It appears that the Brit-wit TV star and show creator Jennifer Saunders will be writing a big-screen version of her brilliant early-’90s sitcom, Absolutely Fabulous, after she’s finished her work on the Spice Girls’ London stage musical, Viva Forever (which we have to assume is about neither the paper towels nor the Warhol superstar), which could take forever, who knows. According to Nikki Finke’s Deadline London blog, “Ab Fab: The Movie will kick off with Patsy and Edina waking up hungover in the empty drifting yacht of an oligarch in the middle of the ocean. Even worse, their cellphones can’t get a signal.” We can only hope that after all the years that have passed since we last saw Edina and Patsy, that the characters have aged along with the actors. Good news is that BBC America has recently co-produced three new Absolutely Fabulous TV specials; bad news for us yankees is that the first one will air at Christmas, but only in the UK.
