Oh darling, this is such absolutely fabulous news!
The divine bitches from the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous are about to make their way onto the big screen!
Jennifer Saunders, the creator and co-star of Ab Fab, says she’s ready to write the screenplay for the highly anticipated flick that has been rumored about for more than 3 years now!
So what’s been the hold up?! Are the real life Patsy and Edna as sauced out of their minds as they are on TV?
No, it wasn’t quite a hangover that kept Jennifer from tackling this project. She’s just worried that the film adaptation won’t be as good as the television show!
Saunders spilled in an interview over the weekend, saying:
"Well I have to do it now because I’ve threatened to a lot. It’s like the second album syndrome. Once you’ve had a bit of success, the last thing you want to do is go and make a flop. So the biggest fear in me is that it won’t be good enough. I’m really nervous about it.”
Oh sweetie, chin up now! Just have a drink or two or ten and we’re sure that something brilliant is just bound to happen!
More deets to come!
