough about the new Absolutely Fabulous movie, a hint has us buzzing. According to The Spectator, a casting call recently went out for
“”a gang of drag queens” and “camp fantastic looking queers”
The ad was specifically looking for eight drag queens to play larger parts, 70 as part of an audience and a number of lookalikes – including Xtina & Cher. (Chad Michaels alert… this might be even better than Snatch Game!)
It’s also been rumoured that Harry Styles is going to be starring too. Joanna Lumley said that Styles would be her ideal casting to play Patsy’s love interest;
“I think Pasty would very much like to paired up with Harry Styles, who wouldn’t? He’s gorgeous, isn’t he?”
Old favourites Julia Sawalha (Saffy) and Jane Horrocks (Bubble) and June Whitfield (Gran) are all reprising their roles. Looks like Patsy might be participating in some gender play of her own, as this behind the scenes image shows.
